Are YOU a keen Bluebagger?

Have you ever had the urge to be a football writer or researcher ?

Well, here’s your chance to have a crack at it!

The Blueseum is looking for some additional help in 2019 – particularly with Game and Player Reviews. Open tasks are on the Task List.

Since 2006, this website has been produced by a dedicated group of volunteers who spend their free time delving into and recording the history of the Carlton Football Club. The site is based on the wiki concept (think of wikipedia) where registered users are able to create and edit content independently.

Therefore, everyone interested is cordially invited to join us. No experience is necessary, because you’ll be guided every step of the way and you will be making a real contribution to your club.

So come on, why wait ?
