A few words on some Life Members that I can remember! All Life members were stalwarts of the club , assisting pre games with the setting up the tent ( to sell grog when we had no clubhouse ) . When I joined the club in 1973 , the club was an amateur club playing in a partly Professional competition . the club had a great social life , however emphasis was on playing hard , training hard ( if possible ) and drinking / socialising hard ! All members put in 100% for the club on the field , most achieving Best & Fairest award some year(s) and Loved their Footy!!
I actually introduced “Crystal” to UQAFC ( work associates ) . Crystal played many games for Uni and went on to become the President of the club .
He was another stalwart of the club and a great Socialite and party goer ! He hated a beer on a cold day or anytime , Not ! He was a comedian and loved to have fun and treated footy the same way. He put a lot of effort in to the club , and I believe saved it from collapse after my time ! Crystal was Captain of the Reserves and always put the club first.
