Ask them why the superstore is Barren Sharon.

Few of reasons

One, they've simple run out of stuff due to winning the flag. Demand much greater than what they thought it would be

two, change in major sponsor on the back of the jumper means new stock wasn't coming in until Nov

Three; Puma outing new proper full range for season 2018 is on it's way. Need to remember we hardly had anything this year due to the rush when BLK went into administration

Thats probably not the type of question to ask @ an AGM

Thats up there with the lady complaining about the players being late @ training a couple of years ago & the idiot person asking Peggy to "address the elephant in the room" that  was chopstick gate

Online Jackstar is back!!!

Do the current Premiership get awarded with Life Membership on the night ?
Might be the best free event of the year for members if they are

Absolutely they should, questions to be asked if not. Momentous occassion.
Disinformation is 70% letting stupid journalists make the wrong assumptions, repeatedly.

I would have voted for O'Rourke and Powell anyway. I feel they could be great future contributors even potential Presidential material.

Richmond awarded life membership to three valued stalwarts of the Club at its 2017 Annual General Meeting held this evening.

Past player and current president of Richmond’s Former Players and Officials Association Peter Williams, hard-working, popular trainer throughout the Tigers’ golden era from the late 1960s to the early 1980s (and well beyond that), Tom O’Donnell, and the Club’s long-time resident journalist Tony Greenberg, have become the latest recipients of the prestigious honour of life membership at Tigerland.

Resolution of the 2 amendments to the constitution was passed by a huge margin

100 signatures can no longer trigger an EGM

About 200+ people were at @Richmond_FC AGM tonight



John O'Rourke and Joe Powell were elected to 3 years.

Rob Dalton gave the financial report:

A member question about paragraph 7, page 13 financial report. He finds it ambiguous. Dalton says nothing to report/add to that paragraph

Member question, asking for details on club and leisure division. Is it profitable? Dalton: We had a small loss of $50,000.

Stephen Mayne question..no need to fleece punters anymore. The club doesnt need po-kies anymore does it... Dalton: All our business is under constant review. We do make contributions to the community. Our strategy is to build other forms of revenue

DALTON again : Im confident we will resolve our po-ker machine strategy in the near future

A query about whether the club and WWF could do something together. (Sadly not the old wrestling organisation)

A query about the redevelopment of the ground. Peggy: "we hope to have some drawings to sure in first quarter of next year"
