Eidsvold Race Club re-signs com­mit­tee

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - — Philippe Co­querand

THE Eidsvold Race Club held its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing where mem­bers voted to keep the cur­rent com­mit­tee, in an ef­fort to en­sure the upcoming races were a suc­cess.

The trea­surer Au­drey Doyle, sec­re­tary Lori Mur­ray and pres­i­dent Lyle Mur­ray all re­tained their roles for the 2017-2018 year and were op­ti­mistic the Fe­bru­ary 17 races would be bet­ter than ever.

Mr Mur­ray said the com­mit­tee had con­cerns ear­lier this year re­gard­ing how dry the field was but said the club did well all the same.

“Whilst there were con­cerns lead­ing up to the race day about the hot weather, the day was ex­tremely well sup­ported by the pub­lic and spon­sors, all of whom en­joyed a great day of coun­try rac­ing,” he said.

Mr Mur­ray said the club had sev­eral up­grades planned for next year.

“Next year will be dif­fer­ent with a cou­ple of projects in the pipe­line, the con­struc­tion of a new horse hose-down area and con­struc­tion of a roof be­tween the bar and grand­stand,” he said.

“The ex­tra shade be­tween the bar and grand­stand will free up a cou­ple of mar­quees to be used as other ar­eas.”

The club had a profit of $6158 for last year’s financial year.

The Eidsvold races will take place next year on Fe­bru­ary 17. Keep an eye on cen­tral­north bur­nett­times.com.au for de­tails about the event as they emerge.
