Broom Lake Track Closure
The track around Broom Lake has been closed to vehicles to prevent any further damage being caused.  Members have been driving off the track causing deep ruts.  Some areas of the Type 1 have also become soft where the ground has become waterlogged.  It is anticipated the track will remain closed until the spring when the ground has dried out sufficiently so that a work party can been undertaken to repair the damage.
We would also remind all members to ensure the new gate at the bottom of the track leading to Broom Lake and the Alcove Syndicate is left closed and locked at all times.  The gates are there to secure our fisheries from unwanted visitors.  Members failing to close and lock this (and any other fishery gate) will be reported to the committee and can expect to receive disciplinary action.
