WHAT IS THE PIVOT CLUB?
Founded in 1980, the Pivot Club is the OGFC Supporter's Club (non-playing membership) and is open to all supporters, past players, parents and family. As well as bringing OGFC supporters together, the Pivot Club povides much needed income to the OGFC to offset annual operational expenses. The Pivot Club's significance to the OGFC has grown enormously in recent years with membership surpassing 200 and this season we are looking to better this again.
In 2021 we are again partnering up with the Australian Sporting Foundation (ASF) meaning that our Pivot Members will receive a tax-deductible invoice as part of their membership.
LUNCHEONS & GUEST SPEAKERS
Throughout the year, the OGFC Pivot Club hosts luncheons that our members are invited and encouraged to attend. These lunches have become legendary in their own right with guest speakers in recent years including John Landy, James Sutherland, Gideon Haigh, Kevin Sheedy, Terry Daniher, John Harmes, Mark Neeld, Anthony Ingersen, James McDonald, Frank Costa, Paul Sheahan, Brad Hodge, John Hastings, Jon Anderson, Tom Hawkins, Peta Searle, Greg Davies, Lily Mithen, Hugh Seward, Bill Brownless, Neil Roberts, Lachie Henderson, Nicole Livingstone, Mike Fitzpatrick, Rodney Hogg, Andrew Mackie & Ian Cover.
Due to COVID, we are unable to confirm details of our Pivot & Coaches Corner Luncheons, but it remains our intention to host such gatherings throughout the season (subject to permission). With limited capacity restrictions likely, preference will be given to Members over non-Members.
