  2. If you out driving, you shouldn't be looking anyway that's why ditching radio is the biggest blunder made
  3. Do you spend more money or just shuffle from another bet type?
  4. I dont think you read my post either! I was only talking about the representatives voted on to the "Conference". It was you that brought up (and you probably did too) Sausage Rolls. But I wont say any more as you would only twist that too.
  5. Tasman - I am a member of 2 clubs, not one!! I have not served on any sub-committees at either. But back in the "good old days" I did help with tasks on an unpaid, voluntary basis. You know, those days when money was not a requirement for knowledge.
  6. Maybe I should stand for the Club Committee Mike but at my age I really don't want a poisoned chalice. Yes Stables you are right - most of the positions on both Club and National Boards are elected unapposed after being "selected" by the incumbents to fill any vacancies that occur and I am sure Mike is well aware of this. I'll stop at the lawn surrounding the car park thank you!
  7. Unfortunately while it is the clubs that vote for the executive those in the clubs who decide who to vote for are the clubs own executives and not the club members. In today's electronic age surely the clubs should circularise their members to see who the members want to be on the board and vote accordingly. But of course that would be against the rules of the breakfast club wouldn't it. Perhaps members should query their boards on this matter at their club's next AGM.
  8. Yes and later raced grass at Hastings. Once the area closed down racingwise the number of trainers in the area diminished to now being non existent and the Bay punters lost interest in harness. Many stories can be told of the pilgrimages to the HB

    3 more covid cases from India this time. 1 woman 'escaped" from lockdown. Will only take one incident and we will get a relapse like (e.g.) Victoria has got. Should we continue to handle this coming home situation in the present way or for the sake of saving lives should we just get tough! Is humanitarianism of citizenship more or less important than human life?
  10. Stables - stick to your horses - there were plenty of Roman Sandals outside Ellerslie at the demonstration!
  11. I think you right but they do have a Facebook page

    Bloody hell Phil

    Six venues with no racing - three of them from Taranaki. You would think these closures would be spread over the country - but no, someone said lets hit the Naki. First it was Hawkes Bay, then Wellington city, then Northland and now another region is committed to the scrap heap. Let's hope Ken gets the humpty this year and the new board can see the folly of the present administration and set it right without delay. p.s. you will note all of these are North Island centres!!
  13. Looks like Taranaki is a dirty word. No Hawera, no Stratford, no New Plymouth. This area (from a punting perspective) will join the Hawkes Bay
  14. Obviously the "sale" got too hot for Winny
