Members and Patrons

The committee would like to join Erin and Chris Cameron in celebrating their 17th wedding anniversary. Both do a lot for the club and their input is greatly appreciated. Since Erin joined the committee she has focused on lifting the image of the club and the industry using mainly Facebook.  She has recently taken on the role of Treasurer and is managing casual staff and their rosters. Chris is always available when not working to complete the ever growing list of “things to do” that Erin is the editor of.

A happy birthday to Rex Marshall who despite the passing years continues to produce dogs that race well at Capalaba. All the best Rex.

We have had correspondence from the insurance this week making an offer for settlement. President John Catton has written back debating the issue of their valuation of the site which includes pathways, fencing and landscaping. Our view is that these items should not be part of the valuation as they cannot be destroyed by fire only flood or earthquake for which the company won’t insure us.

David Rowan from Racing Queensland visited the club this week looking at the upgrade of our equipment for radio TAB. We continue to progress towards a day when we can announce our elevation to TAB status.

Trainer’s memberships are overdue. The committee are working on rewards for members each month but to be eligible you must be financial at the start of that month. More news soon.

Tim Sauer from G.J. Walsh spent Thursday at the club doing the annual audit as required by the Office of Fair Trading. The AGM has been tentatively set for 29th September following the last race.

Alternatively, membership can be paid at the trials or on race day at the bar. EFTPOS is available.

There will be new incentives for the 2018/19 financial years with opportunities for members only.

The club will return to racing 28th July. Racing Queensland has confirmed that we now have a contract to become a TAB track and are waiting on SKY to complete the installation of their equipment.

Becoming a member now will have great advantage for the future. Once we have established ourselves as a TAB track we will be pursuing the expansion of our race days. There is no reason that once we are established that we cannot sustain at least two meetings a week.

Our track is unique (grass, drag lure, lure in the middle) and is visually spectacular, making it an attraction to viewers and punters. The committee will provide punters and patrons the opportunity to bet on races that are relatively trouble free on a track renowned for fewer injuries. A track that by its very nature addresses the industry policy of animal welfare.

Membership forms have been emailed and they are available on our Website https://www.capalabagreyhounds.com/membership_application_2… and also at the Bar - You can email your completed form and payment advice to accounts@capalabagreyhounds.com
