From 6pm registration commenced and they came from all over the St. John's Community in their dozens, descending upon St. John's Park no doubt drawn by the waft of BBQ in the air. U6 coach and event maker Stephen McCormack with his team were busy flipping up to 400 burgers to be served throughout the evening.

Once the whistle sounded the stampede to the centre was on and the scramble for sticks got going. Former Club Chairman Luke Roche commented that it was the most fantastic sight he had ever seen during his long association with the club, to watch 300 young gaels stampede the length of the pitch with pure joy on thier faces. It was EGGsactly what the organisers hoped for.
