Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - By JES­SICA MAD­DOCK

The Up­per Clutha Rugby Club hopes to be­gin work on its new $1.4 mil­lion sports cen­tre by the end of next year. The pre-project co­or­di­na­tor, Mike O’Connor, said the club was propos­ing dou­bling the size of its ex­ist­ing club rooms by adding on a sec­ond level. It would be called the Show­grounds Com­mu­nity Sports Cen­tre. The ex­ist­ing build­ing would be­come the chang­ing rooms and a can­teen. The sec­ond level would be a con­ven­tion cen­tre, ca­ter­ing for up to 150 peo­ple, which mem­bers of the pub­lic could lease for wed­dings or con­fer­ences at a rea­son­able rate. The ex­ist­ing foot­print of the build­ing would in­crease by about 40 sqm, to 370, to al­low for an en­trance foyer. Plans had been drawn and the club was in­ves­ti­gat­ing part­ner­ships with other Wanaka groups.
