From James Brown, Society For Creative Anarchronism (SCA)  6th Feb
To P.Mitten, City of Yarra;
Hi Peter;

It has already been referred to City of Yarra through normal channels.

Coulson Reserve Hall was vandalised some time in the last week prior to Monday night’s training.

Members arrived to find the main hall had been compromised.

The carpet area of the hall was covered in the residue from two fire extinguishers.
The door of the changing room nearest the new tanks has been damaged and is no longer lockable.

The door is closeable and from the outside does not look accessible even though it is open-able.
Equipment was taken from the outside cage (which appears to have no padlock) and been thrown up and damaged the facia above the side door. There is considerable damage. Some items are still lodged in the wall.

Our members reported the issue by telephone and took some photos of the damage as instructed. Up to 9pm there had been no attendance by council to the site. Concern was given to the safety of the building. I advised our members to leave at the normal time (10pm ) and secure as best they could.

Yours sincerely



From Peter  Mitten – City of Yarra  7th Feb

Thanks for letting me know. Our after hours service did get the call and got out there.


Peter  Mitten – City of Yarra



From City of Yarra – 14th February

Hi James,

Michael O’Brien


December 15 to February 15

There were only 2 events that I attended this period


Toys for Tots  Tourney day

Fun day of archery with a double elimination tournament with the rules of hitting the target  changing with each round

bottom half left side right side of the target face being some of the variations  of format needed to score

the event  was  well attended with one of the largest groups i have seen taking part in the archery

Shah was the winner of the senior division

Keira was the winner of the junior division

the ultimate winner of the the different divisions  and different events was determined by an egg and spoon race , keira being the winner


the second event attended was February bash

the format this time being different as each round was shot at a greater distance

after each shoot the archers  were allocated 1,2 or 3 depending on how well they shot

any one missing the target was awarded a 1

The winner of the archery was drawn between Elena and Sir Brennan .

The ultimate winner being determined by a  sudden death  round the first to score and the other missing was the Winner ,this time being Sir Brennan the victor



Hi James sorry for the late report

Can you forward to Daniel Dunbar?
