Pitch location

At the Special General Meeting on Monday 17 December 2012 member clubs voted on their preferred location for the new pitch. Options were Stockwell Park and the Barossa Recreation Centre (the Rex). Originally the Rex was not considered an option on advice from Council but became an option recently. Additionally, the position of the pitch if it was to be placed at Stockwell changed to now be on top of Oval #2 (previously was going to be alongside that oval but that option became unavailable). Hence the meeting to decide the preferred option.

The BVHA President, Courtney Ribbons, chaired the meeting and general discussion was held as well as time for clubs to gather and discuss amongst themselves and other clubs.

The final vote resulted in the preferred option for the location of the new pitch being at Stockwell Recreation Park.

The ATAC (Artificial Turf Action Committee) will now be able to move forward with definite planning and hopefully we will soon see action on the site.

If any BVHA member has questions re the pitch at any time please email the BVHA President - president@barossahockey.com .
