22 Apr GEELONG WEST GIANTS – WEST OVAL – HOME GAME THIS WEEKEND
Just a quick email in relation to our first home game at West Oval this weekend.
Opposition ‘away’ rooms are at the Northern end of the building – both Grovedale and Bell Post Hill will have separate changerooms (please make sure only players, coaches and support staff are in the changerooms)
The main pedestrian entry point is between the new building and grandstand on Weddell Road or via the Netball court gates off Church Street
Entry is free for members of Grovedale, Bell Post Hill and the Giants. It is a $5 entry free for non-members
Parking – opposition teams are able to use the car park ($5 fee). There is no pedestrian traffic through the carpark gate
There will be a couple of car parks reserved for trainers (so they don’t have to carry their gear too far)
Coach’s boxes – you are more than welcome to use these on the first floor; however we don’t have them equipped with communication devices yet and the windows do not slide open
We will be holding a smoking ceremony prior to the GDFNL Senior game (around 5.50pm)
We will also be holding a minute silence prior to both Senior games (following the smoking ceremony for GDFNL) for our past players & life members who have passed away over the last 18 months.
As previously mentioned, the Giants are no longer holding half time luncheons (President’s lunches) on game days. Instead, we invite both your netball and football players, coaches, volunteers and supporters in to our clubrooms following each Senior game so we can welcome your club to West Oval. Due to COVID restrictions, there is a limit on the number of people who can be in the clubrooms at the one time.
Finally, a quick reminder of times for the football games:
GDFNL Reserves – 4.00pm
GDFNL Seniors – 6.10pm
We look forward to hosting both teams this weekend and hope the weather is kind to us. See you all on Saturday.
