Huge night! All but one of the 1982 NBL Championship players will be there - will be a fantastic night celebrating a very rich history down at Bearcats' land. Celebrations with Hall of Fame Inductees - Legends, Members and Honour roll - will be a very prestigous night.

Will be a great night - many members wouldn't know a lot of the club history, especially the NBL Championship of '82. I believe the committee has been trawling the archives to come up with many stories, history and names to save it all for future generations. Ex-players flying in from all over Australia. Un-veiling the Championship flags going way back as far as the late 1940's. Can't buy that history!

I guess that "surprise" is out now that the singlets have been 'hung' in preparation for the big night.
Very well deserved.

Making the assumption its Rachel Sporn.

Could have multiple worthy winners though with the historical success of the club.

Ken Cole on TripleM Rush Hour tonight.
Hope they get the facts right that it is West 30th Anniversary of 1982 NBL flag, not 36ers.
Ken will set them straight and look forward to seeing him on Sat night.
Good write-up by Boti in today's paper also.

What a great night!
Over 300 people witnessed the best WABC function yet.
To see some of the old legends such as Mike McKay, Ken Cole, Brad Dalton, Ray wood was inspirational and the speeches by Ken Richardson, Leroy, Al, Rachel, Ted Powell, etc etc were priceless.
The 1982 NBL Premiership team had a 'big' weekend of catch-ups, Hall Of Fame was launched, WABC Premiership Flags unveiled and the playing numbers of Werner Linde and Rachel Sporn were officially retired.
