The Queen Charlotte ballfield is eroding away, but there may be some provincial money for repairs.
The Christmas Eve storm in 2003, which caused so much erosion all along the east coast, also cut into the banks around the Queen Charlotte ball field quite badly. Since then, the erosion has continued and the bank is now only 5 meters from the water and sewer lines, and the south east end of the field is right to the fence, area F director Carol Kulesha told the management committee Jan. 19.
Ms Kulesha investigated and found some money through the provincial emergency program for repairs. The program will pay for 80-percent of the project, less a $1000 deductible. A the repairs are estimated to cost $13,000. The community club is checking its finances to see if it can find the rest.
Member Ron McKee suggested making an application to the Gwaii Trust, but none of the members of the committee felt they had the time.
