For this years count we ran a player lot auction. 6 groups of players were grouped together and their total votes would be added up to determine the winner. Each of the groups were auctioned off to those in attendence with successful bids from $5 to $65.
Well done to Damien Boland for winning $175 in the Player Lot Auction with an investment of only $15. Bols would like to thank those who spent $65 on the less successful Lots.
Past winner Paul Janes 63 has the most career Medal votes followed by Brett Oliver 60, Clinton Kennon 59 & Bill Leropolous with 50 votes.
