2009 'Yabby' Jeans Jug
This annual event between the 3 teams Allan Jeans coached – Richmond, St Kilda and Hawthorn was once again held at the Phillip Island Golf Club Cowes.
Each year we head off in a bus driven by Geoff Blackbourn. Bowlers and golfers join together for lunch at the Golf Club and after a quick bite the bowlers shoot off for their competition at the Bowling Club while the golfers line up for the big challenge.
Unfortunately we could not emulate the feat of the previous 3 years where we won the Jug on each occasion. In 2008 for instance we won the event easily with John Pitura, Cameron Clayton and Don Davenport running 1st , 2nd , and 3rd.
2009 saw St Kilda winning for the first time. Kevin Callander was our leading scorer but the rest of us let him down. Our Bowls boys were successful once again making it 4 years in a row.
Many thanks to Geoff Blackbourn for his patience in stopping the bus at unscheduled stops on the way home. Also thank you to the Cowes Golf Club and Billy Meaklim for the magnificent fish and chips bought in San Remo.
Back To The 90's (Legends Game)
To all those who represented the Tigers on and off the field in the 90’s, if it wasn’t for your involvement and sacrifice during this decade the Tigers would not exist, let alone survive to be the Club we are today! People rattled money tins along Punt Road, took pay cuts and played for the love of the jumper and teammates.
The Richmond Former Players & Officials are asking you for one more effort. Come and celebrate with us at the Legend’s Cup match day function!
Last year the boys from the 80’s had a great day and now it’s “Back to the ‘90’s”! You won’t regret it! All 1990's U19’s, Reserves, Seniors & Officials and partners are welcome. ALL RFP&OA members are welcome to attend.
It is a free day including entry and seating. There is only one requirement… you must be a financial member of the Richmond Former Players & Officials Assoc.
The day begins at 11.00am at the “G” on Saturday 8th April, which is Round 3 vs West Coast, with a “Legends” game featuring former players and Corporates. If you wish to participate you can download the entry form here... http://
Following the Legends game there will be a social gathering throughout the afternoon in the Harrison Room at the G with drinks at bar prices.
After the AFL match everyone is invited back to Punt Road for drinks and finger food with the compliments of RFP&OA and RFC.
So, if you haven’t become a member of the Richmond Former Players and Officials Association yet, download the membership form http://
Having done that, and you would like to attend the 1990’s Reunion, please advise Leonie Bawden at firstname.lastname@example.org
Entry & seating tickets will be distributed probably in the week before the Reunion.
Once a Tiger, always a Tiger!
