Too late Steve, you missed your opportunity!

I can get a crappy wheelbarrow for $56 from Bunnings, it's gotta be better than what we've got so I may as well just get one.

Thanks for being our eyes Steve.

I went to the track this afternoon with the intention of doing some sweeping only to find that some kids had dug out stones from the faces of some of the jumps making the already damged faces gapping great holes. So I made up a slurry with some of the dust that has piled up, a bag of cement and a bottle of Boncrete and patched the holes as best I could. Unfortunately it was dark by the time I got to shaping the faces so they may not be the best patches but hopefully they will settle in OK. I also gave the whole track a good soaking which should be pretty effective as there was no sun. Could the first person who gets there tomorrow please check the patchews and determine if they are dry enough to drive on, if they aren't they may need some astro turf chucked on them.

Oh and I got us a new wheelbarrow from Bunnings as, it's only a cheapy but it's not too bad for $50.

Forecast doesn't look great tomorrow but it's only a 40% chance of a few showers so fingers crossed, we should have a reasonable day.

See ya there.

Nick

Excellent Chelle, I only have Bobcat confirmed so far so that would be a great help.

Cheers,

Nick
