Flood Report (1) 23-6-12

I have just.returned from the field and the waters are across.Ballarto Road. Fortunately I doesn't appear to be as deep as last time but still it's.deep enough to cause us grief. I can't see it receding for a few days so it will be a while before we can assess the damage.

I would also like to take this opportunity to praise the efforts of our field manager Norm Morrish, tennant farmer Bruce and our Drainage contractor Glenn. They all worked for almost 4 hours in freezing knee deep water to move our machinery to high ground and hopefully safety. A commendable and brave effort in rising flood waters . On behalf of the club I thank you all for a fantastic effort.

I will be back in touch when we can gain access to the field. In the meantime please stay away from the area as I don't think that the local community need tourists as there is a lot of flooding around the area and a lot of roads are closed

Flooding Update

  The field is reopening Saturday morning 9th of June.

 The ground will still be extremely wet under foot.

The toilets will also be barely functional due the water table being high.
BE CAREFULL

 

Flooding Again

  Due to safety concerns the field has been temporarily CLOSED until further notice.

Yet again the water is rising. This time we got there in time. The machinery has been moved to high ground.

We will keep you posted via the Website and emails

 

 Thanks to Norm Morrish and Paul Somerville for a sterling effort.

Key Change

  The locks have been changed!

 The new locks have now been installed at P&DARCS & members will need to use their new keys in order to enter any of the club buildings. The old padlock still remains on the gate along with a new one in case members have not yet paid their membership & received their new key. This will be removed after the AGM on the 5th August.
