Mullets, a front-end loader carrying injured players, and people with nicknames like “Fluffy”, “Rosie”, “Boof”, and “Seacat” taking on all comers — and the day ends in a draw, no matter what the score. That’s what spectators and players can expect tomorrow, along with some family fun, if the Batavia Mariners’ annual AFL Masters carnival runs true to form. Mariner Brad “Fluffy” Fehlauer said the club considered the day as much about friends and family as it was about footy, and saw it as a way to connect with the community. “It’s competitive football, but we aren’t playing for sheep stations or a premiership,” Fehlauer said. “We play for kicks and the camaraderie over a few beers with men that still like to kick a footy and socialise in a family-friendly club environment. “The kids love it. “They all get amongst it and run water and work in the canteens and have the activities at half-time.” He said the canteen would be offering $15 meals for adults, with children eating for free, and there would be prizes to be raffled off. A Perth all-stars side will be among the four teams playing at the carnival. “We usually get a pretty good spread of sides,” Fehlauer said. “You’ve got the night-time with the meals and raffles and entertainment — there’s something for everyone, really. “It brings a lot of joy to people and puts some money into the community.” Fehlauer said the Mariners welcomed all levels of ability, and people who were new to town often made connections at the club. They train on Tuesdays at 5.30pm at GBSC Sports Park, where tomorrow’s games kick off at 2pm.
