The footy tipping competition at Arcare Hillside, one of our aged care residences in Sydenham, is a ladies game – over the last ten years, the either Lorna or Marion have won the top prize. This year it was Lorna who came first, with Marion coming second. However, it was touch and go for a while with an unexpected entrant, Ann.
Ann is only new to Arcare Hillside, but gave the ladies a run for their money this year, scoring well and even coming third out of the whole group. Having a new passionate footy supporter, and competitor, in their midst allowed for lively and (sometimes) heated discussions every Monday, as they discussed the weekends matches. It will be interesting to see how the season unfolds next year.
