Zeb Taylor was "always one for a good time" and the Tamworth Kangaroos will be out to do just that as they remember the former president this weekend.
The Kangaroos will hold the Zeb Taylor Memorial Round in their home clash against the Gunnedah Bulldogs on Saturday.
Club president Brett Douglas said they wanted the day to reflect the good mate they lost last year.
"He was always one for a good time and he always made people feel most welcome," Douglas said.
"He wouldn't want it to be a sombre affair. We're celebrating what he brought to footy and his life."
The Kangaroos will don black armbands and run out to the Hawks' theme in honour of Taylor's love of the Hawthorn side.
They will also be making a special presentation in between the women's and men's matches to Taylor's wife and daughter.
"Kristy and Asta are coming down and doing the coin toss and we're going to present a jumper for Asta in his [Taylor] playing number - number 33," Douglas said.
That playing number would also be stored away for a while.
"We've decided, not to retire it, but no one is going to put it on for a few years," Douglas said.
"Down the line, if that number's special to someone then they can wear the 33 but not for a couple years. That's in remembrance of him."
There will be three matches on the day with 14s, women and men all taking on Gunnedah. Douglas expected some good games.
"They're a hard team to beat and we've had good tussles all year," he said of the men's clash.
"You can't write them off, they'll keep coming at us and it'll be a tough battle both ways.
"The Gunnedah girls are due for a loss hopefully. The Swans girls got very close.
"The girls are improving and it'll be a good battle. They've [Gunnedah] set the bar pretty high this year."
The men's side is coming off a 10-point loss to New England where they celebrated Luke Robinson's 150th game.
Robinson has been at the club since 2011, Douglas said, and has been a "good team man" the whole way through.
"He hurt his knee in the second game of the year when he was only a couple away so when he got the chance he grabbed it," Douglas said.
"I think he's aiming for 200 now. He had a good game, actually."
Douglas added: "He's won plenty of awards on the way through, very reliable and always a consistent player.
"He's one of those players you know is always going to give his best."
