Why would you even listen to him, he hates everything about Racing because he’s a nobody in the game.

There are NO smart people and there’s NO such analysis.

How was your dinner at HQ ?

Crap.  Wouldn't go again.  Used serviettes on the seats.  Dirty table and a poor attempt at nouveau cuisine copied from Master Chef.

Demonstrates how much you don’t know about yet another subject :) 

Well the person I went with is a qualified chef and has owned restaurants.  She enjoyed her first visit with friends but the second fell well short.  As you said "It's only a pop up".

Most likely the company she was with, first visit with joyful cheery people, 2nd visit with you.

Actually no.  Unlike many she forms her own opinion.  I suspect the first visit was luck.

Fishing or down the mine??  Either way Peters won't give a damn--just tell me ONE thing he has done for the betterment of the country rather than his self interest. ( And don't bother regurgitating the Wine Box)

I stand to be corrected Chevy but from memory NZ First (Winston) and Labour introduced Kiwi Saver which in my opinion is probably one of the most significant  pieces of legislation introduced in the last 40 years. National who believe in  the individual doing his / her own thing oppossed it because they had National Super introduced by one of their own, Rob (The Socialist ) Muldoon.

You got some nerve...P4P puts up a $100 voucher for the cafers benefit by all accounts from those who won it was a great night and P4P was a great host and they got far more than the $100 worth of fun, and you rubbish him and his restaurant...you should be saying thank you as without this type of generous offer we don't get to run comps and attract interest..no more...thanks...keep your personal issues or problems you may have to yourself.

Drawing a long bow there Bloke. Peters had nothing to do with initiating/progressing/fostering the scheme.I believe It was Cullen's baby and Peters as usual just went along for the ride. (and the whiskey). And Flagship, Anderton's baby was Kiwibank!

Ok as I said I stand to be corrected but it was the Labour / NZ First Coalition that introduced it.

I thought that your problem was that they didn’t serve “Chip on the Shoulder”.

Oh well, I thought that the place was bloody fantastic.

And you haven't been to the pop up.  Actually most of Leo's latest enterprises have been pop ups!

Where should an all-weather track be sited? If it's a new site, will it be away from larger population centres so hard to support regular meetings? The lure of a good track in Winter doesn't match the disadvantages of distance, poor facilities, poor catering and average racing.

Impractical to consider it as a replacement venue for abandoned meetings , as a few days notice would be required, whereas meetings can be abandoned during race days. Might it end up as a venue for industry days, attended only by those who have to be there? Closing surplus courses (a sensitive subject) would give it good usage but other things need to be improved to get punters on the course.
