Hundreds of emails, a city canvassed by fliers, Craigslist posts, Myspace bulletins, Facebook notes, rugby website announcements, countless phone calls, pleas to athletic friends, searches for local Australians, help requested from Nationals, six weeks of training, and dozens of post-practice beers have led to one dream becoming a reality; the Columbus Australian Rules Football Club.

From meager beginnings the team has come a long way in a short time. Two Cincinnati Dockers players began kicking around in Columbus, which led to recruiting interested in friends and four guys at their first practice. Practice attendance has jumped regularly to 10-15 players, which as allowed them to have weekly scrimmages. They�ve even scheduled upcoming games against both Cincinnati and Louisville.
