Time is running out for patrons to cement their name or business forever in the Dragon's LEGEND'S WALK at OKI Jubilee Stadium.
There has been very good support from Hotels and Clubs in the St.George area so far, with the Hurstville Ritz, The Kings Head Tavern at South Hurstville, Narwee Hotel, Mortdale and Meridian Hotels , Beverley Park Golf Club and Kogarah RSL etching their names on behalf of their patrons and members into arguably the most famous walk of Rugby League fame and at the same time contributing funds towards this community project, the renovation of OKI Jubilee Stadium.
To date over 300 supporters and sponsors have contributed to the Legend's Walk that features Perspex and granite columns , etched pavers and a specially designed concrete pathway. Following a site meeting last week it was decided to upgrade the design of the column.
Appeal Promotions and Fundraising manager Frank Bates said, “As there will be eight specially floodlit columns, with each column depicting two legends, the Directors of St.George District Rugby League Club have been given the task to select the sixteenth Legend”.
“League experts believe it could be the late Brian Clay, but we will have to wait on the Director's decision”. Bates added.
Should Brian “Poppa” Clay be selected he will join some of his mates including Matt McCoy, Noel Pidding, Ken Kearney, Norm Provan, Eddie Lumsden, John Raper MBE, Reg Gasnier AM, Ian Walsh, Graeme Langlands MBE, Johnny King, Kevin Ryan, Billy Smith, Rod Reddy, Craig Young and Mark Coyne in this incredible team of St.George Legends.
Supporters, businesses and sponsors who have not yet registered their application should do so immediately, as all orders will close on 31 August. Applications can be obtained by visiting Kogarah Council Customer Service, St.George Leagues, Bates Bikes or order online by simply visiting www.kogarahlife.com or contacting Frank Bates on 0419 251596. Currently a Granite tile for the column costs $500 or a Paver for $200. Purchase both for only $600.
Orders must be cut off at the end of August so that the Legend's Walk major sponsor and supplier United Stone Australia located at Bexley can manufacture the Granite tiles in time for completion by mid October, following the completion of the internal landscaping at OKI Jubilee Stadium
