Old Guv Legends Luncheon, 30 June, 2017.

We’ve got 32 Starters So Far…

It’s Rob Powell’s time to become a Legend.

If ever there was a bloke who deserves a “gong” it’s Rob.

Starting at the Old Guv in the 1970s in the Jobbing Room Rob became the driving force behind a revitalised Social Club and we had some great Picnics and wonderful Cabarets at the Netley Canteen.

Come along and join in the fun and celebrate with Rob and Wendy.

The Luncheon will be held on Friday, 30 June, 2017, commencing at 12 noon.

Venue: West Adelaide Football Club, 57 Milner Road, Richmond 5033.

A Salad Bar is now available at Westies.

Pictured Above is a photo of Jenny Watson-Easther and me at the Old Guv Legends Luncheon held on Friday, 24 February, 2017 at the West Adelaide Football Club.
A great woman is Jenny and we all look forward to the day she will join us on a regular basis at our Friday Luncheons.
But first you must retire girl and don’t forget to bring Gary along as well.

Judy Marks, Pam Palmer, Janet McGuiness, Alex Riley, John and Toni Manfield, Don Woolman, Marianne Hunn, Rod Parham, Ray Belt, Bob Downs, Jack and Helen Flack, Dennis Grover, Kevin Rex Stack-Neale and Judy, Vic Potticary, Brian Hartshorne, Conrad and Norma Rogers, Peter Wright, Jyll Watson, Garth Mugford, Mike Burnett, The Korffs (Charlie, Ruth, Thelma, Andrew and Eireann), Eunice Wright, Ellen Krueger, Geoff Michell, David and Wendy Walker, Jenny Easther and Dennis Duthie.


Pictured: Don Woolman and Brian Hartshorne.
“Grubby” Hartshorne has told us all over 100 times now just how much he loved Don Woolman as a Government Printer and at the Luncheon he finally had his big chance to buddy up to Don.“Sickening, isn’t it?”


And look who else showed up complaining bitterly about how much money she was losing to catch up with her old workmates.
It could only be Jenny Easther (above) of course, always with plenty to say, but looking quite radiant and chirpy.
