If you approach the location via Beach Rd, you'll pass through the only remaining hand-operated railway gates in Victoria (S 37° 55.905, E 144° 59.595).
The RSL has a bistro, which serves the usual pub/club fare. Average cost of a main meal is $15. The trivia competition starts at 8:00 p.m., and the bistro opens at 6:00 p.m. Why not make a night of it and have a meal in the bistro before the event?
There is a bar in the room we'll be using, and all manner of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available at bar prices. This is not a BYO venue!
The RSL does have a small number of poker machines, but it is not a 'gaming venue' as such. The pokies are located well away from the event room.
The room has rectangular tables that seat eight people. These can be broken apart to seat four people each. So, you can organise with other geocaching teams to form a trivia team, or you can just turn up and team up with others on the night, or you can form your own team. You don't have to organise a whole table by yourself.
What you have to do:
The venue would like an idea of how many people will be attending. If there are a lot of people, they will arrange to put extra bar staff on. So, when you indicate your intention to attend please also indicate how many people will be attending.
Also, they would like to advise the catering staff if a larger-than-normal number of people will be having a meal. So, if you intend having a meal in the bistro before the event, please indicate this in your "will attend" log. If you intend having a meal at the bistro, it is essential that you call the RSL and book a table: (03) 9598 0460.
