Guelph to Host OAFL Double Header

August 21st sees the OAFL holding their first ever double header in Guelph, Ontario.  The  Broadview Hawks will take on the Guelph Gargoyles followed by the Etobicoke Kangaroos taking on the Hamilton Wildcats.

The Guelph Gargoyles will be holding some extra events during the day to promote Aussie Rules and Football in Guelph. The game day is also being promoted with the local media to maximize exposure in the area and we hope to have a good crowd in attendance.

There will be an onsite BBQ with Aussie Burgers, Hot Dogs & beverages available during the entire day beginning at 12pm when the Gargoyles/Broadview game kicks off.

After the conclusion of both games there will be a party at the Wellington Brewery in Guelph with all welcome to attend.
