|A regular night at the Betoota RSL took an exciting turn for local man Joseph Anders on the weekend as lax security allowed him into an area normally off-limits to all but the upper echelons of society’s elite.|
|“As I’m walking back from the TAB I saw the back entrance to the VIP Room was totally unguarded!” claimed Joseph, who’s account of the night’s events has yet to be verified. |
“I knew this could be my one and only chance to rub shoulders with the hoi polloi, so I quickly checked no-one was looking and then just ducked inside.
I didn’t see any VIPs I recognised, but I was trying not to stare; to keep a low profile you know.
Last thing I want is for one of the celebrities to spot me and call security so I just sat down at one of the pokies and put $20 in.
Just then this girl with a tray walked past and asked if she could take my empty glass and I knew my cover had been blown.
I just mumbled something and quickly walked out.
But still, it was an amazing experience; my mates couldn’t believe it. The
carpet was so colourful and there was even a plate of free Mentos.
Mum reckons I should write a book about it or something but I dunno. I just wish I had been able to take some photos”.
An unidentified spokesperson for the Betoota RSL said they were not authorised to discuss specific security matters or the complimentary Mentos policy.
