I have a quick query for the denizens of the North side.
I regularly pass by Dickson oval on my way to work or to the shops – I use the oval for a kick around with the kids or as a signpost for directions to my house i.e. “if you see the Dickson oval on your left, you have gone too far”
However, I noticed a new sign at the entrance of the car park at what I thought was Dickson ovals. The sign says ‘Downer No 1 Oval’
I am pretty sure that Antill St is the dividing line between Downer and Dickson – the North side of Antill St is Downer and the South side of the street is Dickson.
How can this venerated sports ground have been miss identified by generations of children and parents on a Saturday morning? Or, has the government stuck up the wrong sign? If so, how is that possible?
I repeat – WTF?
