They are talking about having a State of Origin game in Townsville . .

Why not have the Winter Carny in N Qld?

MKY track hasn't missed a beat, and TVILL going OK as well . . perhaps not as well as we thought

And the weather  :no1:

BRC decision to suspend new applications for membership seems strange...Neville Bell's explanation doesn't make sense ...knocking back prospective members is unheard of.......... most clubs are desperate  to enroll new members..

Giddy Up :beer:

Perhaps he is mindful of what happened in TWBA . .

BUT . . on the other hand

A "cushion" at E-F has a bit of a ring to it  :whistle:

Anything coming up that requires a vote by 'members'?

The BRC's decision does seem odd. And Neville Bell's defence of the decision seems even odder. It is virtually an admission that current members haven't received and won't receive 'value' for their membership fee unnecessarily opening the door for even more criticism and conjecture. Maybe even claims for a discounted membership or a rebate on last year's fees may be sought given the defence offered. From my point of view I hold memberships at a few race clubs as a show of support for the sport I love and to be honest I don't really expect too much in return. However I do expect the clubs to be managed as best they can be by an experienced hardworking committee. I have no doubt the BRC committee are experienced hardworking people but whether the current issues facing the club have been well managed will no doubt be in member's minds come voting time. As for rumours of an attempted coup there has been enough bad news and controversy to fuel that fire and I'm sure the sitting committee members up for re-election will be a tad nervous. At the end of the day I honestly don't care who's in charge and who's not as like everyone else I just want Eagle Farm back in it's place as QLD's number one racetrack. And an honest assessment of how Eagle Farm and the BRC got to this point prior to the election would be more than welcomed. As for the decision to put a membership suspension in place  - Silly comes to mind!
