Exciting news, members!
Works on extending our range have started and this weekend a dozen hardy members toiled at Whiskey Flat
Trees were removed to create three extra lanes
The butt was extended
The coaches mound was extended to match
Cleared areas were re-vegetated
Trails were mown ( mowing tussock is a massive job)
Drainage works in three separate areas with underground pipes laid - that'll help keep the range operational in marginal conditions.
Thanks to our members from Sydney, Albury, Wodonga and Melbourne who took time out of their weekends to assist. Neither Tom Wilkinson nor Amity Maranteli are shirkers. They are a credit to their parents. They are just 15 and 14 years old and took on the heavy work, hauling loads of timber and turf, shovelling and chopping wood. Thank you to Hotham Resort Management and to the Victorian State government for their continuing support.
Neil Richardson managed the project with practical efficiency. Well done, Neil!
Works will continue over Easter and we look forward to your assistance then!
