After 43 years of calling Jubilee Oval home, the Mudgee Wombats are preparing for their final games to be played at the field before moving their operations to Glen Willow Sporting Complex next year.
This Saturday (July 24), all grades from the under 6s through to the Golden Oldies will be playing their final game at The Burrow.
While there are mixed emotions brought on by the move, Mudgee Wombats president Jeff Hands said the relocation is a not-to-be-missed opportunity.
"Everyone has mixed emotions," he said.
"There's a few who don't want to leave but it's a great opportunity to go out to Glen Willow and have a world class venue at our disposal.
"Jubilee is still a great complex but the opportunity to go to Glen Willow is unsurpassed, in my opinion."
At this stage, the rugby union fields at Glen Willow have been seeded and are starting to grow, meanwhile the clubhouse is expected to be completed within the next couple of months.
Not only is Saturday an event for those currently involved in the club, but the committee has extended the invitation to all.
"All members and members of the community are welcome to join us. COVID-19 restrictions will be in place because it is a planned outdoor event," he said.
"We're basically having a get-together in the clubhouse to give Jubilee and the clubhouse, that our members built, one final hoorah.
"Obviously it's going to be a big day of rugby for the last one at Jubilee."
The 'Back to the Burrow' event will be held on Saturday, July 24 from 9.30am at Jubilee Oval.
Current COVID-19 restrictions must be adhered.
