GENERAL INFO:

  • UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS: Standard centre uniform is required as per LAVic regulations.  Chest patches ARE required.

  • MENTONE PARENT DUTIES: Mentone parents please click here for the duty roster.  Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation - we can't host such a massive event without everyone's help!

  • Call Room - Opens 30 mins before the event, closes 20 mins before the event.

  • Straight Finals will be run at heat time in the event of scratchings.

  • Parking and Pedestrian Access – we don’t have car or pedestrian access to the driveway or carpark at the track until after 1:30pm.  The driveway and carpark will be roped-off in the morning and Rowans Road will also be busy, therefore the best place to park will be at the back of Holmesglen Hospital (parking fee approx. $6 per day).  Entry to the carpark is off South Road - search for “Guardian Childcare & Early Learning Centre – Moorabbin” in Google Maps.  There is a lane for entrance to the back of the track.  There is also street parking in Joan Street at the back of the track, with access to the track through Joan Lane.

  • Warm up area - we also don't have access to the oval next to the track until after 1:30pm, therefore we'll need to use the other half of GR Bricker Reserve, which is across Rowans Rd.  The road is busy - please safely escort your children across the road.

  • No Tent Pegs - we are not allowed to peg our marquees in the main viewing area.  If you are planning to bring your own marquee, please plan to bring weights for your tents.  We will have a few Mentone Tents set up for everyone to share.  Don’t forget to bring your own chairs.

  • Tent drop off – Tents will need to be dropped-off before 8:00am at the Rowans Road entrance or you may have to risk parking in a no-standing zone on Rowans Road briefly to unload.  You won’t be able to park in the track carpark after dropping off tents.

  • Parents' Relay Race – yes it is on again.  Held at lunch time so we need some of our speediest parents to take part and represent our Centre!

  • Entrance fee for parents and spectators - $5pp or $10 per family, Athletes free.  Each ticket puts you in the draw to win one of 4 great prizes. Details at each gate.

  • BBQ facilities and limited canteen will be available on the day. Mr Whippee and a Coffee Van will also be there.

  • Pinnacle Fitness Centre and Decathlon are great supporters of the event so be sure to pop in to both of their marquees to see what activities they have planned. We also have Sarah our amazing face painter back again!
