After five premierships and eight grand-final appearances in the past nine years, the big question facing Kalkee in Horsham district league this year is can they go to the well one last time?
The big ask comes on the back of veterans whose football careers are in their twilight.
Steve Schultz, Josh Mibus and Tim Wade remain a formidable trio capable of mixing it with the best in the competition.
But the depth of recent years will be tested this season.

Steve Schultz might play as a permanent forward and become one of the leading goal-kickers in the competition.
Also leaving the plains are Shaun Gilbert, Ben Hobbs and Nick Thomson.
The loss of these five players will give plenty of others on the periphery in the past a chance to cement a spot in the side.
Matt Nield had a break-out season last year.
