With the excitement that was generated by the Centenary of our Club, members have expressed the desire for the clubrooms to be open more often for members and their friends to come in and enjoy a casual chat with some good coffee! The Executive Committee has thus decided to initially open the clubrooms once a month as an Open Day on the first Thursday of the month, unless it is a Bingo Day when our Open Day will be the second Thursday.
The first Open Day will be Thursday 11 May from 11.30am at Ithaca House, Level 2, 329 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. Click here to find a list of dates for both Bingo and Open Days.

Come in and have a coffee or tea and chat about everything Ithacan, the football, world events or anything that takes your fancy with your fellow members and their friends.
