Wet weather occasionally forces gala days, training and games to be cancelled.
The SSFA clubs determine if games are played on weekends. The Council Wet Weather Line which advises if SSC grounds are closed during the week (Ph: 9710 0105) doesn’t apply on the weekends.
In the event of wet weather on game days, here is what to do:
In the event of wet weather:
- Wait to be advised by your team manager
- Check www.gufc.com.au & GUFC Facebook Page for updates.
For early games, the decision may not come before you need to leave for the game. Unfortunately, this is sometimes unavoidable, due to the grounds not being inspected until 6.30am, with usually a 7.10am notification from the SSFA.
Change in Wet Weather Procedures for 2020 – from SSFA & Clubs General Meeting 14 July 2020
Going forward matches will be played on grounds that are called in regardless of how many grounds are called in or out. Catch up games will be played if possible (with priority to complete all games in an age/grade). Teams who refuse to play a catch up will forfeit the match. Where it is not possible to complete all matches for an age/grade the results of those matches that have been played will be void.
Also note that just because some games are called off, others may go ahead eg Saturday games could be off, while Sunday games are on.
In the event of wet weather on game days, please DON’T message or call our clubhouse, committee members, or other playing grounds.
This just ties the phone & computers up when they need to be used.
Just wait to hear – you will receive notification as soon as we know!
