Yarrawonga Pigeons take on Myrtleford Alpine Saints this Saturday Round 13
There will be plenty on offer at the game this Saturday when we play Myrtleford Alpine Saints.
The canteen will be open for their usual snacks but there will be delicious Egg and Bacon rolls available at the Netball Courts from 9.30am for only $5. Perfect if you are heading up early and don't have time for breakfast before you leave.
Maybe a sausage sizzle is more your thing. There will be a couple of options, basic sausage sizzle for $2.00 each or for something a little more fancy you can have a continental sausage (plain or garlic) supplied by Steve Dale Butchers in a roll with relish or chutney for $4.00. Could be just the thing before that long drive home.
Rug up as it is expected to be cold, if you haven't already call our office for your Pigeon beanie and scarf. The perfect accessory for the Myrtleford game.
See you on Saturday.
