Just got back from a visit to Manly to see family, on the trip home I decided to check out what is happening to Brookie. I stood on the hill and remembered some of the things I'd seen over the years. It was strange to be the only one there. There are a few bindi's on the hill, but it looks pretty plush, and so does the playing surface. Plenty of weeds growing under the seating on the eastern side. I also had to do some weeding around my paving block. The paver area looked a little sub-par, which was slightly disappointing for a new initiative, I'd hoped it would be maintained and look good year round. Oh well I guess they'll clean it up for next season. Bit hard to see exactly what work is being done. The roof is off the Jany Try, but nothing was happening while I was there. However everything - including all the seating - in all the stands is covered by giant tarps. Anyone know what that is for? It looks weird and I can't guess the purpose. It's like a big secret!
