Richmond vs Geelong Cats – Round 5 – MCG – Saturday 2 May 2015

Hi Cat Fans,
Well, we ended our early run of games down at Kardinia Park with a disappointing loss to North Melbourne to make it 1 and 3. The fade out was a worry after such a great start, but we have to regroup and go again this week against the struggling Tigers. We’ve been there before – remember? In 2007 we had a worrying loss to the Roos in Geelong around the same time of that season which was followed with a 157 point win over Richmond the next round …. so every cloud etc.
We’re back at our regular home at OP’s Tavern this week for the early clash with Richmond. As we know, OP’s has a great range of food and drink available, with the game on the big screen and other facilities that are perfect for the whole family. This week’s game has an early start – 11:45AM WA/Perth time, so come down and enjoy lunch from OP’s exciting menu. We’ll be selling raffle tickets for the 2015 signed team guernsey and the winner will be drawn at OP’s during the final home game of the regular season. So look out for that this Saturday and every Perth Cats gathering throughout the season.
We will also be having our usual function before the West Coast Eagles game on Sunday May 31 from 11.30am at OP’s. There will be guest speakers from the club, both past and present; plus we can already confirm that Steve Hawke, author of an excellent biography on Polly Farmer and son of former PM Bob, will be speaking about the legendary ruckman on the day.  There will also be plenty for the kids, a raffle and the usual terrific meal, in what is the biggest event on the Perth Cats’ calendar. Ticket and booking info for the function and the game, as well as our special guests; will be announced in an email in the very near future.The club will also be holding a Fan Appreciation Day in Perth on May 30 but the exact details have not been confirmed by the club just yet. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know as soon we can. Thanks for the continued support of the Perth Cats and keep the faith.
