Update on Club Upgrades!
In early 2019, the club submitted a plan (Dream) to NSW Deputy Premier and Local MP Hon. John Barilaro for it’s desire to update the clubs facilities
These updates centered around the increased participation of female footy by way of building a new set of change room facilities, assistance with installing a Solar Energy System to help with rising energy costs, updating security fencing around the facility and upgrading the Legends Stand Viewing and Office Facility.
The overall cost of this dream was estimated at over $1.3 million and any an all contributions would start the journey towards fulfilling this dream.
It was a wonderful day when Mr Barilaro called Tigers General Manager Adrian Pavese and committed $590k towards the plan which has well and truly started the ball rolling. Following the State Government Grant from Mr Barilaro being ratified the club was then also extremely fortunate to gain extra support from the following organisations and people:
Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council
Federal Member for Eden/Monaro Mike Kelly
Terry and the team at Brooks Marchant
Benefactor and former Tiger player Eric Syne
Former volunteer the Late Lisa Bush who left the club a substantial contribution following her passing in 2018.
Added to the above has been the wonderful efforts put in by the suppliers of these upgrades who have been nothing short of exceptional in their assistance and quoting for all of the projects.
MWL Air Conditioning Services.
Currently running on schedule to have the projects completed in early March, the official opening of all of the upgrades will be held on Good Friday 10th April during the AFL Canberra’s Women’s 1st Grade Round 1 Mega Day being held at Allinsure Park.
