Yeah, I might have to go for a couple of he interstate games to watch on the big screens.
wonder if they will still bring out the spinning wheel for raffles like they did sometimes when they televised interstate games at the old Disco room.:D
Boy did i get pissed when i watched the 2008 NAB Cup GF there:drunk::drunk:

I was down at the oval today and went for a walk and a look, seeing as someone was calling the oval sub standard and bagging the club.

The oval has been scarified and i assume fertilized, the correct time of the year to do it, the sprinklers were on as well.

The oval should look very different in about 4 weeks.

Yeah but besides that the place is a shambles...well and the new buildings and shit....and the landscaping...and like the facilities and shit, besides all that it' a disgrace. Finnis probably sacked the greenskeeper and got Hanna Mouncey on the payroll and brought in gay grass that's too busy getting jiggy with other blades of grass to grow.

Yeh they were using a guy on a pushbike with a rope to turn the sprinklers.

Actually the only thing i reckon is crook is the lack of St Kilda branding.

We're nearly there!

Some pics from RSEA yesterday......as it turned out...just missed the battery of cameras from yesterdays Hanner's presser.....was wondering why so many media types were walking around.

The foyer set up is jaw dropping.....the Merch shop was being set up and the finishing touches being done for the Heritage museum cabinets....it all looks absolutely awesome.

I was told the new Café opens for Business next Monday.

The front entrance.

There is a large moving LED screen...…..showing the club colours...….the major sponsors and a welcome to RSEA Park....the Café is in the background.

Thanks again for the pictures Saint Watto ...I was there last Sunday, it is impressive isn't it. I should start taking some pictures myself, can't leave it all up to you! You are doing a ripper job though - especially for those that live interstate.

Thanks Saint Watto , awesome stuff.

Just for clarification; is this new build what we're referring to as Stage 2? And is the "final stage" yet another stage? How many stages in total?

Happy to look it up myself if there is a link that clearly explains the entire project :)

Stage 3 is the waterslide installation.

George....it certainly is very impressive...…..It's been awesome seeing the construction over the last year and a bit.......then posting pics...….the pics let people in the greater Melb Metro area see how it's going,along with people out of Melb….. interstate and overseas fans/members.

I bumped into a mate of mine this arvo who told me all the tenants for the new wing move in next Monday.

I should get a "press pass" off Matt Finnis….lol.

Doc...….if I've got this right.....before the AWFL extension/funding was announced 3-4 months ago ....this new part would have been stage 2.

But with the AFWL works....that will now be called stage 2.

Yes you should haha it would be a great idea! It's nice to go back through the thread and see the build go up from demolition of the old stand to what we see now.

Had a bit of a wander through today after stopping in, saw the museum being put together and it really is next level. Also got a chance to hold the cup which I can't stop smiling about.

It feels so uniquely St Kilda and really welcoming, the little touches everywhere are great
