Michael Egan jumped out of the box early and led up until round 5 before tapering off. A four way battle between Mark Gillman, Kane O'Brien, Peter Poelsman and a fast finishing Jason Dean then ensued and had the audience on the edge of its seat. Ultimately it was Gillman who took out the coveted award.
Richard Price led the count from round 2 onwards, polling 61 votes to take out the Reserves Best & Fairest, while popular clubman Ange Chiodo, who was considered favourite, won the Over 50s Best & Fairest by 29 votes. Ange Chiodo has now won the Best & Fairest in all three grades.
As expected Nick Duryea won the Best Clubman award while Ron Torcasio and Frank Massara became Life Members.
There was a reunion of sorts with considerable number of Life Members (and past members) present and we suitably entertained with music from "Who Said What" once the formal part of the evening was complete.
