Grounds and Clubrooms
- Grounds Contact is _________. (Was Louis Cronin) from City of Stirling
In 2019 -
a) Louis organised for Coolbinia Number 2 Nets to be assessed and replaced. Coolbinia number 2 is built on a rubbish tip so levels need sorting every now and then. The nets had deteriorated to the point coaches would not use.
b) The Grass onto the pitch at Coolbinia 1 was a few inches high and causing problems for bowlers over the past couple of years. The council relayed the turf around the pitch to make it safer and smoother. Still good in 2020/21 season
c) We asked about pitch roll-on Coolbinia 2 - Need to take a video and see. Again probably an issue from being on an old rubbish tip. This could be reviewed.
Generally we have found the council very responsive to requests to check out issues and very helpful. Contact them re

PITCH CREASE MARKINGS
We were advised by Council that this was a club responsibility and so it looks like some white paint, a paintbrush and a straight edge are needed to remark the lines from time to time.
This is something that may be done by a senior club or any coach or parent with some initiative.
This should be looked at each season and
Nets Artificial Turf Recommendations to Council
Ask Councils to use turf all the way as the cricket balls get ripped apart when the go from artificial turf to concrete.
In 2019/2020 - Cricket Club has a 6-month lease from City of Stirling of clubrooms. Football club does the same in winter. Cricket club and Football club have agreement re some cost-sharing of certain upkeep of clubrooms and have separate responsibilities as well. Ian Yiannakis is best person to contact re this.
Committee collaborates with Coollbinia Bombers on this.
The council does an inspection of the clubrooms in late March and we get in a cleaner beforehand to clean the rooms and outside area.
The council provides a report of anything to be corrected.
According to our lease agreement, we are NOT to store gas bottles on the premises. We do have a small BBQ that doesn't plugin to the external gas points and a Gas Bottle. This needs to be kept at one of the committee members places and brought down for events.
I would recommend we get an attachment that will work for the small BBQ which is generally all that is needed OR we get a bigger BBQ but again we would need to check the attachment. Perhaps we can check with football club as to what the attachment gas type is.
