Now I’m a patient and tolerant person, and I can put up with change, however, can anyone tell what has been going through the minds of the West Belconnen leagues Club board regarding their new extensions?
Firstly the car park is now as far away as it possibly could be, albeit they do provide an intermittent shuttle golf buggie service.
Secondly, the new entrance, which is probably temporary, leads straight into the old lounge, which effectively turns the lounge area into a walkway.
Third, they have a great big plywood structure in the middle of the club where some other works are going on, possibly a new bar, who knows, they never show any plans.
And lastly, the area looks terrible with fences and wires and bricks and rubble laying all over the former front access area to the club.
I put it to them that their Saturday night crowds have dropped massively since they have started these works. Will the punters come back? Thats hard to say in the current climate of clubs.
Whatever the case, the works had better be good because they are annoying the hell out of everyone at present and certainly look a long way off being finished.
having said that, the Ugly Warriors bar is still a good place to have a quiet beer and to contemplate the raiders woeful showing this season.
