No, no.  I spend some time at home occasionally - and Doomben of course.

Mono

He gets my park at Doomben in a couple of weeks.  I am going to put some nails in the space before I leave though.

From QRL Chairman:

15 April 2009

Metropolitan racing master plan

The chairman of Queensland Racing Limited (QRL), Mr Bob Bentley, today commended the initiatives demonstrated by the board of the Brisbane Racing Club (BRC) to outline their master plan for the development of the existing facilities at the Eagle Farm and Doomben precincts.

“The board of the BRC has the support of QRL to further develop the concept of this most exciting project for metropolitan racing,” said Mr Bentley.

Mr Bentley went on to outline that the board was keen to obtain a better understanding of the economics of the project and to this end, look forward to receiving an outline of the funding model as soon as it becomes available.

I was highly delighted until I read the last paragraph above. Is there no end to this, i would have thought the brain's trust at the new BRC which devised the plan had all the boxes ticked. Looks like they have to hand in their asignments for correction by the headmaster.

good ole bumbling bob.....the bloke that was gunna sell both tracks=failed
the bloke that was take dates from doomed-ben and sell it=failed
the very same idiot that has put over 5 mil into benthead parl{caloundra}
the same idiot that is putting over 6 mil into the divided woomba
the same idiot that has offered nothing to gold coast except a sale and a track in a swamp
so what a surprise he is supportive and looking forward to see the funding model?
will he have any left to tip into the major metro world class tracks he attempted to close and failed after he squanders stakeholders futures to the tune of 20 mil at bent-wad{wadham} park for his country training facilty with 150 stables and a rocky past
bob and qrl the joke continues

BRC Chairman Kevin Dixon has already indicated that the project is self-sustaining, requiring no grants from external sources.

Looks like a move of the 1000m shute and the home turn DD  :what:

Like the idea of moving the race day stalls ;)

Looks Ok to me although the plan doesn't show barrier positions and the existing short course shute looks different.... better or worse?

The race day stalls are they being restored to the rear of the existing betting ring where they used to be when I was a boy? And any improvements to the betting ring  planned ?

Reading Thenamy's post Readers'comments Scott seems to think there's going to be a housing commission ghetto.Can't have that. emthdown emthdown

Bob's comments are what should be expected He wants to see the detail and so he should.  emthup

We don't want another BrisCon. :clap2:

The 1000 m chute has been moved west, and comes onto the course proper at a sharper angle.  This means a greater part of the race is run on a bend.  The home turn has been extended to the east a tad, thereby lengthening the straight.

Re-configuring the 1000m start allows the land area on the Nudgee Rd-Mein St corner to be better utilised.  Current thoughts are for a licensed club, including Hamilton Bowls Club.

In the back straight, the 1600 m start will be in the north-west corner, with a straight run then to the 1000 m turn.  The 1400m start will be on the same straight run.

Note that the construction of three tunnels removes the need for any track crossing by horse, humans, or vehicles.

One tunnel is on the plans for Dbn.

On the surface this all appears promising DD.

Tunnels have got to be a step in the right direction eliminating the dreaded crossings.

In your view will it be better for QLD racing & trainers in general?

After reading this I have to give it the thumbs up  emthup

Very comprehensive outline   emthup

 Maybe a bit ambitious expecting to get the green light for an hotel unless its low rise which probably woudn't be viable commercially and locals mightn't be too keen .

Seeing Campbell Newman all smiles on the TV news tonight might be a sign of spadework done. :rolleyes:
No need for Sciacca and Mackenroth while he's in the chair. :clap2:

One thing missing is refurbishing the toilets at EF they are shocking imo emthdown

All sounds very positive and hope I'm still around to see it's completion in 10 -15 years.

Wonder how many of the present BRC committee will be a part of the deal when its all finished?

dd I'd expect your privy to what's happening on the first race day of the BRC?  

It would be nice to see a race named in honour of Jimmy Atkins which could be programmed in every year at about the same date as the official first race meeting.

With the official date being 4th July ( American Independance Day) there would have to be Fireworks.
