The pilot reported that he was returning to a newly graded hard black soil strip at a muster camp. As the aircraft was turned at the end of the landing roll the nosewheel entered a pothole, causing the nosewheel yoke to break. The nose of the aircraft dropped and the tips of the propeller were bent on contact with the strip surface. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
