BRIGADOON 2 APRIL 2022
A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
THIS MORNING AN INSPECTION WAS UNDERTAKEN OF THE BUNDANOON OVAL AND PRECINCTS WITH A WINGECARRIBEE COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVE. THE GROUND HAS BEEN VERY BADLY AFFECTED BY THE PAST AND PRESENT ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS TO THE EXTENT THAT IT WAS FELT THAT UNFORTUNATELY WE HAD NO OTHER OPTION BUT TO POSTPONE BRIGADOON AGAIN.
THE COMMITTEE ARE DEEPLY CONSCIOUS OF THEIR DUTY OF CARE TO THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELLBEING OF EVERYONE WHO ATTENDS BRIGADOON.
WE ALSO HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CARE AND PRESERVATION OF THE OVAL AND THE PRECINCTS, AND WITH THE PRESENT GROUND CONDITIONS THE POSSIBLE DAMAGE CAUSED COULD MAKE THE AREA TOTALLY UNMANAGEABLE FOR SOME CONSIDERABLE TIME. THIS IS SOMETHING WE ARE NOT PREPARED TO CONDONE.
WE APOLOGISE FOR THE LATE NOTIFICATION BUT THE WEATHER BEAT US
BRIGADOON WILL RISE AGAIN, AND THE COMMITTEE IS LOOKING AT A NEW DATE LATER IN THE YEAR.
