:) Fire at Trevor Barker Oval yesterday fortunately only destroyed ti tree bushes between the coaches box and the main offices outside the concrete wall doing no damage to the club facilities. Fortunately it was put out by the fire brigade but as all that ti tree is a rubbish dump area and should be cleaned right out with a fire track all around the TBO oval for safety reasons. Hopefully that track may happen in time. go zebs zebra :

Over the years there must have been thousands concieved there!!

It was also a popular suicide spot as well... having lived 2 streets from the ground for over 20 years, I always felt that the ti-tree should be selectively cleared...but the conservationists would scream

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years
