Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing and Coursing Club Inc. president John Woodland’s report to members at last Sunday’s Annual General Meeting at Tara Raceway focused on a year of achievement.
He made special mention of a major upgrade to the kennel house and how no race meetings were lost while the upgrade was being undertaken. He also paid special thanks to the people who had been involved with the project.
The president also mentioned other projects that were undertaken during the year, including Fairthorne Forestry as the club’s major sponsor, the placement of a defibrillator in the clubrooms, the sale of greyhound accessories in the club office on race days and as a further promotion tool the maintaining of a Facebook page.
New races were introduced, including the Tara Trackstar and the Border Challenge (Mount Gambier v. Warrnambool), prices have been obtained for the erection of cover over the outdoor settings and club shirts with the MGGRC logo are now available at the track.
The Brook Group has been asked to provide Greyhound Racing SA with a proposal to install a computer for trial days at Tara Raceway. This would broadcast trial times onto on-course televisions in the kennel house, clubrooms and starting box televisions. It would also allow for a printout of each trial session.
And while Noel Perry has now taken over as MGGRC president for 2019-2020, the outgoing president can be well satisfied with his year at the helm.
