The venue might have been too big for the particular event but it was big on fun.
President Paul “Hooch” Turner invited Coburg FC President Kevin Breen up to kick off the formal part of the evening and he shared his views on the progress VFL team and the relationship with Superules emphasising how important the alignment is and the unity it creates around the entire club.
Hooch then took the audience through the vision and objectives of the club highlighting that the club wants to become the Superules “Destination” Club and the number primary objectives are to make finals in the next two years and deliver a premiership in the next five years.

After a short break comedian Gabrielle Rossi hit the stage to warm the crowd up for the less formal part of the evening and the Coaches Grill.
Coaches Adam Bruni, Jamie Arnold and Paul Pitman joined the stage and Scott “Wiz” Ryan took over the microphone to ask the probing questions.
