 On a cold and wet Friday 29th July 2012 night, the boys from Jurassic Park piled into a comfortable 22 seater from Go West for our one and ony bus trip for 2012. Reevesy was at the wheel doing his best for Dry July, we had a Carlton vs Hawks game on Ace’s ipad to watch on the way and life was good. I organised myself next to Squares and with my folder in front of me, asked him if he’d like to ‘run the structures’ with me. After he give me a look that is unique to Stephen, he stopped me in my tracks..”steady on Mick Malthouse, we’re not playing for sheep stations”.

At the half way mark a break-away group decided that having a couple of
quiets before the game might be the go..after all it was Friday night and
the footy was on the big screen (all 15 inches of it). Not on Mick
Malthouse’s watch!! and sanity only just prevailed and the eskies were
slammed shut much to PD and Pearsy’s disgust.

We have never beaten Margs in our short history and suffered a heavy loss at
last years country carnival so travelling down there on a cold and wet night
looking for a win was never going to be a walk in Jurassic Park. By the time
we arrived at the game, the Margs boys were on the ground doing a few run
throughs so there was barely enough time to get changed and for someone to
strap the tail on, before we were into it.

Margs stormed out of the centre and our backline was under the pump from the start. Hutts provided a steady hand on the wheel and by the end of the quarter we started to win possession. Stewy took a good mark in tough conditions and like Stevey J, he played on and hooked a long goal. From that point late in the 2nd quarter we had most of the play with Pears, Kelly, Ogden and Gray providing contests and clean skills. Squares had said a polite “No” to the yellow jumper and was locking it in the forward line when
it came down. In typical Dino spirit, Kingy had decided to have a kick when all those close to him didn’t want him to…lucky for us they’re opinion doesn’t carry much weight (just kidding Janelle), cos guess who kicked the winning goal…and celebrated with an excellent belly slide.

Q1 – Margs 1.0, Dinos 0.1
Q2 – Margs 1.0, Dinos 1.2
Q3 – Margs 0.1, Dinos 0.2
Q4 – Margs 0.2, Dinos 1.1

3pt win to the Dinos 18pt vs 15pts in a shootout!!!

Best: Pears, Squares, Juice, Oggy, Gray

The Margs boys had the kitchen open which made up for the cold showers and after the preso and few beers, it was off to Settlers Tav and then The Nard in Busselton much to Square’s delight (someone should tell him, we’re not playing for sheep stations). We pulled into the Jurassic Park car park at what is becoming the standard for bus trips…2am

Well done to all players and support staff (Hally, Rosie and Whitedog), to
Reevesy the bus driver, and Haousty for donating the bus which allowed us to
give Dry July a $100 donation and make the club $50 after liquid expenses.

The next/last home and away game is against Busselton (who beat us by a
narrow margin last year) at home so as Micky Malthouse would say..”The Earth is slow but the Dino is patient so we’ll get them this year“.

Margaret River Bus Trip

The Dinosaurs hit the road for the one and only bus trip for the 2012 season….watchout Margs cos with a full team and support crew, I got a feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good good night, that’s right tonight’s gonna be a good good night, that’s right that right, I gotta feeling…. High fives to Go West for the use of one of their luxury liners with drop down DVD players and a mini bar in the back.

Congratulations to Jamie Reeves for acting as driver during his punishing annual Dry July sacrifice for charity. The link if you’d like to contribute to this worthy cause is here

Whether its wet or whether is dry
Friday night footy at Margs is nigh
On our bus will be 20 fit Dinos

Match Report v Sharks

Well, our derby rolled into town last week and it was a cracker. A close game and plenty of feeling in the game which culminated in our dapper dan, Shane ‘showtime’ Jones getting issued a red card along with his dance partner.

Rocky Miller was interestingly enough the victim this time round after a late hit from behind which saw his attacker being sent off.

In sad news just to hand, Kingy is walking around in a knee brace and now in danger of missing the rest of 2012.

Dinos 8.8 vs Sharks 6.8 “shield will be engraved next week”
