    Sadly the title gives them away. They are a "leagues club" first and foremost. The thought of sokka being on the coast when the NRL isn't is still a thing for then I suspect.
    Let's face it, the place is a dingy 70's shit hole that needs bulldozing.
    Exists to suck in people to pour money into their pokies.
    As Gosford continues to reinvent itself they will face more competition too.
    Gosford RSL is actually somewhere you would want to go and shows what can be done.
    Do they do away games?

    Exactly true. Wife & I were in there Tues arvo only to escape a bit of the heat before the game. More pokies than I've seen in the past, spread out so that you have to go through them to get to food & drink. Wife asked for previously used (by others before us) food dishes to be removed & table cleaned twice, only got some action when she chucked a tanti and demanded it be done NOW. No hot food available until 6pm, so few people there for the games would have bought anything -- we didn't, we bought our dinner in the stadium. As I've said elsewhere, the only reason I keep my membership is so I can be a member of the Bridge club.

    First time I’ve been in the Leagues Club for three or four years. Had heard it had been renovated. What a soulless hole.

    Hey guys, for reference there is some new faces at the leagues club and with that bring new optimism. I am actually meeting the new CEO today and will report back but they have been much more proactive of late so there are some good signs there.

    Watch this space I suppose.

    Hey guys, just following on the new CEO at the Leagues club was really good and open to working hard to make the experience better for Mariners fans and members with a view to rekindle the partnership between CCLC and CCM.

    I went through some of the challenges from previous seasons and the experiences that have caused us as a club and also you as a fanbase to slowly walk away from the leagues club.

    We will be working closely with them on building a strategy and hopefully there are some really positive outcomes that are driven from this before the end of the season.

    Happy to bring any suggestions and specifics that you guys might have up with them over the next few weeks. One concept that I would be keen to hear would be to have a post match function at the leagues club after the Brisbane Roar game on the 25th Feb? It would probably be around 8pm but to meet all the players and hear from Staj straight after the match could be a potential function that we put on? Thoughts?

    Great idea, Shaun!! Will it be family friendly or adults only?

    What would we prefer? Long weekend and 8pm at night, my wife will hate me for it as I know my boys would nag her endlessly to take them over after a win!
    It might however be a members only event though?? still in planning phase

    It will be the same for our boys (9 and 11) who would love to come along (if that is possible), cheers

    Thanks for this

    I can't think of any reason to go there pre game. Limited food options in a dingy gambling den when Gosford is opening pleasant new venues (Coast, Bay Rd, Bon, Baker St etc) as a consumer, I don't want to go there.
    Post game as a club sponsored event sounds good as it's specific to us.

    . Shaun, maybe this would have been more appropriate after the last match while the YA were advocating a retro round

    . for years the club held these functions after every game and it was at these functions that many friendships were formed as fans talked about the match, the performance and the future. but what really made these events special was the interaction with the players when they were willing to have an individual chat (or a beer in some cases) ... these are the things that connect people to the club - and from what i have seen is just another thing, having dropped away, which has 'allowed' people to fall out of love with the club

    . so it should be no surprise that i think it is a great idea

    ... trivial sidenote: it was at one of these post-match functions in season one that a couple of the players labelled me with my forum name

    Interesting thoughts Middy. Going off what Shaun has said sounds like it might be heading in a good direction at last.

    But being the more sophisticated bunch we are on here, we’ve upgraded to you to BG. :tophat:

    post match functions are awesome especially for the kids.
    Years ago they used to be in the bowls club under bay 16. I can’t remember exactly when it was last done, I think it may have been before arnie. But they were brilliant, the players would have their post match meal the coaches answered questions. I was a young lad keen as mustard, has to be said I only managed to get in when we won though and it was first in best dressed for 100 people or so and it was basically just a celebration of 3 points. The players got right amongst the fans once they’d eaten.

    . haha!
    ... by 'more sophisticated' do you mean: too polite to say that bikini-wearing is something i should no longer be known for
    ... by 'upgrade' do you mean: i am now far too old to dream of calling myself a girl
