2021 Floods at Hart Field
The floods this year have been more devastating than the 2019 floods and the field was possibly 5 metres under water. It was above the flagpoles and to the base of the security cameras. The only missing piece of equipment so far is the water tank. The security light in the covered area is water damaged and will need repairing/replacement. The Weather station was out of the water but the communications drivers were submerged and not functioning.

Hart Field Enhancements
March 2021 update: – Slab approved and contractor engaged.
Rain and flooding have put a temporary halt to the slab being constructed
Next steps are to confirm the PCC’s engineering approval of reinforcing prior to pouring the concrete. This slab will be a 6m x 4m extension on the eastern end of the existing shelter slab and allow for a hard surface upon which a BBQ can be placed.
This was an item raised for consideration at the AGM and I think members are unanimous in their support for the club purchasing a defibrillator unit. Craig Chaffey has kindly taken this on and we are in the process of submitting a funding grant proposal to NSW Sport who can subsidise part of the cost of the unit to a value of $1250.00. Suitable units are approximately $2,500 to $3,500 and we are working with a supplier linked to the grants scheme to assist in the acquisition of this important item. Upon purchase and install, we will run a tutorial at the club to demonstrate the operation of the unit to members.
PEMAC Weather Station
The Weather Station has been removed until further notice due to flood damage
The club has recently purchased a 4g based weather station that will be installed on our security tower in the coming weeks. This also will act as a WIFI hub so the club has the option to install additional security features in the future. Access to real time weather station data will be via a simple hyperlink available on the clubs website. Daryll Lundie has kindly volunteered his time and efforts into getting this project up an running and continues to be our security and technologies go to guy. Thanks Daryll for your continued efforts. It is greatly appreciated.
