We held a work planning meeting upstairs in the function room which was more than comfortable, after the lunch that was provided (excellent) we did curling which was fun from start to finish. Probably consider bringing the Grandchildren for some fun another time!

Looks and feels a bit disorganized. Staff is helpful however, they are not always sure of what they are doing. More assistance is needed on the field and more trained people that can assist beginners.

Think we had about perfect seating, center of top row, though any middle seating would be ok. Keen to go again when next in Melbourne
