    Row 9 upstairs right on the try line, club side. Sun finally under cover at half time. If the roof extension was solid and not translucent we would have avoided the sun all day. No complaints though. Loved it.

    If I had to travel to Belmore to watch Parra play it would not have the same feel as going to Parra. Same as if I was going to Penrith or Leichhardt . And for that reason clubs will want to try and play some games in their own territory or risk losing fans or gaining new ones atleast imo. It is a long way from Cambeltown to Parra.
    Bars and restruants where doing well before and after games and they are huge winners here.

    I am glad I bought general admission. No worry about sun. I made the comment how I saved $200 and avoided the sun plus get a better view.

    Yep almost where I was sitting. Great view. Watching footy from the ends allows the best view in terms of where the gaps are opening up. We always do it.

    I am in Row 18, I don't know who I pissed off to get that far up, but I am on the 50 metre line.

    The Sun hit us at 3:15pm (yes we were tracking it). The Sun hit the opposite roof at half time in the game and the gaps under that were not a problem as the clouds had rolled in on the horizon.

    My mum who is now getting on in years started to feel sick and ended up with sun stroke. She did christen the new medical facilities outside of Bay 118 so there is always an up side.

    We are row 10 on the 40 metre line. The sun hit us during the second half of the Wenty game and i think about 25 mins into first grade went away.

    Apart from it being generally hot the actual sun didn’t bother me from a visual point of view as i had a hat on and had no reason to look up in to the sun.
