From now on the gate we normally enter Jarvis Oval from will probably be closed. We all have to enter from Deakin. Go along Colac Rd, turn right at the Bunnings traffic lights (Deakin Uni sign), Pigdons Rd. Turn left into Deakin Uni (Alfred Deakin Dr), turn left at first roundabout (Nicol Dr), go over three speed humps, turn left into the narrow dirt road at Archery sign and 40km sign into Jarvis Rd. Go through the gates and go slowly down the hill. We are on the left of Jarvis Oval. Park where we normally park on the upside of gravel road.
