Rose City residents flip out for round of two-up

IN TRUE Aussie style, it was schooners in hand and wallets at the ready as lads and ladies got in on the two-up action at the Warwick RSL.

Club member and ringkeeper Michael Litchfield said the traditional game was one that got the oldies and youngsters in together to have a flutter and some fun on Anzac Day.

"It's the only time of year we can play it," Mr Litchfield said.

"The diggers played it in the war and so it's good to see the young ones involved."

In his role as ringkeeper, Mr Litchfield ensures the play goes ahead legitimately.

"I control what's going on so make sure the coins stay in the ring and make sure they flip the coins above their head," he said.

When players step into the circle they are asked to make a donation towards the RSL.

"Last year the donations went towards troop parcels we sent overseas, but we will use this money for the veterans in nursing homes," he said.
