STOP CHANGING AFL RULES

AFL RULE CHANGES. Our great game started in 1897                  We are now in 2018 and the game is just not the same it’s a disgrace and a insult to the great game Us fans have had enough of this rubbish rule changes year after year  We don’t want rule changes                             We can’t even adapt to the rules in place atm and now your changing them           (YET AGAIN) its just going to cause more confusion more headaches.               Enough is Enough.           We fans are outraged by many of the rule changes what have been put in place we fans and players want a say in what rules need to be changed or revised  That quote - "We're not concerned about any outrage that might come from this." - shows how little respect the AFL have for the fans and the Game.... We've also consulted with our fans, we've listened to the fans as we have worked through this over the last 10 months."     what a load of......You never listened.. Us fans show up wanting to watch football players going in hard players giving it there all but with rule changes after rule changes the players the fans are confused,players second guess them selves it’s ridiculous and frustrating to see. This petition is no joke we fans are fed up and we call for these rules to be ask to the public we want a say in what we watch and pay to watch. We have a voice listen to it We will fight and not give up We don’t support your rule changes we want rule changes to end We want FOOTBALL BACK If you don’t in anyway listen to us the public you will lose our support you will lose the fans and you will lose the future of the great game Involve the fans  Let’s get 5,000 signatures and make a stand  #STOPTHEMUPPETS

KooWeeRup & District M.C feel Cardinia council is putting Corporate over Community

We are opposing the sale: of land at 335 Mc Gregor Road, Pakenham, to Podium 1 Pty Ltd.KWRMCC is a grass roots motorcycling club. This is where it all starts, a place for children and adults alike to ride, at minimal cost.. - A place to learn to ride in a safe and supervised environment- Help develop a sense of purpose, community, build confidence & self esteem - Learn respect for self & others, develop life skills and knowledge that will stay with them forever and a place for family to share and have funAlong with the Pakenham Auto Club we have spent hundreds of man-hours lobbying state government and were successful in having this land rezoned for motorsport. We now feel council is passing all our hard work over to a Corporate entity to develop.In essence we feel council is putting Corporate over Community.Having no objection to a ‘world class motor facility’ for Pakenham, we simply ask that council not push the task of lobbying State Government for ‘the another parcel land’ (of which we have no details) to be rezoned for motorsport onto our club again.It could be offered instead to the corporate entity, Podium 1 Pty Ltd, to do so? We have been operating on the land at McGregor road for some 10 years now without the ability to develop it further due to significant restrictions placed upon us by council. We would look forward to having the opportunity to develop McGregor road for our grass roots community.

local non for profit sports club needs councils response for permanent location

 Our Local motorcycle club is in Limbo with the cardinia shire  awaiting a response to know if we are able to remain at our current location or having to move to another. This stops us from be able to improve our tracks and facilities for the benefit of our members, especially our children.This track enables our members and their families  to have a place to ride motorbikes in a safe and controlled environment The Club was first established in 1928 as the result of keen local motorsport enthusiasts. WWII disrupted the club in 1939, with some 30+ years passing until it re-established again in 1973.The club has grown from the 14 founding members of 1973 (4 are still active members to this day) to almost 300 members today.The club has been in negotiations with Council for some 20 years now re a permanent home .• In 2002, our club organized a public rally with an estimated 2500 people attending to support our cause for a home .• In 2008 the KWRMCC and the Pakenham Auto Club were granted use of the land under the power lines traversed by Toomuc Creek – McGregor Road. • Since 2008, the KWRMCC has regularly met with the council CEO to request / discuss permanency. • On all too many occasions we have been told ‘the council is looking for an alternative site’; ‘we will come back to you in 6-8 weeks with an answer’ (the answers rarely forthcoming). • The club has also met with many different councilors over the past 20 years re this issue, with still no resolution. • We have been advised that a corporate entity is seeking to use the land for a large motorsport facility, and as such an alternative site would need to be found for the KWRMCC & Pakenham Auto Club. • The council sent a letter in August 2017 stating that we would not be moved from McGregor road until an alternative location was found. • Our club has been disadvantaged in that the growth of the club membership and has not been actively pursued due to not having a permanent home, we have been unable to invest in facilities such as amenities, Club rooms building better tracks that could be used all year round • …we have not only local, state and national champions living within our shire but international champions as well. A great example to the young people of our community that the council should take note of perhaps? • KWRMCC has funded itself for the past 20 years, with little or no input from outside organizations. Thus typifying strong community spirit and commitment. • The club has worked tirelessly to provide an outside, exercise based activity for both adults and children alike in the safest possible environment. • KWRMCC is very family orientated; it is a delight to see children as young as 4 (some complete with training wheels) having fun and gaining such wonderful life and road skills by riding at the track at McGregor Road. • The age of current riding members ranges from 4yo through to 75yo. • The club has further branched out from its initial core of dirt bike riding, to include road and adventure bike riding as well, with a growing number of female riders. • We are now into 2nd and 3rd generation members …… and still no permanent home.  It is of real concern that it may be perceived that council is putting a corporate entity’s proposal over that of local community by not expediting our club to a permanent home.Why is it taking Council 10 years to decide on a permanent home for the KWRMCC….. is it really that hard? • The future vision of KWRMCC would be Have a permanent home to build good quality tracks for the local people to enjoy the sport in a safe controlled environment and therefore to increase membership for Juniors, enable members to excel in future motorcycling events and activities
