Hello All,

I have again called Toowoomba Regional Council (“TRC”), and Deb at Park and Rec has just advised that Highfields is closed however Toowoomba including Gold Park and Upper Nell E Robinson Wanderers is OPEN!!

We will take a very cautious approach to All persons Safety & Welfare.  If we within 20kms of a Storm Cell I will send another e-mail that play is suspended or abandoned.

Refer the following – World Rugby Lightning Policy will be adhered to.

  1. https://www.tr.qld.gov.au/facilities-recreation/sport-recreation/fields-outdoor-recreation/1001-sports-fields-open
  2. http://www.bom.gov.au/places/qld/toowoomba/
  3. Higgins Storm Chasing

7:30am the overnight storms that developed inland tracked to the coast exactly as forecast… let’s call that the first wave .

Remember that SEVERE storms are expected this afternoon, tonight and tomorrow morning across SEQLD!

World Rugby Lightning Policy will be adhered to.

Regards,

 Matt Hammond | General Manager
