Forgive my ignorance but where is Salisbury?
Nice to see Cairns survive. Nice centre court they have there.
Marg River I may go on a holiday down there and watch some of that, definately a better attraction than Kal but harder to get to....
Port Pirie is a shithole....ive heard so many players say they wish they'd move that event to somewhere else...

Shame, we need more events a 50k to attract some better quality players down here not less events...

To get to Esperance (for example) players have a 6 hour bus ride from Perth or something stupid like that. And can you get to Mt. Gambier and Port Pirie without a crappy 2-3 hr bus ride/car trip?
Esperance has a wa regional airline so some of them that can afford it can fly from Perth...

again the circuit is stop start 2 events here...break....2 here...break.... bad scheduling..
