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 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. 😓

Have you received an email from Australia Post by any chance Males with a tracking number for your delivery?

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

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.

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

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the
