A schedule of works have now been prepared for the track renovation at Maitland. The scope of works currently is expected to run 14/1/16 - 18/1/16.

The scope of works has been developed following a site inspection on Monday,  January 11, which found medium to high levels of rock contaminating the racing surface. As a result the original scope of works expected to commence at the start of the week had to be revisited.

This has now been undertaken with machinery and contractors now booked in.

Further, a final review of electrical damage from the storms two weeks ago is to be included in the works project.

On this basis, trials Monday, January 18 have been cancelled, with a trial session has been added Tuesday, 19/1/16 from 5pm. Tickets will go on sale at 4.30pm.

Further information can be obtained from the Club, the NSW GBOTA is sorry for the inconvenience caused to participants. We are aware of the particular frustration of Hunter Valley participants and working hard to ensure the best and safest outcome for all involved.

Participants are reminded that nominations for the meeting, Thursday, January 21 will close this coming Monday, January 18 at 9am with GRNSW. Advertised events are shown below.
