    Yeah, unfortunately unlike Sydney & Melbourne we don’t really have much of an opportunity for big Swans functions here, but the get-togethers to watch games during the season are fun and an event like this brings supporters closer together & the past players (so far Ryan O’Keefe, Marty Mattner, Scott Direen & now Max) might make us feel a little closer to the club. Great & tireless work from the coordinators to organise events like this for the supporters over in SA.

    As an aside, memorabilia is often up for auction or raffle on the night. I’m not sure, but I wonder if the coordinators might take interstate bidders or raffle ticket purchases for those interested who can’t actually attend. Often it has to do with the guests (last year it was a large framed print signed - and personalised if the auction winner wished - by Scott Direen) or items donated by the Swans themselves I guess anyone interested could email the coordinators to find out

    Will Max's son Health who also played for us be in attendance? Heath was struck down cruelly by injuries which curtailed his career. I always thought Max was a underrated player being able to play key forward or back. I remember that hangar he took at the Lake Oval against Hawthorn, on John Hendrie I think?

    I also wish everyone in SA a great night!

    One year I'll rock up as the "special guest".
    One year.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Don’t think so. I’m pretty sure that Heath still resides in Sydney

    It is a top night, Steve. The organisers, Jeanette and Peter, work their guts out to make these events special, memorable and terrific value. I would buy you a beer if you made it along. You meet some great supporters who are passionate about our team. A highlight is the room coming together as a group at the end of the night to sing the club song. It makes you feel special.
