ANZAC day 2009.

Check out the photo album and the ANZAC day link along with the facebook fan page.

It all started with a luncheon at the Hilton Hotel at 11am on ANZAC day. I was the invited guest speaker. At our table were Murray Weideman and Thorold Merrett, along with my son Simon, his mate Rob Rose, Paul Hunter a Vet mate and two listed players.
During the lunch I addressed some 160 Collingwood players and supporters. It was a lot of fun...particularly when I mentioned I was a Bomber fan. Then - off to the MCG, front row seats and the Bombers won!
Many thanks to Ron O'Dwyer - ex Collingwood player and quiet achiever.
Below is the flyer issued for the day.

Side by side we stick together.

By attending “The Heart of Collingwood” Past Players’Anzac Day Luncheon, you are helping many former players receive medical treatment from injuries sustained through their playing days with the Collingwood Football Club.

We will have a good roll up of former Colingwood icons along with some current day list players. Additionaly, we must not overlook the significance of Anzac Day.

We are honoured to have Mr Barry Heard, a Vietnam Veteran, as one of our guest speakers. Barry speaks openly about this painful and soiled era, his book, “Well Done Those Men” is a best seller and draws on his own experience as a young conscript and those of his comrades.
