We are back with local games of Australian Rules Football, or 'footy' as we just call it. Come out on the 26th to see Rome play Atlanta Kookaburras and the Birmingham Bushrangers, bring a chair, relax, listen to the game commentary or grab a program to get up to speed with how the game is played. By the end of the day you will be an expert and be able to brag to your friends or maybe you will want to even play this great sport.
Games start just after 2.00pm so don't be late, it is a free event, bring your loudest voices and cheer on your Rome Redbacks the only National traveling USAFL team that is based in a town with less than 40,000 residents. How cool is that?
After the games we adjourn to our favorite watering hole, The River Dog & Paddle Co by the Etowah River in downtown Rome. Join us for a refreshment there too and meet the players and coaches.
Many many thanks to the YMCA of Rome & White County who have been absolutely fantastic in helping us schedule this event. So friendly, so flexible, so professional...we could go on and on. Get invovled in your local Y. They are great.....
