    Established in 1893 following the discovery of gold in the area Marble Bar is known for miles around for its Misfits and football genii.

    The most famous building in the town is the Ironclad Hotel built in the 1890s, constructed of corrugated Iron, and given the name by American miners who were reminded of the Ironclad ships from the United States. Officially the hotel closed in 2010, this is mostly a licensing issue, why give the gov a percentage of the cut, it’s not like we get a lot of licencing inspectors in Marble Bar.
    The Misfit’s bar remains polished and well watered, the spittoon gleams and the ladies dress in accordance with the heat, making the Public Bar a very well visited place to this day.

    Marble Bar has very hot summers and mild to warm winters. The town set a world record of most consecutive days of maximum temperatures of 37.8 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit) or more, during a period of 160 such days from 31 October 1923 to 7 April 1924.

    The warm winters allow for the perfect combination of football and alcohol.

    Unusually for a remote centre beer is served in shot glasses and whiskey in middies or schooners, innovations like this are not uncommon in Marble Bar.

    Penned in the 1964 after match celebration of the clubs 71st consecutive premiership the team song rings loud and proud, lyrics below:

    Marble Bar Misfit's - Ode to Kicking Butt
    Torn from the heavens, we fall from the sky
    And walk the streets among mortal men
    We drink in shadows, keepers of the flask
    Assimilation is weak, can't hold back the Misfits
    Their blood pours as rain and soon they'll all be done

    Chorus:
    (Whaaoo) Marble Bar Misfits, Drunkards to a man
    (Whaaoo) We'll fight the fight, the Misfits Left & Right
    (Whaaoo) Cazaly's rabid spawn, Football's awful Pride
    (Whaaoo) Marble Bar Misfits, Premiers by Right

    Born & created in the image of a god
    The heavens fall, the saviours have been sent
    The Misfits are here, a mortgage on the cup
    Immortal life is ours, a Misfit's right
    We make the finals and and soon you'll all be done

    Chorus:
    (Whaaoo) Marble Bar Misfits, Drunkards to a man
    (Whaaoo) We'll fight the fight, the Misfits Left & Right
    (Whaaoo) Cazaly's rabid spawn, Football's awful Pride
    (Whaaoo) Marble Bar Misfits, Premiers by Right

    Marble Bar Misfits
    Drink On, Drink On
    Marble Bar Misfits
    They Lost, We Won

    Bereft of ideas since the elevation of the Misfits to the big show, we have decided to steal the bathtub from Port Elizabeth.
    So, please join us in welcoming the new home ground of the Misfits to the ORFFA.

    Hey Len, can someone shoo the kangaroos off the landing strip so we can land this big Fokker?

    Aren't airports meant to have tarmac on them?

    I think I limped over the line to beat you, despite your thorny scout, but it was an insipid performance by both our lots. Misfits will be cutting the players 1/2 time drinks down to a 3 can limit in response.
