On Sunday April 6th the Tokyo Goannas successfully held their annual Season Launch Party at our fantastic sponsor pub Hobgoblins in Roppongi.
The day started out with a big training session down by the river in Futakotamagawa. A solid group of players, including a few new faces, braved the less than ideal weather to hone their skills in preparation for the upcoming season just weeks away.
After the tough hit out Goannas had worked up quite the appetite and a thirst to match, so it was down to Hobgoblins for the main event. About 40 people including players new and old, supporters, and their families came down to enjoy the festivities. With a BBQ out the front, the sausages were selling like…well, sausages! The drinks were cold and the atmosphere was electric with a tight game of AFL on the big screen taking it up a notch, while the result made at least one Goanna a very happy man.
The day was a huge success and a great opportunity for the Goannas community to get together and get behind the team as they prepare for another big season in the JAFL. We would like to give a big thanks to all those that took the time to come down on the day, and to those that couldn’t make it, don’t despair. The season is just getting started! Go ‘annas!
