Upcoming Race Meetings

Good News!!! With the changes in covid policy by the NSW Government the Moruya Jockey Club will be able to increase its capacity to 2000 for the Saturday 3rd April Easter Cup meet. Members are now fine to present their Membership card at the gate for entry with Tickets for General Admission soon to be available through Local Tickets. Tickets will also be available at the gate however to ensure you do not miss out should we reach the 2000 capacity it is recommended to book your ticket online. The Members will have their own bar in the Sponsors area as the Members room at this stage will still be used by the Jockeys with members to be notified should there be any changes to this.

A Message from the Chairman

Many are asking why the Members’ area is not available to Members and when will access be granted.

Covid-19 is the reason. Racing NSW stipulated that four separated areas must be provided for jockeys, two for men and two for women, and further stipulated that Covid distancing and hygiene rules must apply. The area on ground level which normally houses male and female jockeys is simply not large enough, and the Members area is the only suitable area close enough to the stewards’ room to enable the correct race meeting supervision of jockeys by the stewards to be enforced.

The Board and our new Executive Officer Ken Brown made the Sponsors’ area near the Rotary kiosk available to Members last meeting and this arrangement will continue. In good weather, more seating and tables will be provided in front of that area for Members. The Board is considering several options, some temporary and some permanent to overcome the jockey housing problem, and I will keep you informed.

The extensions to the Members have been delayed by planning difficulties, some relating to the new fire safety requirements under state government control, but most to local council issues. Brian Cowden and now Ken, have worked  very hard with our architect Mike Hallahan who has done a remarkable job for us, to expedite approvals, but do not hold your breath.

You now understand that the Board can give no indication of when the Members will be available for your use, but be assured it is making every effort to ensure that your day at the races is as enjoyable as possible. Next meeting is on Easter Saturday. See you there.

Peter Atkinson.
