Late February and early March saw an unprecedented amount of rain fall in the catchment areas of the Wilson River on the Northern Rivers of NSW. The highest flood level previously was 12.17m back in 1974, this year the flood level reached a devastating level of 14.36m, destroying thousands of homes (last count was just under 3000)

Our club, located on the fringe of the CBD was inundated by 7m of flood water, which literally destroyed everything the club owned and had accumulated over its 18 years of operation.
