Do we know if there is anything organised at the Bentleigh Club??

Rang them and unfortunately, no.  Very poor since mfc ostensibly own it.  In fact their website no longer shows any connection with mfc at all.

This guy and a few of his demon mates will be proudly watching from far above:

A moving picture from the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland.  Brings a tear or two to the eye.

Agreed Wadda.  Max may be the one to do it.  Coincidentally:  "Gawn taking Stynes and Bailey with him into battle against West Coast" https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/gawn-taking-stynes-and-bailey-with-him-into-battle-against-west-coast-20180918-p504ex.html

“I definitely reflect on Jim Stynes as much as I can,” Gawn told RSN on Tuesday.

“He’s got a couple of mottos that stick with me and every time I look at my jumper before I play it sort of pops up in my head.

“And Dean Bailey I’m going to be forever grateful to for drafting me so there’s two guys that sit with me and I definitely think about them.”

Max's pre-game ritual is to look at the #11 on his jumper before each game:

Funny how an image like the headstone really stirs the emotions.  A reminder that a lot of people have been on this journey with us.  Still tear up at the picture.

I'm a bit torn on what to do... My family & I are happy to watch it at home together but like the idea of watching it with a heap of dees fans for some atmosphere. I'm a little disappointed with the options the clubs put forward.. Qualifying final Collingwood put big projectors in the Holden center function room & have opened up Margaret court arena this week... Cramming into a sporting globe or fed square aren't overly appealing

Fed square could be quite symbolic as it is in the heart of Melbourne right next to iconic images such as Flinders St Station and St Paul’s Cathedral. 

The lack of beer will be a deterrent with Fed Square but I hope lots of Dees fans still turn out. Nothing stopping people from going to some pubs in the area for some cheeky pre-drinks! The only other option I could’ve seen them doing is out the front of AAMI Park in the shadows of the MCG. But that would present the exact same (alcohol related) problem.

 Collingwood is setting up their live-feed screen at Margaret Court arena @ $10 a person (5,000 people).

I guess our club finances don't stretch that far.  Not complaining as I'm just rapt that we have come this far.  Just a shame that we can't all get together in an arena type atmosphere.

 

Edit:  Now that I think about it they we would have to hire Rod Laver arena for us which seats about 12-14,000.  Prohibitively expensive, I'd say.

I ended up contacting the club and they advised the following;

" Thanks for taking the time to contact The Melbourne Football Club.

Unfortunately, The Melbourne Football Club no longer owns or has any connection to the Bentleigh Club.

This is why they haven’t been promoted as an Official Live Site, I am sure they will still be showing it.

Thank you for your time. "

That happened rather quietly.  The last announcement re pokies was in April and the club announcement said:  The Leighoak Club will be sold to Moonee Valley Racing Club in July, while the Bentleigh Club's gaming licence will not be renewed beyond 2022.

Surprised I didn't see anything about the Bentleigh Club sale in the local papers - that land is worth squillions.   It would be quite newsworthy.

I think Fed Square will be the best place to go! If enough people turn up the atmosphere will be great. Plenty of pubs around for pre and post drinks!

I was going to head to the Sporting Globe but it appears I might be down the coast so think I'll watch it at the Lorne Pub. There's usually a pretty good contingent of Dees supporters there

MCC dining room is open for MCC members & guests.

Calling all Demons supporters!

The club will open up the Members Dining Room and Bar from 1.00pm on Saturday for members and guests to view the Dees' AFL Preliminary Final in Perth against West Coast Eagles.

The game will be shown live on the two big screens in the room as well as all other screens around the room.

Members of all categories and up to four guests will be able to register to watch the game and enjoy a few drinks from the bar, or they can book a table now for lunch before the game in the Members Dining Room.

The Members Reserve neat casual dress standard applies.
