That is correct Blackrocker Sandy is not a viable Pokies area.
Years ago Sandy tried for a few hotels that had pokies but missed out again ,so now we have a very active new "Sandy by the Bay" Social /Function room available.
Sure won't maybe bring in the multi dollars as pokies can but at this point in time and in the future Sandy can pay it's way. Of course more money will be needed to compete with pokies clubs for player payments and the plan in mind will allow for this.

Clubs dont have to have the pokies venue in its area!Have a look at Collingwoods outlets

Visit a Collingwood FC Club venue today and support the Club you support – the Mighty Magpies!

Collingwood Football Club operates several entertainment venues around Melbourne, including The Beach Albert Park, The Club in Caroline Springs, The Coach & Horses in Ringwood, and The International in Lilydale.

So Magpie members, why not visit one of Collingwood's official club venues today?

I dont think Sandy will ever be able to keep up with the "pokie" clubs and a nice Social club can never generate rhe income that pokies do. Just ask Crown where they get their massive profits!Even the bastard Storm thugby club has a pokies outlet at Aces Sporting Club in Keysborough - not all that far from Sandringham!

I find it incedible that a leading club like the SFC has dropped the ball so badly in this area.Raffles,Memberships and Auctions can only raise a certain amount of money and rely a lot on the clubs performance on the field on the other hand the pokies money stream is 24/7 and has nothing to do with the clubs performance - I know which I would rather have.

Billy I knew you were ready to have another shot at our Club. The SFC Committee have over the past years brought the Club from Debt to have a surplus with hard work .
All players and accounts inc. VFL are always paid on time as is the ATO. not every Football club can say that. We have a very good set up plan in place without pokies as much as we would like them but not at present. I employ you to attend the SFC. Annual Meeting to raise your questions and help with answers to benefit the SFC.
I am serious about this and wish you to attend and get the answers you need to know.
If you are a member you will know the time ,place and date of that meeting if not stay tuned and find out. It won't be a late night and not too dark for you I hope.
It will be a pleasure to meet you.
