Sportsman's night a success at Nagambie Bowls Club.November 22, 2012 11:17am
He's mastered almost everything else, so why not bowls? Ron Barassi has a couple of hard markers in Wayne Schimmelbusch and Crackers Keenan to navigate past at the Nagambie Bowls Club's sportsmans night on Friday.
The region’s sports fans were treated to a night with a difference on Friday when the Nagambie Bowls Club conducted a sportsman’s night.
It could hardly go wrong when it featured Ron Barassi, Peter ‘‘Crackers’’ Keenan, Wayne Schimmelbusch and Mick Gayfer.
More than 90 people turned up, with funds going to St Mary’s House Of Welcome, a Fitzroy-based drop-in centre for the homeless and disadvantaged.
Everyone loves Ron - Moz "Strauchanie" Fowler and George Pianta were among the many locals getting their photo taken with Ron Barassi at the Nagambie Bowls Club on Friday night.
The evening started with bowls on the green with the legends, while others chose to have photos taken and memorabilia signed.
This was followed with a barbecue meal supplied by the bowls club before the guests of honour were formally introduced by president Keith Holland.
Barassi had many tales to tell of his vast football career, Schimmelbusch recalled his glory days at North Melbourne and Gayfer likewise with Collingwood.
Last, but no means least, was larrikin Keenan who thoroughly entertained the audience with his humorous and well-timed one-liners.
Ray White Nagambie auctioneer Mark Boyer, who took part in the bike ride the legends were on, sold off a Melbourne jumper ($320) and a North Melbourne jumper ($350) for the charity.
Nagambie Bowls Club will soon be raffling a framed Melbourne jumper signed by Barassi as a fundraiser for the club. Anyone interested in tickets can contact Fiona Smith on 0418
