As the mode of previous weeks the seniors were playing for their season and so were Somerville with the winner a chance to play finals. Due to the significance of the game it was always going to be a brutal contest and it was all day, with a lot of contested ball and a few spot fires throughout the day, Thirds even Fev was having a few scuffles on what was to be his last ever game of competitive The Thirds continued to battle hard against a football. He announced his retirement after quality Somerville team that have the game and was very emotional thanking traditionally been a powerhouse in under 1 the hasting’s players and club as a whole for footy. They were very completive early and welcoming him to our great club.

Back to the game and it was tight at half time with us going in a goal down Somerville had the wind in the third and we just had to stay in touch, we tried really hard with the coach and Luke Hewitt working hard around the ball and Joel Standfield playing well down back. We missed the class of young Dylan Paarlberg – who was missing through the birth of his first child (congratulations on the arrival of Mila), we also missed our captain and star Paul Rogasch. We done ok in the quarter and were down 4 goals but coming home with the breeze, the opposition kicked a couple early in the last which took the wind out of our sails and although trying hard and playing reasonable footy we lost by 31 points. After the game coach Ricky called for a united front to ensure we move forward next season, although missing finals the improvement from are players aged 19 – 24 was enormous and we matched all sides at times through the year, so with a few needed addition’s and the growth of our group we should be in for an improved season next year. Joel Standfield also announced his retirement from senior football due to work commitment, he has had a great year, hopefully we see him again on the park, filling in for the teams if needed from time to time. See you all next year

ErG’s Essential Gossip #133 The Erg regrets ever setting a challenge for “inventions A to Z.” Some bright spark who wishes to remain anonymous, ploughed in on the A’s. “You idiot Erg an axe is not an invention!” Huh? The writer goes on, “whatta (sic) about anaesthetics, the Atomic bomb and surely someone as smart as you (The Erg) Knows about the Antikythera Device?” Flummoxed best describes both Ant and Erg. A quick google has that device found in a sunken galleon of the coast of Antikythera Island. The device itself is an advanced astronomical calculator from 100 years BC. Largely based on the sun’s movement and phases of the moon the device could have been used to set the timing of Viking raids or when it was an ideal time to make an auspicious retreat. Rather than pursue anymore A’s or B’s for that matter, The Ant has been snooping in on conversations heard around the Club during this week of abysmal weather. Number one topic was what’s for dinner and Hastings as the tail gating capital as opposed to one headlight hell.

The Hastings Club Flyer is a publication providing information to Members.

Number two was establishing a network of high temperature incinerators to deal with all that waste we see on TV, at the same time generating much needed and cheaper power. Referred to as

WtoE projects. One of these operates under New York controlling rubbish and providing power to the grid. The challenge is where to place a WtoE on the Peninsula? Next topic was about attracting new members and welcoming back past members to the greatest country club in Victoria. Something resembling a “Member’s appreciation evening,” might be the go? Giving people a social opportunity, to sign up and commit to the Clubs while mingling with other members. The alcohol tax involved some political discourse among long time members and then out of the blue and rather amazingly a nuclear power industry was next cab off the rank. Seems there are serious concerns with the long-term viability of fossil fuels and not being able to fire up the 4WD, to tow the caravan seemed to motivate the discussion. Didn’t Premier Henry Bolte target French Island for a nuclear reactor back in the sixties? Stuff around the club. The Ant ranging around the perimeter of the young ladies’ footy game wondered about their dedication. the temperature was a mere five (5) degrees, wind howling in directly from the polar regions, the big ground obligingly, muddy-wet, yet thirty-six excited females plus animated officials engaged in the contest as if it was a fine day at the

MCG. Good on you all. Entertaining? Certainly, interesting and deserving at the very least of a token entry fee to watch the game one would have thought. Meanwhile up the road and Somerville put to the test our last gasp effort to be involved in the finals. Unfortunately, further up the road Seaford put the sword to any chance of any eastern Peninsula club playing finals. Nevertheless, with some stirring efforts of our younger players, complemented with a solid group of local talent, next year’s team is looking more than promising. Congratulations to all involved with the Hastings Football Netball Club in a tough year, on and off the field. Well done. Of course, another topic was the Pearcedale v Karingal game o.o to o.o. A draw. What happened? Read Belle’s account in next week’s flyer. As The Ant said to The Erg “I always wanted to be a procrastinator.... just never got around to it. And so, it came to pass the Erg and The Ant are off for a two-week holiday leaving the column to Belle of Balnarring. Be safe, be well, and catch up soon.
