Members and racing participants.
History shows that when a track closes, it never reopens.
Cairns has a viable future, if promoted and managed correctly. It is an important cog in the wheel for QLD greyhound racing. We don’t have too many cogs left.
The antis are having a field day, touting this as further proof of a dying industry.
In reality, it is the lack of support from administrators. Greyhounds are the fastest growing code. They are the only profitable code. They are the code of choice by the young betting public.
We need to encourage new people in cairns and Townsville to take up training. There are many that wish to. Let us all get behind Cairns. This club cannot close. It needs support from all.
If Townsville think they can benefit from this , I believe that is short sighted. Who’s next? Bundaberg? Rally behind your code. Don’t leave it up to a few. Everyone that cares about our code should do the following.
Send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org and your local minister.
Send emails to Stirling hinchcliffe, your racing minister. Minister for Local Government, Racing & Multicultural Affairs: email@example.com
Keep all emails civil and to the point. Let them know in numbers how you feel.
This is not over.
