SKOB legends reunite

The annual gathering of a group of SKOB Legends (self-proclaimed!) was held at the Flying Duck Hotel on AFL Grand Final Eve.

The history of this lunch started in 1983 with Mouth (Tim Arnold), Jughead (John Olle), Pup (Tim Corrigan) Harry (Mark Harrison) Mother (Nick Brennan) & Pat Flanagan (a CBC Hockey player!) - all old school mates decided to meet on the Friday prior to the AFL Grand Final for a long lunch. It started in SKOB sponsored pubs, the occasional restaurant then back to pubs- The Emerald, The Whale’s Cricketers Arms, Laurie Taberner’s Rising Sun Hotel, Star & Gartner, Curley’s Golden Fleece, The Flying Duck.

Numbers vary every year but it is a great catch up-open to everybody and a great day to reminisce about old times and what a great Club the SKOBFC is. This year was particularly special as we celebrated the Club’s first A Grade Premiership in our 70 year history - when you look at what the group has contributed to SKOBFC over a long period of time, you can understand why it was so special! There is over 3,365 SKOB games and so many awards and positions of responsibility that this group has given to SKOBFC – it really shows what a great Club we all belong to!
