OUR AFLW TIPPING RESULTS ARE IN!!!
Congratulations to Chugga who came out a clear winner and could probably do with the dough after breaking his collarbone a few weeks back. Second place went to the Tav's own boss man Marki - he broke from the pack in the second to last week with a game-changing perfect round. And in another coup for the Tav, bartender Ro couldn't pick a winner but tipped the full fixture to take home the wooden spoon. Thanks to all who took part. Stay tuned to hear about what we'll be doing for the Grand Final and come in from tomorrow to sign up to our tipping comp for the men's game when we'll be tipping the crow-eaters league - the SANFL!

FOUND..

Music makes us happy too, which is why it's sad that someone left this on the 86 tram this arvo. Does anyone know the owner? We also found a ring in the beergarden today after the amazing Georgia Knight & Roller One show yesterday.... If you can describe the ring or the contents of the purse they're yours. If you collect them tonight after 8pm you'll also get to "Enjoy Your Stay" and hear Snowy's gig with Elsie's Angels. Now that'd make anyone happy!
