The club has decided to upgrade the infield on the main diamond with drainage, resurfacing and new turf, This comes at a considerable cost to the club. To offset the cost we need your help in supplying the labour. This is a huge job that will happen over a 4 week period. The working bees will be a single day on each of the weekends to maximise our chances of everyone turning up. The schedule is as follows.
