Membership packs

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have an idea when the membership packs will be sent  out ? I seem to remember we had them pre Christmas in past years so they could be given as Christmas presents!

We received the packs today minus the membership cards. Club says our cards should arrive by the end of the week.

I received an sms Friday saying that Aus Post had my memberships, assumed I would’ve received it today but didn’t? As long as I get them by the end of the week, one is a Xmas present. 😉

I'm pretty sure I've always received these just prior to Christmas. I recall getting an email saying you had to purchase your memberships by a certain time in order to get then before Chrissy.

Has anyone received the end-of-season magazine yet?

I hope the club is not struggling to service the increased number of members it has on board.

IIRC, the magazine isn't usually sent with the membership pack.  I recall it coming out before the start of the season rather than pre Christmas. 

I doubt the club is struggling to service the member numbers.  It all seems to be running very efficiently and these days highly automated.. 

In fact it appears there is an automated tracking system in place and it sends sms when membership packs are with aussie post, having be sent from the mailing house.

With all the great content we get online through the official site and social media do we really need the magazine anymore? Seems like an unnecessary cost in this day and age that could be better spent on us winning a premiership.

Just received an email from Australia Post saying that my package from MFC is due for delivery tomorrow.

That means it will likely arrive around Australia Day.

I've been wondering about that myself. One of them is my Dad's Christmas present.

Sadly , this could very well happen with Auspost. Certainly not the best service from that mob !

My MFC/Demon army membership pack(s) arrived by courier at 6.30pm tonight - Yahooooooo! The 3 other members of the family didn't get their memberships though. I think that's because I order a members cap and t-shirt and the parcel was too big for the normal post.

It's a different package this year - VERY professional looking. No longer do the items come in a 'pencil case', it's all in a paper/cardboard 'envelope' package.

I just recieved a completely different family's 4 membership packs. Will be phoning the club and dropping the memberships off at the correct address this afternoon. I have to go past there anyway. I just hope my membership isn't being sent elsewhere as well

I haven’t received mine yet, one is a Xmas present too. I received an sms last Friday saying that Aus Post had my memberships. Unless it comes early Monday, it will be given after Xmas. 🤬

Edit: Melbourne membership just told me that mine has definitely been posted, also stated that Aus Post are delivering through the weekend? I still won’t hold my breath though. 😓

i've received no mail or sms

fortunately i'm in no hurry

but it does make you wonder about the process. as far as i know all the afl clubs use a common (outsourced?) process, so individual clubs only have limited amount of input or control

My sms was received on Monday... still nothing in the post; but it is a long bike ride up the Hume to Sydney.

I received mine today and while it is obvious that the club would have gone to great lengths to prioritise the delivery of my membership package I ask you all to be patient, the ordinary packages are on their way to you all.

No, but I haven’t any other year either? I’m hoping the lady I spoke to at Melbourne Membership was correct and Aust Post are delivering through the weekend? 🤞🏻

My sister also received the SMS last week and nothing yet for herself and her kids. She’s in the same boat as you.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
