Training Day Sunday 17th August

This month's WGAA training day is this Sunday 17th August.  The entry to the Melton training venue has changed.  Our usual entry  has been  fenced off  and access is now via Reserve Rd, Tullidge St and then Lakewood Blvd - see map below (Click to view in Google Maps).
 There is a small carpark on Lakewood Blvd or otherwise park in Lakeside Blvd itself.  To enter the training venue follow the rock park across the waterway. Dogs must be leashed until you reach the training site - this is a Melton Council requirement.  Name tags must also be worn.
 Training commences at 9am and concludes at approximately 12.00 with a BBQ.  Anyone with a gundog is welcome.
