The EU storeroom at the Eastwood Leisure Centre is rapidly nearing completion – after more than a year of planning and preparation! With Tom swinging his hammer, Blake on the saw, Mark measuring and nailing, and Richard and Heather sorting out the gear boxes, Saturday 31st July finished with the storeroom 90% complete. Tom and Blake are really proud of the control stand storage with all 80 of the EU stands in 1.5 by 2.0 metres of space.
Easy identification and efficient storage should make control stand pick up and return a breeze (assuming we can just get them in the right locations in the bush). All the big result boards, tables and tents fit nicely into new low spaces with high storage for light items – empty water containers, drink cups, toilet paper, plastic buckets, trays, and corflute signs. Two large racks for event material in storage cubes round out the well-organised storeroom. But the biggest benefit is the location – just south of the Coles/Woolworth cark park in downtown Ballarat on Short Street – such that the club’s logo and signage will be in front of the passing public eye at the Eastwood Leisure Centre.View Larger Map
Eureka Orienteers is one of several clubs, including basketball and karate, and several community groups to use the centre for meetings, storage of club gear, and promotion to the sport-conscious Ballarat community. Watch this spot for the upcoming grand opening in August!
