2012 ACT Junior Rugby weather alternatives


In the event of poor weather conditions the Canberra Stadium and or the Uni-Norths Curator will converse with the ACTJRU Event Manager four (4) hours prior to the 1st game of competition each day and will agree on game play times on the Canberra Stadium and Uni-Norths field surface.

The ACTJRU Event Manager and the Curators will agree if the Canberra Stadium and or Uni-Norths venues are suitable to accommodate games and determine game start times.

An ACTJRU ‘Wet Weather (Contingency) Plan’ and an ‘Emergency (Contingency) Plan’ has been devised to accommodate any situation at the Stadium and or Uni-Norths ovals. These plans allow for the fail over of games that would ordinarily played at Canberra Stadium and Uni-Norths to North Curtin playing fields, hosted by the Easts Junior Rugby Union Club. North Curtin playing fields are on the corner of corner of McCulloch and Dunstan Streets, Curtin.

Should poor weather conditions set-in over the two days of the Championships, Canberra Stadium and Uni-Norths curators will review and evaluate the present and future ground damage of the fields at the time of poor weather.

Canberra Stadium and the Australian National University have the right to cancel any of or all the games being played at their respective venues should the combination of weather and games be seen to be detrimental to the field of play.

THE FOLLOWING ADVICE WILL BE ADVISED ON THE BRUMBIES WEBSITE UNDER THE ‘NEWS’ TAB
ACTJRU - WET WEATHER CONTINGENCY PLAN

Should the Canberra Stadium Authority and or the Australian National University cancel ACTJRU Championship and or Grand Final games on either Saturday 1st or Sunday 2nd September, 2012, the ACTJRU Wet Weather and or Emergency Contingency Plans will be executed. These Plans will only be executed with appropriate notification of the unavailability of Canberra Stadium and or Uni-Norths playing fields under the Venue and Event Instructions.

North Curtin as the fail over venue will only be used in the event of a significant delay in matches at Canberra Stadium and or Uni-Norths fields due to injury, facility failure or potential damage to the playing surface.

 Should the Canberra Stadium Authority close Canberra Stadium on the morning or the afternoon of either Saturday 1st or Sunday 2nd September, the contingency will be to play those games at North Curtin playing fields as per the ‘Failover Venue and Game Schedule”, below.

 Should the Australian National University close Uni-Norths fields on Saturday 1st September the contingency will be to play those games at North Curtin playing fields as per the ‘Failover Venue and Game Schedule”, below.

 Should the ACT Government close North Curtin playing fields on either Saturday 1st and or Sunday 2nd September, this will mean no play will be permitted on any ACT Government Sports fields, and possibly Uni-Norths and Canberra Stadium over the Grand Final weekend. As such Championship and Grand Final games scheduled to be played at Canberra Stadium, Uni-Norths and or North Curtin (failed over from Canberra Stadium and Uni-Norths’ cancelled games) will be deemed abandoned and the winners will be declared as the team that finished highest on the ACTJRU 2012 Season Competition Ladder.

Local Radio Stations: AM : ABC (666 AM), 2CA, 2CC and FM: 106.3 and 104.7 will broadcast messages from 6:00 AM notifying any changes to the Draws and if the Wet Weather / Emergency Contingency Plan has been invoked, advising what games will be played at North Curtin and at what time. Under the Wet Weather / Emergency Contingency Plan some game kick-off times may be brought forward.
