    So how do we prove that we're WSW members?

     

    Or will they assume that we're the only ones silly enough to drive up there for it?

    I can't make the Newcastle game but I'll remember you're last post Efcso. I'm sure we'll go to central coast or Newcastle during the season. Looks like you've just nominated yourself :) :)

    We should be able to get 20 easily, no?

     

    Count me in for 2, maybe 3 pax.

     

    I'm used to being the DD/taxi driver. Someone has to do it. Rosas are a dream to drive too. Oh, and Damien (#1 son) can also drive one, although he's still on his green P's. Mind you, I let him drive our fire trucks, so he's not a bad steer.

    No chance :(

     

    Definitely think bus trips are a goer for the mariners and jets games during the regular season tho !

     

    That would be sick

    It will be a real pain in my arse but I'll have to try and make this. If I can get out of some commitments i should have a few car spots free.

    Bugger, I'm not going to be able to get there, away for work again. Live tweeting again @efcso?

     

    I could probably be persuaded to take the Transformer along for the ride. :meep:

    When I found out about this I quickly contacted MB to enquire as to whether he'd be willing to drive a thrifty or similar 20+ seater hire bus up there on Saturday.

    Unfortunately, he appears to be working so efcso I'm a starter if the hiring comes to fruition.

    Grab some quotes tomorrow and if its viable I'm sure Mack will pin it up somewhere so you can fill all the empty seats.

    Might be the last chance abbadabbadoo and I get to share an ale or 12, until theres another change of government in NT.

    Ok, so if we're gonna do this, we need to:

     

    - Contact Jets and request a parking spot for a minibus at the ground

    - Liaise with WSW to let them know we're going

    - Tentatively reserve a bus

    - Organise a route w/ pickup/dropoff points

     

    EDIT:

    At this point, Thrifty Penrith is showing as all booked-out for all bus classes on Saturday.

    I wont be able to do the bus... I have baby sitting duties as my wife is having a girly day and I still need to try and work out the logistics of bringing a 12 week old into the RBB :)

     

    He is a Wanderers member though so he's covered from that perspective

    I've contacted thrifty and can't even hire a 12 seater anywhere across western sydney this weekend.

    Someone please contact other hirers or contact club to organise 50+ seaters (from westbus etc) which we can get on at Parra.

    I'm flat out like a lizard drinking atm so must go now but will check in later tonight.

    The club can arrange a bus but it won't be cheap. Plus there won't be drinking on it. Told them to forget it.

     

    Alternatively, train it up there and arrange a local bus company to take you to the ground and back to the station.

    mate according to google maps this park is about a 5 minute walk from broadmeadow station.

     

    If it rains, I will be there. Weird stipulation I know, but I'm meant to be going out sailing on the harbour which I am really looking forward to... but don't want to miss our first away days against A-League opposition. Plus I have a mate who's a jets fan so would be good to have a thousand beers.

    right then. with the bus being out, I'll be taking the car.

     

    I'm going up via Belmont to visit Mum & Dad (hello accommodation for away games in Newcastle?) on the way up, but can probably give a couple of you reprobates a lift home after the game.

    There's trackwork on the Newcastle Line this weekend. Instead there are buses from Central. You're looking at a two and a half hour bus trip from Central to Broadmeadow. You'll need to be on the bus from Central by about 10:30 am.

    Fork, I picked a good weekend to promise her indoors could use the Wanderers wagon to take youngest daughter to regional netball match in Castle Hill on Saturday afternoon.

     

    Anyone own a helichopter or magic carpet???

    Cost is not a factor and if I didn't have enough hip flasks I could always borrow a couple off Big Dukes.

    • Most such pardons would be less controversial than the one handed to Flynn. However, among those campaigning for a pardon is Joseph Maldonado-Passage. Better known as Joe Exotic, the zookeeper subject of hit Netflix documentary Tiger King, he received a 22-year sentence for trying to hire a hitman to kill a rival. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/26/trump-pardon-michael-flynn-rick-gates Free the Tiger King!!
    • Wow they are at the point of arrogance that they can just tell people they use public money to shore up votes and get away with it https://www.smh.com.au/politics/nsw/berejiklian-backs-away-from-icac-funding-boost-but-not-pork-barrelling-20201126-p56ic4.html  
    • She joined Blacktown Spartans during the NPL season and now the reports are that WSW and Victory have made offers as well as overseas clubs but that she would prefer to stay in Australia. I believe she would be back to Sydney now after participating in the FFA's training camp that was held in Adelaide this past week. I would suspect she'll have to make a decision pretty shortly about which club to join with the season a month away. Roberts also joined the Spartans after the season, we might have decided not to retain her again after 4 seasons with us, she only played 3 games last year. Holloway suffering an ACL injury at age 36 may have forced her into retirement and even if she didn't, signing her again would be a really risky choice for the club.
