john-harms launch2016

Malarkey Publications and The Footy Almanac invite all Drop-kicks, Misfits and Ratbags to huddle at the North Fitzroy Arms this coming Thursday (March 17) to be blessed by bon vivant (second) ruckman and pub philosopher, Percy Jones. You can see from the photo that Perc was a thinker from the start, right from the days when he called Hobart home.


The evening will include:

The Blessing of the 2016 football season.

The launch of the new edition of Play On, John Harms’s celebrated collection.


St Patrick’s Day festivities.


It will feature John Dunne who single-handedly turned the Geelong Cup into an international event, Lofty Longden who made the calling of the quaddie approximate an art form, and Percy Jones who’s lost count of how many premierships he’s played in at Carlton.


Come and enjoy a Guinness or two, sign up for the footy tipping, and the Tip the Top Eight comps, and be blessed. Stay for a countery.

6-7.30pm (and kick on), Thursday, March 17, North Fitzroy Arms Hotel, corner of Reid and Rae Streets, North Fitzroy.

Play On is available now. To purchase a copy:
