    Just a reminder that with the big game on this weekend, the MCC Grand Final Blitz is on this Friday.

    So unless you’re a Richmond supporter (or one of the few GWS Giants fans), there’s no excuse to miss out!

    Just come to MCC before 1pm this Friday to enter before round 1.

    Feel free to contact Chris Kolak if you have any questions.

    I am still not 100% sure that I can play - but most likely I will.
    Hopefully, see you there!

    Thank you, Eamonn had a decisive attack against me - it was a miracle that my king escaped.
