The Kyla Park sportsground surface was recently torn up by vehicles hooning on the wet grass leaving the field a muddy mess that will potentially take months to repair.
Council’s Parks Coordinator Wayne Hutton said at the time "The ground is just mush and will need quite a bit of repair. Sportsgrounds must be stable underfoot so simply topdressing the grass isn’t enough. There are lots of big divots out of the ground and these are holding water, and until they dry out we can’t put any machinery on the ground to get started.
“I’m devastated for the asset, but more so for the AFL committee who have been putting in so much effort behind the scenes. That’s the real heartbreak.”
However the Broulee Moruya Australian Football Club have just carried out a Working Bee this morning laying turf, rolling and topdressing the damaged areas on the ground under sunny skies that should dry out the pitch and make it more than playable for the first games of the season starting on April 29th.
Above: This is what local sport is all about - Team BMG rallied with a working bee to make repairs to the Tuross BMG Home Ground damaged recently by hoons.
Marty Jones of team BMG told the Beagle as he was unloading rolls of grass for the new surface "We've had late interest in the Women's side, with 2 more registering to play this week. We will run a Women's training session at Gundary 5pm this Thursday, with all players intending to play with BMG W expected to attend. "I remind those who can't make it to RSVP me as we need to count the numbers, before we enter the competition, starting on 29th April." "Give it a go ladies, we need 6 more. All ages welcome from 14 upwards." "Register now and pay when we get the numbers to enter the team" Anyone interested in playing can find all the info they need here http://www.bmgiants.com/
