Warwick Turf Club door open for new members
RACING: The Warwick Turf Club always has the door open for members who want to be part of the racing fraternity in Warwick.
Membership of the club entitles members to free admission for them and one guest to each club race meeting, as well as reciprocal rights to a number of clubs in southern Queensland.
Annual membership is $75 and a member and guest who attends all meetings will save $145 a year in gate charges. The club has eight meetings in the current racing year which ends on June 30.
Eight meetings have been allocated for 2017-2018 racing year, including two TAB meetings, the Warwick Credit Union Warwick Cup on the second Saturday of October and Boxing Day.
The Warwick Turf Club is keen to encourage new members from across the region with Allman Park now the venue for the annual Allora and Killarney cup meetings.
The new pavilion, which holds 600 people, is available for hire. The pavilion has already been used for the Warwick Picnic Races, the cup meeting in October and Boxing Day, as well as for a wedding. Two birthday parties are booked for March.
Phone Warwick Turf Club secretary Kristen Doyle on 46611023 to book.
The club is always keen to attract more volunteers, some of whom serve on the committee which meets monthly to run the club.
The next race meeting is the St Mary's School Warwick Race Day on February 18, then sponsored race days on April 1, May 13 (Ergon Energy day) and the Killarney Cup on June 17.
