Meeting at Bridey O'Riley's at midday. Have been doing the same for the past couple of seasons. Also go to the Carlton Social club at half time and after the game. Always a big social day on VFL Grand Final day. Have not missed a vfa/vfl Grand Final for years. First GF was the 1970 Prahran v Williamstown Final. Have not missed a GF since. Have gone to most of the 2nd Division Grand Finals between 1971 and 1988. Best Grand Final was the 1990 Williamstown v Springvale match Best elated after the 1982 2nd Division GF between Northcote v Caulfield Most gutted after the 1985 Sandringham v Williamstown- seagulls lost by a goal. Most boring was the 1995 Springvale v Sandringham Worst GF was the 2000 Sandringham v North Ballarat at Waverley- they sold only light beer and with no pub in sight as Wheelers Hill is too far away. Always like to have a pre social drink where we meet up before the Grand Finals. Poor crowd as well with the Vermont v East Burwood the night before drawing a bigger crowd and also serving full strength beer. Most Fiery the 1976 GF between Port v Dandenong Biggest non event the 1984 2nd Division GF between Box Hill v Oakleigh Last but not least- miss the days of Toorak Park and Junction Oval finals. Best/worst Grand Finals, best memories in the Grand Finals attended Your thoughts ??
