Whats App Group
The Cruising Committee is setting up a What’sApp Group to enable members to let everyone know if they have a plan to cruise and would like some company, even if it’s a day outing and general communications.
It requires you to download the App to your phone. You need to let me know if you’d like to join, text is fine, and I’ll join you up. It’s opt in so not all CG members will elect to join.
I use WhatsApp for a number of groups but I don’t have alerts activated as a conversation I’m not involved it means lots of dings I don’t need to hear, but I do check regularly. I recommend this but you might want to be alerted.

Hi everyone,
In the week preceding this round, there was much commentary in the media about the fact that the match-ups were the 'closest' ever for a home-away round of AFL in the 18-team era. This was a reference to the fact that we had first on the ladder playing second, third playing fifth, fourth playing sixth and seventh playing eighth - a total differential of only 19 when all 9 matches were considered. It looked like we might have mostly close games this week but unfortunately, that is not what happened!
On the field: in the words of a friend who is a keen Demons' fan, Melbourne decided to adopt 'Plan A' this week and give their opponents a bit of a start, before completely running over the top of them! That is how the game unfolded on Thursday night - after a good first quarter saw Brisbane lead by 13 points, the Lions completely faded after that and the Dees romped back to form, recording a decisive 64-point victory. Their win was a good percentage booster and puts them a game clear at the top of the ladder. Similarly, the Freo vs Carlton match at Marvel Stadium ended up being surprisingly one-sided - the Blues showed some encouraging form to record a much-needed 31-point win. Carlton has some tough games ahead and will need to keep improving.
The most exciting game this week involving top 8 sides saw Geelong stage a stirring late rally to beat Richmond by 3 points at the MCG. For the first quarter and a half, the Cats dictated play and led at one point by 34 points before the Tigers fought their way back into the game. In a thrilling second half, Richmond moved to a 17-point lead in the final term before the Cats hit back. Geelong's narrow win moves them up to second on the ladder, while Richmond drops to 9th. Sydney scored a decisive 51-point over visiting St Kilda, moving the Swans up to 6th and dropping the Saints to 10th. The Bulldogs moved back into the top 8 this round with a 7-goal win over Hawthorn, while Collingwood made it 5 straight wins today, withstanding a late rally by GWS. The Magpies have a favourable schedule over the next few weeks and currently sit in 7th position.
In other games, West Coast surprised Essendon to record a 10-point victory at Optus Stadium. The victory ended their longest ever losing streak and they are off the bottom of the ladder. Adelaide had a comfortable 57-point victory over North Melbourne in Launceston today. The final game of this round was also a thriller and saw Port Adelaide record a slender 2-point victory over the visiting Gold Coast Suns.
Tipping: congratulations to this week's top tipsters, namely, John Naughton, RoyBoys12, Lambo73, Smalldog, Captain Awesome, VinandVang, and Pauline Dallimore, all of whom managed 8 winners. Well done! Naughton's great score has seen him take over the top spot on our ladder from Kylie1004 - both are on 90 total tips but John has the better margin. There are lots of other tipsters sitting just off the pace - here is our leaderboard.
Ladder Leaders
John Naughton 90 (373)
