That’s young Col backed up against the club door sucking in a little sunshine rather than listen to the bullshit Yates and Mulhall are participating in and you want to know why? Because Col was always meant to be in the Real Estate business and what better place to start his first million than by charging admittance to the Polio Pit to anyone unwary enough to ask permission get inside and savour the members’ delights without a badge.
Like the out of towner in shades and shorts on his left .. not going to happen without paper says Col, the door is mine and it’s shut.
Over there on Col’s left, the untidy piles of clothing and towels thrown on the ground? That’s theirs, the out-of-towners, inside the luxurious surrounds of the Pit is us. We get the lockers, carpet covered board racks, fully equipped ding repair room and hot showers, the Member’s bar, lunchtime buffet and deep massage on the big days.
Col has been in touch. He has photos of Bob Barrett, Brian Morris, Ross Kelly, Geoff Rule, The Head, John Burgess, Zulu, Wheels, Magoo, Bluey & others.
This is a good thing.
