I took Michael up to Buckland, about an hour north, to go horse-riding. he went off on a trail ride so I went looking for the fabled Woodsdale football ground nearby. It was well worth it. Now grazed by sheep, the club is in recess but has not folded. Hopefully the sheep will be shooed away soon and the lines marked for a return to competition.

|The long steep driveway down. Its behind an unlocked gate.|
|Sheep graze around the 40 metres out from goal. |
They have no chance of sinking one from there – they're sheep.
|The clubroom, scoreboard and mini-playground.|
|Practice cricket pitch - they would erect nets around it in season I guess.|
|The view from the scoreboard. My real reason for coming was to |
file a report for Scroreboard Pressure, the blog of record for Australian scoreboard lovers.
|I am not a selfie-take but this is a a special for Chonk in Winterthur. Thanks for the beanie and scarf!|
|This is the final score from Woodsdales last grand final win, over Mount Pleasant in 2012.|
|I call the typographic style untutored but confident.|
