Hilton vs Michaelhouse
ARRANGEMENTS FOR HILTON VS MICHAELHOUSE DAY
We expect a significant number of people and as such, please ensure absolute compliance with security personnel and marshals. The booking of spectator places around Gilfillan is structured such that we can manage the large number of people, please adhere to the guidelines provided.
Open fires are a health and safety concern and as such are not allowed anywhere on campus.
Unfortunately, the consumption of alcohol has marred this special event on a few occasions in the past. Please would the public be cognisant of this and show due respect for the event.
The public are asked not to walk onto the playing field during and between matches, and, in particular, when the 'Spell' is being done prior to the 1st XV.
We ask people to respect that space is limited and request that individuals do not occupy too much space when booking a place around Gilfillan, especially as we are the hosts of this event and that other visitors will not be in a position to books areas until Saturday morning.
Booking of spaces around Gilfillan, using picnic blankets or chairs, may ONLY take place from Friday morning at 6:30 a.m. Security guards will be posted at Gilfillan to look after these blankets. Please do not rope-off areas because these will be removed by security guards.
All gazebos must be erected at least 5m behind the seating areas (top of the banks) so as not to block the view of those wishing to sit in these areas.
