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.
