Nematodes have invaded the pitch at Steel Blue Oval. These are a microscopic round worm that attacks the roots of plants and inhibits growth.
How does this effect the AFD??
Town of Bassendean Rangers are keen to restrict this parasite to Steel Blue Oval and do not want to import any more of the little critters, thus they require every vehicle to be washed down entering and exiting the oval. The AFD committee have now made arrangements for this to happen for the 2011 show.
How does this effect Entrants and Traders?
All it will mean is you will need to drive through a puddle going on and off the oval. This will be done at a walking pace so that water to restrict water movement and reduce splashing. It should not impact on the time it takes to get vehicles onto the oval.
