Canberra Raiders fans unite in Melbourne - Fan meet up for the Round 3 clash with the Warriors

Post by brian_muz »

I posted at the end of last year that I'm keen to see if there is interest in a VIC/Melbourne based group to get together and watch Raiders games: https://www.thegh.com.au/forum/viewtopi ... 6#p1765256. Well, the first game is a week from tomorrow so I thought I'd see who is interested.

I'm proposing we meet at The Great Northern in Carlton North to watch the game: https://www.gnh.net.au/. They're a great reasonably central pub and they've been really good in the post with booking an area and confirming in advance that they're showing the game with the sound up. I'll book a table/s on Tuesday based on how many people are interested. The AFL doesn't kick off until the following Thursday so they're shouldn't be any clashes.

So, if you're keen, either post below or PM me.

OK, we're go for tomorrow! The GN have confirmed our booking and that they'll be showing the game in our room with the sound up. All we have to do is rock up in our finest green, order a beer, do the viking clap and cheer on the boys. It's not too late to get on board. Please let me know you're coming though so I can increase the headcount for our booking.

So the meet up went ahead at The Great Northern today and we had 13 die hard Raiders fans rock up. A lot more than I expected when I posted a week ago. A bunch of people already knew each other but some of us met for the first time. I was a really cool afternoon (capped of by the win!) and people seem keen to do it again next week. Thanks to thegh.com.au for your support and bring on round 2!
