ACUSA Park WORKING BEE UPDATE
Update from the ACUSA Park committee and their band of volunteers.
Another huge effort was made again by a great bunch of volunteers that attended over the March Long Weekend. Thank you to everyone for your time and there were some massive achievements made.
The old fence has been removed from the dirt track and the post holes have been dug ready to replace it. Loose tyres off the motocross tracks are being removed and placed on to the outer edge of the dirt track ready to be made into a safety tyre wall. Two new junior training tracks have been constructed on the western end of track 2 (the old pits) and post holes have also been dug ready for a new fence.
A new creek crossing has been constructed on track 2 making it wider and safer while also opening up the creek flow. Thanks to some great support from companies and individuals that donated machinery over the weekend track 2 has some new dirt on it ready to be spread out, track 1 has had a creek crossing widened and the trail loop received some much needed attention and re-instating.
A new announcing tower & scoring facility has been located at the dirt track with fencing re designed to allow longer run off areas. A loading ramp has been constructed and was successfully used throughout the weekend. A clean up of the property has also taken place and will continue on.
The men’s toilet block has been stripped bare inside and is now ready for a new kit out. This this scheduled for the Easter weekend if you would like to help. New signage for the entire property has been made and ready to be placed around the property.

So there is a lot happening and still more to do. The ACUSA Park Committee and Motorcycling SA are determined to get the park upgraded and will continue to improve it as much as possible going forward. This can only happen if the park is being used for Ride Days and also hired out, which creates revenue and that means more can be spent on the property for improvements. The first open to the public Ride Day for 2020 is scheduled for Sunday April 26th.
It’s important that we not only advertise the Ride Days but also get the word out that even though there has been some fire damage to the property it will be business as usual at the Park. Please feel free to pass this information on in preparation for the coming season.

Thanks again if you were one of the many that donated your time to the working bees, it’s been great to have your support again.
The next scheduled days are;
Sat. March 21st from 8.00am until noon. If you would like to continue on we will also be there throughout the weekend and we welcome anyone that wants to stay on and lend a hand. Camping is permitted and the BBQ will be available for all to use.
Easter weekend from Friday 10th April.
If you are available, we would sincerely appreciate a hand if only for a few hours. If you are able to bring a trailer, chainsaw and wire cutters, bolt cutters, fencing pliers etc. it would be handy but not essential. Also bring gloves and safety glasses, etc if you have them.
Coffee & tea will be supplied through the weekend.
