Rob Gersch has nearly seen it all in his time at the Nhill and District Sporting Club.
As a former president, player and committee member the stalwart has lived through the Tigers' best and worst.
One of Gersch's fondest memories is of his part in Nhill's 1969 premiership team; a side he recalled as one of the best ever to represent the club.
"I've been with the club for over 60 years, and that side is probably one of the best I've ever seen in the Wimmera league in my time," he said.
After a brief stumble in the opening round, Nhill coasted through the 1969 season before dispatching Stawell in the final by 13 points.
"I played a few games that year, but I wasn't good enough to be in that grand final side," Gersch said.
"I played that first game against Horsham, which we lost, then we turned around and won the next 19 on the trot and broke the (then) Wimmera league record in doing that.
"It was just a collection of good players coming together at the right time."
Gersch played a hand in organising the 50-year reunion of Nhill's record-breaking team that takes place this weekend.
"I've been around the club my whole life. I've played, been a president and done nearly everything," he said. "It was just one of those things. I'm not on the committee this year, but I just said with my experience and background I'd be happy to do it."
Nhill's 1969 premiership winning under-16 side will also reunite on Saturday.
'When you're up against the Horshams and the Ararats as a small town, and you win with your juniors; it's certainly a big achievement," Gersch said.
The returning Nhill players will reminisce at a luncheon before the present-day Tigers take to the field against the Horsham Saints.
