Hong Kong, Here I Kome!

 (2 Huynh Thuc Khang, D1) has teamed up with the Vietnam Swans to offer one lucky person at Saturday’s AFL Grand Final Party in HCMC a free return air ticket to Hong Kong!

If that doesn’t take your fancy, how about a Sydney Swans jumper signed by the team?

Or a West Coast jumper signed by Daniel Kerr?

Or a Carlton jumper signed by Judd and Fevolaaaaaaa…

Or a St Kilda jumper signed by most of the team?

Miss Australia autographs the Vietnam Swans' footy

Still not good enough? How about a Tommy Sherrin signed by Miss Australia? I’m getting the goose bumps again…

Monster prizes. Monster raffles. Monster competitions. Monster value with tickets at just 500,000VND. They’re available from Bar No. 5 (43 Mac Dinh Chi Street , D3),  or Phil Johns on 0903 012 159. Book before Saturday.

Farewell to Micky Francis’ Mum

Posted by hanoiswans on September 24, 2008

Micky Francis and wife Yen and family have just returned to Australia after his Mum finally succumbed to a long illness.

Mick, an institution in Hanoi, continues to play a key role in resurrecting and building footy in Hanoi and across Vietnam as a going concern. He is also an institution at the Grand Final event in Hanoi which will have to kick on this year without him behind the microphone.

The growing family of Vietnam Swans in Vietnam and far flung corners of the world send our deepest sympathies to Mick and his family during this difficult time. Good luck with it all back in Australia, Mick.

The Vietnam Swans salute you today and on Saturday, in Hanoi and Saigon, we will toast you during our Grand Final events.

We’ll see you soon Big Fella.

Phil Johns, National President
