Hell-bent Bombers

ESSENDON appears hell-bent on making it up to the community after its NAB Cup fiasco this year, booking a function in Wangaratta next year.

The Bombers have booked an event at the Gateway on Thursday, February 28, to go with a preseason clash against Richmond at the Norm Minns Oval and visits to Myrtleford, Beechworth and Bright as part of their community camp.

The entire Bombers playing list and coaching staff will attend the function, with patrons to be seated with players, staff and officials.

Booking is essential with tickets $75, including a two-course meal.

Essendon, which forfeited its NAB Cup match against St Kilda this year after failing to land its chartered planes in Wangaratta, play the Tigers on Saturday, March 2.
