An army of volunteers descended on the Fairview Mountain Golf Course in Oliver on Wednesday to finish off cleanup efforts after a destructive mudslide struck more than two weeks ago.

General Manager Brian McDonald (who can be seen working with the volunteersin the centre of the accompanying picture using the red-handled rake ) said the mudslide occurred overnight on March 23. 

It spread at least 2,000 yards and covered five holes. “The damage was extensive,” McDonald said. “There was a lot of debris here. In the end it was over 3,000 cubic tonnes that had to be removed from the site.”
