The Tokyo Goannas held their annual Champagne AFL Grand Final Breakfast at Paddy Foleys Sports Bar in Roppongi. It was a splendid day with around 60 people turning up for a full cooked Aussie breakfast, champagne on arrival, 500 yen crown lagers & VB, a footy quiz and raffle – all before bounce down of the 2008 AFL GF.
By the time the bar opened to the public it was a mad house, and despite a close call with the lights going out for 20 minutes, everything went according to plan. The Goannas were in fine form with many current and past members attending the event. The GF itself was a fantastic spectacle and well done to the Hawks on taking the 2008 flag. As the day progressed, it claimed a few casualties, but the party, dancing, pocket pissing, crowd surfing extended well into the evening and culminated in a shoot out on the bar with 20 very large drinks lined up and slammed by the Goannas members.
A top day/evening and well done to all who participated & contributed.
Special thanks to Mike Huberts for his work in pulling the event together, Dan for arranging the footy quiz and Annmaree for her help with the raffle.
All in all the event raised over $1000 for the club.
Cheers and hope to see one all soon as we enter the business end of the Japan AFL season.
