All teams should report to grounds for normal starting time. Covers are in use and 9am inspections are NOT required. The Match Secretary must be contacted by 12.00 if a pitch is found to be unplayable, in case another ground is available.
Covers must be put away after play and tables roped off. Melb Cobras are rostered for covers storage at Fawkner Park. At grounds hired through the MCA, hessians must be dried and folded by home sides and may not be used for covering after play begins.
Home sides at Fawkner Park must put out Caution signs, and put them away after play. Extra signs are available on the north wall of the Northern Pavilion, in a cage that can be opened with the covers room key.
