Join us this Friday September 28 for the 4th Annual AFL Grand Final Night in Winnipeg.
Members and friends of the Winnipeg Bears Australian Football Club and the DUCW will be at Boston Pizza, 1475 Henderson Hwy, from 9:30 pm onward.
The Aussie Rules football grand final is the biggest event on the Australian sporting calendar, and will be broadcast live from Melbourne. This year it’s the Collingwood Magpies versus the West Coast Eagles. The large projector screen will be going, with all the pre-game live music and, of course, a rousing rendition of the Australian national anthem. Can we top last year’s effort?!?! Yes, we can!
No need to RSVP. Just turn up and be part of the event. Family and friends welcome.
More details at the WBAFC’s Facebook page.
The October 2017 issue of the Southern Yarn is ready for you to download.
The most important thing for your calendar is doing an RSVP for this year’s Not -So-Formal-Dinner, toward the end of the month. You’ll also need to include your menu choices, so read up on it all in the Yarn!
Here’s the direct link to the issue download (PDF).
Crows or Tigers? Who will win the AFL GF?
Join us on Friday September 29 from 9:30 pm at Boston Pizza on Henderson Highway in Winnipeg.
Members of the DUCW will join AFL fans and players to watch the greatest game on the AFL calendar.
We will likely go until around 2:00 am on Saturday morning, so catch up on your sleep now because it’s going to be a fantastic event not to be missed!
The July 2017 issue of The Southern Yarn is finally here. Check it out! There are seven pages for us, the online readers. Those print subscribers just get six pages, and in B&W! Oh well, I guess they don’t need the handy links, etc.

Plans are underway to launch the Winnipeg Bears Australian Football Club. And DUCW member Allan Sharman and friends are looking for 10 to 12 people to get the ball rolling.
Men and women of all ages and abilities are invited to attend the first ever Aussie rules football practice in Winnipeg – Tuesday July 18 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at River East Collegiate (295 Sutton Ave).
Organisers are in regular contact with AFL Canada, and have also contacted the Irish Association to see if there are any Gaelic footballers about.
“LIKE” their new Facebook page for all the information about the inaugural practice, as well as upcoming events.
If you would like to be involved or are simply curious about the AFL, contact Allan at email@example.com.
