MICHAEL Kitmiridis, Kogarah's Deputy Mayor and likely replacement for Jim Taylor, has endorsed the views expressed by his fellow Liberal candidates on the future improvements to Oki Jubilee Stadium.
Kitmiridis, who is standing for re-election in Middle Ward, played an important role in the return of the Dragons to the Kogarah Municipality.
THE St George Illawarra Dragons have left the fate of WIN Stadium's playing surface in the hands of the weather gods. And a handful of expert groundkeepers.
The club's chief executive officer Peter Doust inspected the ground yesterday after hearing a large portion of the field had been badly damaged by the weekend's Australian Supercross Nationals event.
Mr Doust said he was not shocked at the sight of a ring of brown and yellow grass despite the first home game, against the Newcastle Knights, being only three weeks away.
THE Dragons have crashed to a record fifth consecutive loss at Oki Jubilee Stadium against Canberra today(14/3/2004). The Raiders were triumphant by 21-12 in front of an 'official' crowd of 12,635 that realistically looked between 14,000 and 14,500.
IN another boost for Oki Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah's Liberal Party candidates have expressed their support for the next stage of improvements to the Dragons` spiritual home. If elected by Kogarah ratepayers on March 27, the Liberal Party candidates will throw their full support behind the next stage of enhancements that will further transform the famous venue.
IN another triumph for the St.George Bank Dragons and Oki Jubilee Stadium, the Legends' Walk was officially opened this afternoon in Kogarah Park (6/3/04).
THIS Saturday(March 6th), at Oki Jubilee Stadium, the mighty St.George Dragons will clash with the Illawarra Steelers in Harold Matthews and SG Ball Cup. The first match commences at 1:15 at Kogarah.
WHEN the Legends' Walk officially opens at Oki Jubilee Stadium on Saturday (6/3/04), R2K's paver in honour of the late Lancelot Lewis `Daddy' Earl will be unveiled with the host of other bricks and granite tiles. Several months ago, R2K purchased 4 pavers from the Jubilee Oval Community Appeal. While 3 of these will be engraved with R2K's website details, R2K decided to set aside a paver to pay tribute to one of St.George's earliest benefactors.
WHILE all reserved seating at Kogarah has been sold-out, General Admission tickets go on sale from Monday (1/3/04) for the Saints vs Canberra clash at Oki Jubilee Stadium.
THE auditorium at St.George Leagues Club - once a prized venue for some of Australia and the world's best entertainers - is now an empty shell.
ORGANISERS of the Legends' Walk at Oki Jubilee Stadium have just over one week to complete the much-anticipated project that has been supported by both the St.George and Illawarra rugby league communities.
