Here at down town Davis Station Antarctica, we're kicking off
the day with a pie and beer festival, admission is free and all
are welcome, but the downside is that you will have to provide
your own transport. Then the faithful will listen to game on the
radio, and the rest of us prey for a Saints victory. So cheers
and beers from the great white hell, Chuck.

James Kijas [firstname.lastname@example.org]
firstly let me congratulate you on a simply terrific site which
I have visited regularly over the last two seasons whle living
in Sweden. Now it is September again a group of us here in Uppsala
are desperately trying to locate a venue to watch the big game
and I wonder if its possible you might post a notice asking if
anyone in Scandinavia (we will go anywhere) if they know of a
place showing the match. It would mean a lot to me as last year
was a fiasco, we even tryed the embassy which agreed to send a
tape out from Australia they felt so bad. All we need is someone
who knows where we can watch it on Sky sports.
[So if you know of a place that has SKY sports and is willing
to have a few people around for the match, please Email
James and make his day...]
Craig Primmer [Craig.Primmer@bmc.uu.se]
James's prayers have been answered!!! Williams, the English pub
in Uppsala, has Sky Sports 2 and the owners have agreed to open
up especially so we can view the replay of the big game at midday
local time. The address of the pub is Oevre Slottsgatan 7, next
to Universitets Parken and near the main university building.
There will be hotdogs and hamburgers and expensive beer available
and of course, there will be the compulsory kick-to-kick at half
time. Just look for the red, white and black balloons above the
Steve Schreuder [Scuffys@algonet.se]
my name is Steve Schreuder and I live in Orebro Sweden. I have
live coverage available and will be up watching it with a few
mates. The best thing about all this is that I run a pub and will
obviously be having a few bevys during the proceedings. I'm actually
trying to get some Coldies &
Crownies delivered to the pub to make it even more like been at
home. My address is [email@example.com]
My pub is called Scuffy Murphy's Irish Pub and the adress to
the pub is Stortorget 8, 70210 Orebro, Sweden.
Cheers and now that the Cats have been knocked out I'll have
to say go the Saints!

I am an avid football supporter living in Istanbul, Turkey and
would kill to see the Grand Final. Do you know if it will be telecast
in Turkey and if not, do you know of a way I could find out. Your
help would be greatly appreciated.
Can anyone help here?

Sophia Stauffer Says:
As a member of the Alberta Teachers' Exchange Club in Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada we organize an AFL Final party for Australians
currently here on a teacher exchange program and Albertans who
have returned from an exchange in Australia. This tradition was
started years ago by a non-teacher who works for a local TV/radio
station and heard about our club. He invited Australians to his
home to watch the final game (he had the equipment for it - I
think this was back in the 60's).
We have 33 families in Alberta on exchange this year. Don't
know what the numbers for Canada are but between those who come
every year plus the returning Canadians, there's a "few"
fans in the Great White North!

below is the promotional flyer for the GF party. It should be
a good one, the prvious years have been a hoot. As you can see
we are going to start with a footy match at about 6pm. Here is
Nashville we have just established a new footy club: Nashville
Australian Football Club. There is actually a footy comp going
in the the Mid west (MARFL), as you know (your page has a link
to it). It is located a bit too far north for nashville to play
in it. But, the nrearest team is Louisvile Kentucky, and they
are planniung to come down to Nashville to attend our party. Hopefully,
they'll be the opposition in the demo match/GF curtain raiser
(sounds a bit pretentious doesn't it).
If you could let people now we are having a match and say that
everyone is welcome to attend and pull on a guernsey if they now
how to play or would like to try. We'll have a little skills clinic
too for anyone interested in trying their hand (foot?) at Aussir
rules footy. All are welcome and should bring as many mates as
they like (septic tanks or aussies, doesn 't matter). THe more
Thanks for the page, Dags, me an my aussie mates here in nashville
couldnt live without it.
