How does the game feature in the phsyce of the town RGR.

Does it have any sense of occasion or is it just a novelty amongst the locals.

For that matter is the Alice an Aussie Rules town or a rugby league town?

Town is split between two sports, when AFL in town people from communities come in, is a great day (and often an eventful evening....)

Is a warm up game between teams from the top end against one from the centre, having seen a bit of footy up here, this could be very entertaining and well worth arriving a bit early, could be quite entertaining

Anyone staying at Lasseters? I was banned from their about 12 years ago. I’m heading over for this game with a mate who goes for Adelaide. We’ll probably end up at the Casino. I’ve ordered a fake nose and glasses. 

Cmon.... what's the story...lol

For those coming to Alice, there is an open training session (from previous years a light workout) scheduled for 3pm, expect it to be very light as the weather forecast is unseasonably warm for this game, Saturday and Sunday looking like the two warmest days we have had in a long time

Thinking about it for next year.

What about the slow road trip via say Mildura and Broken Hill. In a non 4 wheel drive city car.

Any ideas of nice places to stop and see along the way and of course the Rock (accomodation is pricey there and hard to get but you only go once or twice !!) Don't mind staying at old pubs or the like rather than the usual characterless Aussie motel.

Mootwingee.

Pink Lakes @ Walpeup.

Play 18 holes at Manangatang on the scrapes: watch the (I think the) 16th par 3 wedge over the mallee scrub!

My wife is from Alice Springs.

According to family legend when she turned up to the casino and proudly told the bouncer it was her 18th he did an enormous double take. She'd been a regular there for years (depending on who you believe).

Just wondering as to what the lighting is like at the ground and whether a night game is a possibility in the future.

Possible, I think, but not needed, very cold here at night in winter, normal temperatures 20-22 degrees

Below 10, sometimes lower, very cold for locals, would effect crowds, especially children
