The community cup is true to to its name, its a great day out for anyone in the community. Around 10,000 Families, music lovers, footy fans or just those who want a good excuse to knock back a few coldies on a Sunday attended the community cup . If you went with the family at the back of the field was a tent for the kiddies to sit down and draw, while, im sure dad could join the queue for a beer. They certainly didn’t forget mans best friend either by providing a dog drink station, although just a few meters away I saw a muddy pooch was already enjoying his puddle drink instead.At $5 a head entry fee it was also great value to enter and enjoy the match and music for an entire day.
Kick starting onstage were syn free kick winners Money for rope then Little Freddie & the pops and The blackeyed susans. While they were onstage the Espy Rockdogs and the Megahertz were arriving in the change rooms ,while the lovely cheerleaders were nearby practicing their moves. The crowd was starting to get bigger but everyone was in great spirits relaxed and rather laid back while enjoying the music. The sun was shining and the weather looking great ,but the ground was starting to get pounded into a muddy pulp before the game had even kicked off.
The teams ran onto the field amongst their mascots of hot cheerlearders in fishnet stockings, a gorilla and tyranny cheer squad. Before the game the major had a coin toss followed by a minute silence.
Half time and a highlight of the day was the performance from the living end complete with the tranny cheer squad for the Rockdogs on stage in a hilarious show of men dancing on stage while playing Chris cheeny does his infamous guitar playing solo with a beer bottle. Although normally the centre of attention at this part of the show he was almost upstaged by men dressed in drag to steel the show for a few laughes. Chris cheeny totally lost his train of thought while being distracted on stage by the tyranny’s flashing their goods and he proclaimed in jest at the end of the piece to Scotty that the blonde one was his backstage after the show. The living end set played as How do we know, Second solution, Raise the alarm, Safe European, Tommy gun, Roll on, White noise, E boggie, London c .The theme of the day was the Clash and each band played a song from the Clash.
The match itself between the megahertz and the Rock dogs should be memorable with the 1 point win by DJ Stu Farrell kicking a goal on the siren to give his team a memorable win in only a few seconds to spare. Est in 1993 the community cup is a charitable event , raising funds for Reclink an organization that helps those that are most vulnerable ,isolated people - those experiencing mental illness, disability, homelessness, substance abuse, addictions, and social and economic hardship. .The past winners list since 2001 read as
2001 megahertz 2002 Rockdogs 2003 megahertz 2004 Rockdogs 2005 Mgahertz 2006 tied
2007 Rockdogs 2008 no match 2009 Rockdogs 2010 Megahertz.
Nick Barker & The Reptiles ended the day post match in full form .After the event most of the team members headed over to the ripon lea mansion for more post match relaxation and party drinks.
