Pem­ber­ton strikes again in AFL comp

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News - Tari Jef­fers

The 2018 AFL grand fi­nal is yet to be de­cided, but one Pem­ber­ton man is al­ready a winner.

The West Aus­tralian Re­gional News­pa­pers’ an­nual com­pe­ti­tion to win two tick­ets to the AFL grand fi­nal was won by fa­ther of four Roy Ge­orge.

His prize in­cludes re­turn flights to Mel­bourne, three nights ac­com­mo­da­tion at Ibis Mel­bourne Ho­tel, air­port trans­fers and two re­served seats at the grand fi­nal on Septem­ber 29.

As part of the com­pe­ti­tion at any par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­ness, en­trants put their names and phone num­bers on their re­ceipts and put it in the draw to win.

Mr Ge­orge’s win­ning pur­chase of choco­lates and a cof­fee was made at Pem­ber­ton Gen­eral Store.

This is the sec­ond time Pem­ber­ton Gen­eral Store has had the win­ning docket.

Mr Ge­orge said he was look­ing for­ward to trav­el­ling to Mel­bourne for the grand fi­nal.

“It will be a nice lit­tle hol­i­day in a few weeks,” he said. “Eagles ver­sus Rich­mond would be a good grand fi­nal to see.

“Thank you to the West Aus­tralian Re­gional News­pa­per group for hold­ing the com­pe­ti­tion and thanks to Lionel and Sheree at the Pem­ber­ton Gen­eral Store for tak­ing part.”

Pem­ber­ton Gen­eral Store owner Lionel Lee con­grat­u­lated Mr Ge­orge on his win.

“This is the sec­ond time we’ve taken part in the com­pe­ti­tion and the sec­ond time we’ve won,” he said.

“We get lots of lit­tle sales, which gen­er­ates a lot of dock­ets.”
