Mafeking Rover Park has many assets including Lake Surfmoot, a purpose built lake used for the 1999 Yea Moot. Over the last decade, while facing a massive drought across the country, the water level has dropped to merely a puddle. We had to come up with an action plan, as we couldn't see The Moot being successful without the Lake full of water. We approached the Surfmoot committee to help with the restoration and they were happy to donated $20,000 to fix the problem. This would be done over two phases; first phase was to dig 400 meters of trenching and connect pipes from the bore to the dam so we could have water running into the dam to fill it up. The second phase was to lay bentonite clay to slow down the evaporation process thus hopefully keeping the dam full once we filled it with water.
It's taken a lot of hard work but we are excited to see the lake full and ready for The Moot!Sun, 7 August 2016
