2024 Preseason Camp in Lorne

  • Demonland changed the title to 2024 Preseason Camp

It is the quickest way to break down barriers and help integrate a new group into the team structure and also provide close daily contact for the youngsters with our core playing group via the use of positive team building exercises. Eating Together breakfast, lunch and dinner and spending time together after hours. Rekindling the love for each other after a horrendous fade out two years in a row. The coaches and players can benefit from this type of exercise, like we did in SA & WA in 2021.😁😁

Mmmmm…lorne 😋

The Lorne sausage, also known as square sausageor slice, is a traditional Scottish food item made from minced meat, rusk and spices.[1] Although termed a sausage, no casing is used to hold the meat in shape, hence it is usually served as square slices from a formed block. It is a common component of the traditional Scottish breakfast.

Spot on, DZ. I liken it to one great big slumber party 🎉 🥳 🎊 And who doesn’t love a slumber party?!

In the same vein, albeit to a much lesser degree, I love interstate matches because it’s a bonding experience like nothing else. We all get early flights so we can spend time together before the match and at the end of the match we hang out together, have dinner, drinks, whatever then mostly sleep together in the same hotel or hotel room or a nearby hotel or even share a bed (I’ve slept with so many members of the DA it’s not funny 🤭). We meet up for brekky then hang out together in groups ‘til our flights home are due. This is as opposed to matches in Vic where we pack up the gear and go our separate ways.

When it was at Maroochydore was it at the Maroochydore multi sports complex ?

I played there in a Masters carnival in October it’s a great facility with six or so ovals with a carpet like surface

Its humid but so is Brisbane Alice and Darwin and there is warm water surf and golf for recreation 

no offense to Lorne but I know where I’d be going!

I'm not entirely sure to be honest, I presume it's after Christmas?

It’s next week. Mustn’t go for very long because they have time off at Xmas.

I think the footy department cap cuts and probably the shorter preseason took care of the interstate training camps. Huge expense to get up there for a week +.
 

A few days at Lorne can accomplish the team bonding for a fraction of the cost

Nah. Both are as greasy AF but square sausage tastes much better. You can actually sense your arteries furring up as you eat it.

Pretty sure it was, on Fisherman's Rd. Was always a great trip to the open sessions. Really miss it. After training and the player meet we would call past the Mooloolaba fish markets to take a seafood feast home. It was a good set up and always got a great crowd.

But wait, there’s more! I once slept with *10 DA members at the same time. Throw in a Board member for good measure, and what a night! Did you suspect that????

 

*it was Sleep at the ‘G so technically I slept with 800 people at the same time. 😅

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
