Much has been written in previous editions of the Growler newsletter and websites about those players who this year have reached 100 games.
As of Saturday night each of them has now been formally inducted as full members of the 100 Club. Congratulations Hannah Dunn, Kristen Turner, Brett Fruend and Paul Williams on this fantastic achievement.
Close to 120 people filled the Tigers Club to be part of the inductions. This included some guest who travelled significant distances to be there including Michael Kavanagh, James Kavanagh and his partner Amy Beattie (from Melbourne), Chris Davis (from Wagga), and Ian and Linda Muir (from “enemy territory” – Ainslie).
The night also saw Brett Fruend acknowledged for his 150 Club games (achieved in last year’s preliminary final) and Andrew Swan’s 100 Club games (achieved on the day of this year’s 100 Club dinner).
Expertly compared by Paul Walshe as usual, the night also included the dedication of our time-keepers box in the name of long-standing volunteer timekeeper Wally Thompson and our electronic scoreboard dedicated in the name of Jill Bright for her work over many decades of operating both the old manual scoreboard and the new electronic one. Wally and Jill’s plaques have been installed at the front of the Jack MacNamara Grandstand at Allinsure Park.
