St Clair Christmas Carnival Draw

Was very excited for the weekend ahead, that was until I received my teams fixture today. Apparently having a one game break between two games at different venues is acceptable. If these two games were at the same venue I wouldn't be excited, but would be more accepting. In all previous carnivals I'd never faced something like this and it is a bit disappointing considering the additional available number of courts at hand.
Anyone else having similar experiences today?

Does anyone know why Jodi still isn't in charge of it?? She ran it faultlessly for so many years and then all of a sudden it's becomes Woodville's? How many more handouts does that club get untill enough is enough ?

Jodie isn't in charge because BSA just handed the carnival to Woodville, without even letting her know beforehand. Because she had done a great job of it previously, it must be to throw a floundering club a lifeline. No courtesy though. BSA obviously wouldn't think to be mindful of a servant of the sport and their association. Either incompetence or they just don't give a shit.

Bsa gave it up because they lost money running it last year and if you haven't noticed bsa not exactly flush with staff these days

Pretty sure one women can't run a carnival by herself with 190 teams and 15 plus courts

You guys are on drugs if you think she is superwoman

Ask yourself why they didn’t tell her , because they are a shambles , that’s why

Maybe not run the whole thing, but she always managed to get it organised (without teams playing two games in a row) more than four days out from it.

2017 Carnival 225 teams the biggest in SA played over 20 courts, ran by a small group of 5 and organised by this "superwoman" you speak about.
The only reason it didn't make money last year was because games couldn’t be played at St.Clair due to renovations. Also programs were always received a week prior to carnival commencing so don’t bag the person that organised this great carnival if it wasnt for her Woodville wouldnt even have the teams they have this year.

Jodie*. Spelling it right is almost as hard as thinking of an excuse better than "everyone gave us wrong email addresses" for why the draws took so long.

Didn't say she did everything by herself, or she's a superwoman, or that BSA was competent (obviously).

Jodie always looked after our teams and the people that helped her make it a smoothly run carnival, keeping in mind you can't please everyone, its a shame its now in the hands of a club that always turns gold into turds. I give it 3 years.

Does anyone know anything about the 3x3 carnival that is being run the same week end who are they?

Just vote with your feet and don't enter next year.
Woodville couldn't organise a root in a brothel. Have they got a replacement for the sacked Herriman, whoops, sorry, replaced because they're moving in a different direction whatever that means. He was hopeless as a jdo and coach but that's what you get for getting a Whitmore disciple.
Now they're stuffing up the golden goose. Finally have the courts to run it but obviously not the know how. Wonder how long before West are the new major tenants at St Clair?

To answer the question above the 3x3 carnival running this weekend is ours www.3ballinsa.com at LeFevre Community Stadium.

Running a carnival is tough and trying to run one with no experience that has that many courts and teams entered is always going to be tough, not getting Jodie involved to help was a huge mistake by Woodville.

We Would like to thank all those who let her slide as she is now with 3BallinSA and has been a huge asset for us. Just know she is aware of the messages of support for her and is very humbled by them, she just didn't want make comment on here and upset anyone (classic Jodie).

If you wish to be involved in 3x3 come check us out we are about enjoying Basketball

Good Luck Woodville hope the carnival is a success

Finally someone with a bit of class and speaking sense. Need more of this attitude to be positive in basketball circles. Celebrate 3 on 3 carnival celebrate new stadiums st francis st Clair lightview. Good luck to sturt. Hope south and west can get something up and running. So over the piss weak gutless slagging. You wingers need to take hard look at yourselves and ask what medication can I use to help me. Basketball is not exactly flying in this state lightning on knees Sixers struggling. Clubs numbers aren't growing in comparison to football and now with advent of girls playing footy another obstacle. And instead of promoting great sport it's let you feet do the walking and not participate in carnivals like Norwood or st Clair. Or 3 on 3. Hope all carnivals go well. Hope everyone has great time. Well done to all the volunteers who basically run these events and shit if some one even gets pay fantastic. It's for the betterment of the sport community and maybe you morons might even realise for the kids who don't give a rat's about the crap we experts speak. A ball a hoop few mates happy happy happy. Merry Hoops to all.

Craig Gilbert, the saviour of Woodville and club legend, is an "absolute flog" is he. Would love to hear your reasoning behind that statement?

What exactly has he saved them from? Being a successful club? Going nowhere fast. Actually, they'll be going somewhere once they lose st clair, so I guess he has done something for them.

I'm not a Woodville person at all. The infighting, divisiveness and inability to get along at the Warriors stems back much further than Gilbert. You only have to refer to the Ben McDonald - Al Green farce from a few years back for one example.
Maybe those that are committed to helping the Warriors become relevant again should actually unite and put the club and its needs first. A novel idea I know when talking about Woodville.

Gilbert inherited a club split by the arrogance of Benn McDonald but hasn't done himself any favours by supporting his mate Scotty who just recruits Centrals players instead of developing his own because he's still salty he didn't get reappointed there. Their girls program is the worst in the state and despite the numbers, the boys are struggling, a lot are going to other clubs based on the coaching.

The original post was regarding games split between venues.
Some games are at st michaels college, and some at titanium. Driving time of about 10 minutes. This won't have an effect on the team, as usual arrival time pre game is 30 minutes early.

If its further than that i'd be concerned.

Going out of your way to tell us you have no involvement with a club guarantees you have involvement with a club.

According to their Facebook page: "coaches and contacts are looking at it (the schedule) to see if there are any glaring errors."

You'd think glaring errors would be fixed prior to going out, but again, Woodville.

interesting the Woodville members who certainly didn't have that opinion in regards to BSA and their District fixtures.

But Woodville so everyone has to play nice and appreciate the horrible service they get right?
