I don't reckon a merch store would be worth the effort - rent, staffing, stock costs etc., and there simply wouldn't be enough foot traffic to make it worthwhile.I guess so but you would think (or at least hope) we would have the most visitors of the tenants. Do we have a merch shop there?
Progress is nice, but to inject a sense of perspective, the first post in this thread was in 2008!But in all seriousness, what is happening with the hotel up there? I haven't kept up with much COE news for the last 2 years but it is certainly coming along nicely.

From that I assume that council and/or RMS have some concerns that need to be worked through.In regards to the next steps we are in the process of revisiting the master plan to ensure this are still on track and the main component that needs to be address is the traffic management on Wyong road, once this is completed it will pave the way for the next stages to get happening really quickly.
I`ve got to agree the view from the Mariner`s office is fantastic.No Merch shop yet. I agree this would be better suited on the ground floor but it's not like it's busy enough to warrant the need to take the prime real estate.
Definately, they picked the offices, for the view. Magic view from up there.
There is a Medical Centre on the ground floor.
Nothing has been done in relation to the Gym over the last 2 months.
Assuming he has/can get a license for it... who's to say it'll work. Club Tuggerah wasn't what you'd call a money spinner on the same site.Nothing has happened here for 6 months.
The Gym was supossed to be built next but if i was MC i would be building the Leagues style club next, filling it with Pokies and use the revenue stream to fund the next stages.
They are going to play anyway so why not play with us.Wouldn't it be better if we don't fund ourselves out of the pockets of people who like flashing lights and can't do maths?
Agree entirely. I'm absolutely fine with people having a bit of fun; I'm definitely not a prohibitionist. I'm for harm minimisation.They are going to play anyway so why not play with us.
What I'd like is maybe a stricker gambling rules than none at all.
E.g. 1 and 2 cents machines only or time limits or daily limits. Pokies can be a bit of fun if you have self control but they can be the devil for those that can't.
I think we can make money without pokies - Souths Rabbitohs ditched theirs years ago and they're going OK.If you could make money without pokies every one would be doing it
Have been there once for a function and I think that was before the pokies decision. It seems the Leagues club is actually closed now and they're going to be redeveloped.Have u been there Dibo? Do you know if it's a pokie free place now?
Broadcast distributions, sponsorships, gate receipts, corporate hospitality, etc. Like any other professional sporting club.Where is the cash coming from? Sam Burgess ain't cheap.
