THE Rochester and Echuca communities got a taste of Tigerland on Monday and Tuesday, when players from the Richmond (Tigers) Football Club took some time out to visit the townships as part of their AFL Community Camp visit.
The players arrived on Monday to a civic reception at Rochester Football Club before heading out to local schools and health care facilities in Rochester for the afternoon.
Players and coaching staff then traveled to Echuca for more community based visits before a huge meet and greet opportunity at Echuca College for young fans to seek autographs and to meet the players.
At the same time as the players mingled at Echuca College, Richmond’s coaches ran a training session with the Tatura Milk AFL Goulburn Murray Academy at Victoria Park, Echuca.
One of the big highlights of the two day camp was a dinner event with the Richmond players, coaches and staff on Monday night at the Moama Bowling Club which offered fans the opportunity to dine and interact in a social, relaxed and fun environment.
