    I left early, it was a slow night and nothing happened for the first hour and a bit.

    Very disappointing to say the least, especially with no Bevo or PG

    First few of these were great but in recent years they've been average. Time to revamp it.

    I haven't been since 2017 from memory.

    I didn't go last year, but my mate said it was a lot better

    Yeah we were very disappointed by that also! Apparently they can’t make time for the members.

    Because of work I came late. Beers & Foods were much better than last year and you could choose from many premium beers.

    That was the only positive for me.

    I went after our list manager just to ask about Buku K and Cat B but couldn't find him
    The other questions I would have asked were if we're drafting for needs and Cody was next on the list? Why we have overlooked B Kemp and D Robertson for Cody.

    He must have anticipated these questions from me hence he disappeared into the background

    I became a social club member for 2016 so lucky as I got a GF ticket. How long have these events been on for?

    I joined the social club in 2008. I'm not sure when I first went to one of these but I had a Facebook memory today of attending in 2011, so at least that long!

    Sam was on stage early with the new recruits and draftees but after that I couldn't spot him either.

    Re: Events Thread

    Other than the coach and president attending, what else do people think could improve the night?

    The venue in the medallion club is a million times better than the victory room. No long lines for anything (other than player photos). They get a few different people up to speak and provide a drink, food and an ice cream. If all players weren't in attendance it must have been very close to 100%. I'm not sure what else people expect?

    One funny thing I saw last night was Scott West, dressed like he had just come from a building site, sitting down next to the raffle table screwing up the raffle tickets and putting them into the box for the draw. 7 best and fairests but not too precious to perform the menial tasks.

    This is the issue, we would have at least 10 stickied threads. I tend to add them closer to actual events starting date

    Adding them close to the event is really the only way around it. We could have a page devoted to stickied threads but who's going to look at that? I know that I wouldn't bother.
