In the Gender Equality Report for 2016-17, they clearly state that the reason that they do not have female Directors is that they recruit their Directors via Directors Australia (refer answers to questions 2.1d, 2.1g, 2.2 and 2.3 in the Gender Equality Questionairre)

That response sounds nonsensical to me.

  :lol:

I was thinking that without saying it.

Can I send my resume into Director's Australia and get a seat on one of these boards? Is that all you have to do  :what:

BRC applies for heritage exemption
6 hours ago by AAP
 The Eagle Farm racecourse is heritage listedImage: News Corp
Brisbane Racing Club chairman Neville Bell has emphasised the club has applied only to lift heritage listing on a small section of Eagle Farm racecourse.

The BRC has applied to delist sections of the racecourse land from the Queensland Heritage Register to make it possible for the future works on the club's master plan expansion.

The plan includes a shopping centre and residential unit towers.

Bell said the club had already undergone an extensive process to comply with heritage listing rules.

He said when the racecourse was originally heritage listed it was a sweeping order which covered the whole area and some of the houses the club owned in an adjacent street.

Bell said the club would not try to lift the heritage listing from the vast majority of the racecourse.

"We are obviously keen to have heritage listing on the racecourse as it covers the actual track, grandstands and the front gates,etc" he said.

"But for some areas it isn't necessary or practical."

Bell said the current application sought to delist four lots from the south-east corner of the track near the Gallopers Sports Club and around to front Nudgee Rd.

"I can assure you it is not a application to lift the overall heritage listing or any major part of it," he said.Ends

Some sceptics think Nifty is trying to pull a fast one ...hardly likely just a section in the SE corner Heritage Council don't know anything much about that body.

Sunday Mail has extensive spread on the Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival put together by Nathan Exelby after this mammoth effort Nathan could be eligible for compo if he got RSI Repetitive Strain Injury out of it ......one picture shows sections of the public on the lawn at Eagle Farm one of whom has a bookies bag the name on it is obscured but judging by the style  hats being worn my guess it could be in the 20's.

Nathan excelled hisself  in  his Ipswich Cup day promotion describing travelling to Bundamba racecourse which is before you get to Ipswich if coming from Brisbane  "the scenic surrounds of Ipswich provide a relaxed change of pace ,although the racing is still top shelf"

Mekka Raceday a big boost to Brisbane Racing Club’s bottom line
Nathan Exelby, The Courier-Mail
August 15, 2018 6:30pm
 
THERE’S no big-name horses, members steer clear and the money on offer is minimal, but that doesn’t stop Brisbane’s Mekka Wednesday being one of the biggest events on the ¬annual racing calendar.

The turnstiles clicked over 13,500 patrons at Doomben on Wednesday, with 10,500 of those registered as pre-bookings and the vast majority being students.

Brisbane Racing Club chairman Neville Bell noted that excluding members, that number is the equal of Stradbroke day and the third biggest on the racing calendar. While it’s an event that few hardened racegoers attend, it has become a day that is ¬crucial to the BRC’s coffers.

“It’s an important day for the club with regards to our finances,” Bell said.

“Importantly, the day is maintaining its popularity with the younger crowd.

“It seems to be timed well for the university students, which make up a big percentage of the crowd.

“It’s at a time where they can have a party and let their hair down before getting serious about end-of-year exams.

“We don’t pretend it’s a racing crowd that come here on this day, but it was encouraging to see the grandstand about two-thirds full during a few of the races, which means they are taking an interest in the racing.”

The day has become a tamer affair than in years gone by, particularly when it was known as “dollar day” at its outset more than a decade ago.

On Wednesday there was 140 ¬security staff and 40 police ¬officers on course as part of the strict conditions needed to host such an event.

On the track, David Vandyke’s blistering recent form continued with a winning double.

The promising Baccarat Baby made it four wins on end when comfortably claiming the 3YO Benchmark 65, before The Mechanic landed some good bets in the Class 4 Handicap.

Vandyke has trained nine winners from his past 18 runners.

The opening winner on Mekka Wednesday was the aptly named hot favourite Meccabah, a former European-based mare who broke her maiden at start No. 2 in Australia.

!3,500 payers would fill the till very nicely but the very high cost of security plus 40 cops on specials overtime rates  would diminish the returns somewhat....and what does that say...these patrons can't be trusted to behave themselves and they're not much interested much in racing.........the guvment regulations office of liquor and gaming whatever it's called big brother.
