After countless discussions held with the Boroondara City Council regarding the upgrade of the scoreboard facilities at Victoria Park we regrettably advise the electronic scoreboards planned for both the lower and upper ovals at Victoria Park will not proceed this year.
Boroondara City Council had led us to believe that the upgrade was possible for Season 2016 but have since advised that due to the current electrical supply to Victoria Park electrical scoreboards cannot be sustained. We further understand that Boroondara City Council plan to update the power supply in the near future.
With great endeavour and your generous support we raised a sum of $5000 from the 2015 Scoreboard Raffle held at the end of 2015 Season specifically for the purpose of the upgrading the manual scoreboards to electronic scoreboards. Given the above this will not occur in the 2016 season. We therefore wish to advise all Comets members and community that these funds will be held by the club for specific application of new scoreboards when the Boroondara City Council upgrade the power supply to Victoria Park. If there are any developments we shall keep you informed.
