What is the current state of the pitch at Mount Pleasant?

After all the recent rain and plenty more forecast is there any danger of the game on Boxing Day being called off?

I've never, ever know the Mount Pleasant pitch to be waterlogged - that's one of the benefits of a sloping pitch. Games have been called off for snow and ice but never, in my experience, for waterlogging.

Does Jim still do the ground keeping

Remember a midweek game about 10 (memory not so good now) years ago against Worky or Haven, it had rained heavily for several days, pitch looked great but on the night was totally destroyed and turned into a massive mudbath, remember Jim getting out onto the field even before the crowd had left and unbeleiveably the pitch was immaculate looking the following Sunday.

Good - at least the pitch won't spoil my Boxing Day.

Bang on BSJ leave that to the mighty Bulldogs and a potentially undercooked turkey drummer!
