Port Augusta is brimming with excitement as Adelaide prepares to visit the region for its AFL Community Camp on Monday February 27 and Tuesday February 28.
Just a fortnight after Port Adelaide visited the Riverland region, the Crows – headed by coach Don Pyke and captain Taylor Walker – will travel north to conduct a variety of school visits in the area, as well as attending a Civic Reception on Monday afternoon.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, South Augusta vice president Nick Heron said another major highlight would be the massive Auskick Clinic, involving the majority of the Crows’ squad, to be held on Central Oval from 4.30pm before an autograph signing session at 5.15pm.
In the evening from 6.30pm, a fundraising dinner will be held in the new Central Oval Function Centre, with all money raised to be injected back into the local Spencer Gulf Football League.
Heron said the presence of the Crows would be beneficial for those unable to attend AFL matches at Adelaide Oval on a regular basis as well as for aspiring youngsters wanting to rub shoulders with their heroes.
