The holiday season isn't always about putting your feet up. Not when a 100-year wait for your own clubrooms is almost over.
Marrar's home ground was again a hive of activity on Sunday morning with another working bee at the new building at Langtry Oval.
'The Hangar' is set for a grand opening at the Bombers' first home game of the season, against the Northern Jets on Sunday April 26.
That will be a year after the first sod was turned and a good 16 months since project manager Vicki Langtry started the paperwork.
With a $44,000 grant from the AFL, donations from Landmark and Pentak, and a massive contribution of volunteer labour and expertise - including guidance from Tony Huntly - will deliver Marrar an expansive and impressive structure housing new women's changerooms, disabled toilets, kitchen and canteen and a bar and clubroom and a 30-metre long tiered verandah.
"We've been around for 100 years and this is the first clubroom we've ever owned," Langtry said.
"We've had three working bees with painting. The tiler has started. The kitchen is coming in January and the floor will probably be laid in February."
The club says the facility is a great development for Marrar which will vastly improve the venue for spectators, particularly young families and the elderly, during the season.
