According to the ol' terms and conditions on the membership site the cut off was 5pm today. Basically says any members signed up after that time wont be counted officially by the AFL and the member wont have priority access to finals tickets.

I was about to sign up to the 3 game membership tonight but now haven't because of that. The clubs reminder email which they only sent yesterday didn't reference that info. I've replied and just suggested in the future that would be useful to make known in the reminder emails (nothing angsty, it was my fault I was lazy and left it too late).

I was a 10 year consecutive 11 game member too. Rather ironic that the entire 10 years I was a consecutive member (I have been one before many times though) we have not once made finals, the year I'm not a member and not attending games, we will probably make the finals. You can all thank me later!

Wouldn't you still be able to sign up to an armchair membership to keep your consecutive years going?

Pretty ordinary that the club doesnt specify a cut off date.

I will be calling them tomorrow to confirm my consecutive years are counted, it is my fault for leaving so long but i would think that signing up as a member before the end of the year would count.

Edit: i just twigged that you were specifically talking about finals tickets.

Correction on this, the club have now told me that members can still sign up as a 3 game (or I assume an 11 game general) member up until Friday and still get member access to pre-sale finals tickets (weeks 1-3 I think). But the member numbers wont be counted in the official AFL stats.

I also believe that existing members who did not renew for this year can actually buy a 3 game membership for just $10 if they agree to also buy one next year (though I couldn't find this on the website but I was told there was a link from instagram or some such thing, I don't know just call the club I guess). But I was happy enough to just renew to at the standard price.

How this hasn’t yet been renamed Harmes paint is beyond me. Sorry I’m drunk and happy!
These days I honestly read it as Harmes Paint. My inner workings have already rebranded.

Mind you someone at work was telling a dull story about the time way back that they went to that ABBA revival thing called Bjorn Again - and I realised that I was listening with interest. Of course I realised I was tuning in because I was hearing “Gawn Again”. I might be going mad.

Oh man! Just spent $140 buying an armchair membership for me and my dad a few weeks back, i would have snapped up the $10 tickets anand signed up for next year on the spot.

Given we’ve now achieved more than expected performance wise with hoefully more to come and had 2 90000+ Finals crowds what do we think we can get to next year?

After this year assuming we don't have another bad start to the year 50k+ should be the goal in 2019.

Anyone get their letter on entering the Grand Final ticket ballot? My old man got one but I didn’t, my good mate also didn’t receive one.

My old man reckons we have to enter the ballot this Wednesday, just want to confirm with others that it is this Wednesday as I didn’t get a letter.

Priority 1 appears to be those with guaranteed GF purchase rights. I've no idea what constitutes priority 2 or 3 though, cannot find that info anywhere on the website, if anyone has found it please link
