It was roughly a decade ago when secretary Marion Eslick and president Michelle Stevenson felt it was time for the car park at the Orange Hockey Centre to undergo an upgrade.
Potholes were beginning to appear more than you'd like, line markings were starting to fade, and the car park lights simply weren't sufficient.
After several years of negotiation with Orange City Council, the club is set to receive roughly $300,000 worth of funding that will to go towards a comprehensive upgrade of the car park as well as the outdoor lights.
Marion Eslick's been one of the main driving forces behind the push for the funds and is thrilled to see the hard work pay off.
"We've been on council for a number of years to do some major repairs to the car park," Eslick said.
"They've finally secured some funding from the state government and put us as a priority.
"The lighting will be upgraded as well as a total redo of the surface."
And the boost to the lighting shouldn't be overlooked as the club's doors are open after sunset almost every night.
"We have a lot of games and meetings at night," she said.
"The lights will help with the security of the cars but also help the people who are leaving at night as well."
To receive a sizeable grant like this will help the club tremendously and Eslick - as well as Stevenson - gave their thanks for the funds.
"We're grateful for the assistance council has given us in getting it done," she said.
"Hopefully it can be finished over the summer."
