The recent weather events over Coffs Harbour have caused significant problems at the Dairyville Range.
Accordingly, events will be cancelled until the area is made safe and functional.
In the coming weeks all members will be asked to help with the repair of the range. This will include the moving of rocks, soil, fallen trees and the repair of the roads.
Please note that the dirt road to the range has also been damaged and will need to be repaired.
