More than 180 people have answered the call to celebrate the Beechwood football club's 100-year reunion this weekend.

It will mark an impressive century of competition in the Hastings League.

The fun starts on Friday night at the Beechwood Hotel with a meet and greet from 6.30pm. Everyone will get a package of a shirt, stubby holder, reunion booklet and wristbands to get them into all the functions.

The packages will be available at an 11am brunch at the football club on Saturday morning.That will be followed by a ladies game at 12.30am and then the men's game, against the Comboyne Tigers, beginning at 2pm.

After that, it's back to the Beechwood Hotel for a short while, and then there's a dinner in the Wauchope RSL Club from 6.30pm.

There's been a great response. 180 people have already bought tickets for the reunion.
