We then jumped back on the buses with Ben leading us all to the WACA where we joined 6,000 West Australians on the Long Walk to Optus stadium. This walk is one of great importance and has a long history in Melbourne and occurs each year prior to the Dreamtime at the G game.
We then enjoyed a thrilling game at Optus where Essendon challenged in the final term only to have Richmond run away clear winners. It was a highlight to all who attended.
Sunday and the big game was upon us.
With some rain about it started off with a few warm ups and the important kids vs parents game. A few highlights were on show but as usual the kid prevailed with the parents failing to kick a goal in the wet conditions.
Then we headed to the big game and got underway. The first quarter honors were with Dalkeith Nedlands but there after it was one way traffic with Wiluna running out comfortable winners Wiluna - 11.11 77 def DN 6.9 45 turning the tables from the 2020 encounter.
Half time saw the longest kick and sprint competitions. The first kick had the win with other competitors trying torps which failed to deliver.
We also had channel 7 news come down and film the game with Adrian Barrich giving the event a great plug as part of his sports report - fun fact his son participated in a past Wiluna game which shows its long and proud history.
It was then time to reflect on the game and celebrate those who demonstrated great skill and great spirit.
The game is the main highlight on both team's calendars each year and the spirit of how the game was played was just awesome seeing kids as young as 6 or 7 challenging 15/16 year olds and everyone looking out for each other.
Well done to all who participated and cant wait to come up to Wiluna next year.
