That lovable rogue, Geoff Harvey, has passed away. An “Eastwood tragic”, Geoff was Secretary of the Club in the early seventies. Living at Epping with wife Penny, he opened a music store at Carlingford where the sales pitch was “a can of ale with every sale”.
At Eastwood, he appointed himself captain, coach and sole selector of the “ Old Frothonians”, the forerunner of the “Eastwood Charcoals”, where half time refreshment consisted of port wine served by a waiter.
He also wrote the words to the Club song, which he proudly played at every opportunity. He holds the dubious distinction of being the only committeeman suspended for a time by the Club for running naked through the clubhouse in front of the lady bowlers.
He will always be remembered whenever “Those Magnificent Men” is sung.
