  1. Hi Leggy ,Karen Morton here ,I would have liked to ask why they would not encourage the likes of Omakau,Kurow ,wairoa and Poverty bay with more days when they are in areas with huge growing tourism the time of year means huge crowds and money for the industry.They are great tracks {wairoa would have been better with a bit more water kevin told the pres that]They are all great meetings run by neat passionate people,and it encouraged to grow the Industry. I am hoping kevin will go on counties committee we were told yesterday there was a hell of a stink at the track in the morning as no one was allowed to use course proper .there is a guy from south africa in charge and he did not know they do not use it. Also ask him why they don't add the 2000 to the seven thousand dollar races instead of adding to 20 thousand ones.

      Thanks Karen. I'll see what I can find out though I think both those issues might be more NZTR matters than NZRB ones.

  2. Hi Leggy

    I don't want to put this on the thread but my thinking if Reefton was to fold is that we remain an incorporated society but forgo our race meeting and maybe change our name to the Reefton Sports Park Inc.  We are then no longer a racing club so the Racing Act does not apply.  Our asset as I have said many times belongs to the people of Reefton not the NZ racing Industry and I am determined if the worst comes to the worst that the community will get the spoils.

    I might add I myself come from Greymouth so no benefit even indirectly to me.

    If however we had adopted that constitution it would be bloody hard to change it somewhere down the track

    It is a double edged sword in a lot of ways but as I said if those wankers in Petone were actually working for the industry you would not mind so much.

      Hi Brian:

      I'd forgotten about this. It didn't come from me. See the final section.

      Thanks Brian. Yes, I agree. Foxton probably likewise. Small fish and we don't own the land but there's half a mil or so in the bank. That will go to build a community building with help from Lotteries,  instead of a new stand so there'll be nothing left for the wankers to take. The community and other equestrian objectives in the constitution have sadly overtaken the racing ones to avoid the plunder. I'm hopeful that Avondale is smart enough to likewise outwit their cunning plans. What a waste of time and energy though and so sad that they have focused us on preserving community assets for the community rather than the investment in racing that is so needed.

      Cheers,
