Hello all, come from near Young in NSW, been in WA since Feb '08. Currently in Kambalda about to move back to Kal. I think I may be the only Tiger in Kambalda...

I am also a tigers fan who lives in Kal. My 3 kids are all huge fans as well. I wish they would play games in Perth cause I would def go to them.

Hi Sarah & BBTiger - There are a few Tiger fans in Kalgoorlie that I know. If you ever get to Hannan's Boulevard pop in and say hello at Zach-Harry's. I'm the Tiger fan, the husband is a Dragon. Also, you'll find Tiger fans at the Wilson Street Deli.

The atmosphere at the Saints-Eels trial at ME Bank this year was rank. And i definitely won't pay to watch Souths when they play the Storm in a few weeks.

thankfully the Tigers are playing so crap. I dont feel like i'm missing much!
why have i missed this thread for so long?
anyway, i think to be into league over here you need a new/qld influence. my dad grew up in lidbcombe or burulla (?) and played reggies for wests. he was always a wests fan and I'm not sure why, but when i was about 10 (1982) i chose the tigers and have loved them ever since.

so it was awesome when our two teams merged!

@larrycorowa. if you were in the northern suburbs there is probably a good chance the guy who yelled out of his car to you was me!!! (good looking guy, awesome car... :lol: )

Turnstyle - that would be 'Berala' where your dad grew up. not far from Lidcombe.

seriously though everyone, its not hard to get something organised locally if we wanted to. I have managed it with a British soccer team i support. Me and one other guy started a Perth supporters club two years ago and we now get 200 people to watch games at a pub every saturday night.

We can similarly build it up with a little effort here. Firstly there are more Tigers supporters out there than you would expect. Secondly we don't need to spend money. Facebook and Word of Mouth are all we need to spread the word.

We just need a venue which isn't hard, but the hardest part will be working out a way to show the games live in lieu of the pathetic way we get treated by Nine and Foxtel.

I'd be happy to set up the Facebook page and I could probably get a couple of people involved.

Don't know where we would meet up and stuff, but I guess we can sort that out later.

You need someone with special tv reception to get the games live.

Tigers and Joondalup Giants fan, definitely liking the sounds of the supporters group though. Everyone else in my family supports the Storm, so they've been lucky enough to catch a few of their games over here, but I'd definitely jump at the chance to see the mighty Tiges. Not sure how much help a 17 year old can be, but I'll stick my hand up when needed!

What is the address?

We had a nice night at the shop - a couple of Tigers fans stopped by. Bit tense behind the counter though when the Tigers took the lead! We had both the Tigers and Dragons flags draped along the cold bar :supporter: Husband is still grumpy this morning. :roll

ok, let's get things under way.

I recommend that everyone gets down to the bel Eyre on Friday night then. I would normally join you, though its my wedding anniversary and my wife will kill me if i tried to skip that!

I will definitely meet you all the following week against the Storm though

I might have to tell my dad. He lives in Mundaring and just tried to get foxtel hooked up but because of the trees cant get it. He hasnt seen a game all season. If I lived in perth I would def come down and watch.
Wish the game was showed live in Kal somewhere, there is a few supporters here.
