Many young Carlton fans spend their spare time running around their backyard pretending to kick the ball to AFL stars Chris Judd or Marc Murphy.
That dream will become a reality for one lucky Carlton supporter next month.
With the Blues spending two days in Bendigo on February 7 and 8 as part of the AFL Community Camps, one Bendigo Advertiser reader can win the opportunity to host Judd, Murphy and one other Carlton player for breakfast and a game of kick-to-kick.
The Carlton stars will visit the competition winner’s backyard on Friday morning, February 8.
To enter the competition all you have to do is fill in the coupon which will be published regularly in the printed edition of the Bendigo Advertiser from Monday.
Entrants must be primary school aged and live within 15 kilometres of Bendigo.
The winner will be drawn at Carlton’s super clinic at the QEO on the evening of February 7.
The super clinic, which is free for children aged 5 to12, is the highlight of day one of the Blues’ camp.
Carlton’s senior list will visit schools, hospitals and community groups around Bendigo before hosting the clinic.
The players will then attend a dinner and sportsmen’s night at the All Seasons.
Individual tickets can be purchased or Carlton fans have the option of purchasing a table and sitting with the Carlton player of their choice.
On Friday, February 8, the Blues will have a players’ breakfast with AFL school ambassadors before conducting more school and hospital visits. Carlton chief executive Greg Swann and Chris Judd will also host a business and administrators lunch at the All Seasons on the Friday.
