Members Bonus, Branch Attendance Scheme

April 2018


Members Branch Attendance Bonus Scheme

The Members’ Branch Attendance Bonus Scheme draw took place at Wentworth Park Saturday night, April 7, 2018, with the winner drawn being Glen Jones from City-Parramatta Branch. 

As Glen had not attended a Branch meeting in the month of March, he was not eligible for the bonus. 

Remember Members, make sure you attend your Branch meetings. You have a chance every month to win the $500 bonus which is drawn at Wentworth Park on the first Saturday meeting of every month.

 The City-Parramatta Branch this month will also receive $100 for being the association Branch with the drawn member. It is the Association's belief this incentive will encourage the Branch to recruit members to meetings and generally. The more members, the greater chance the Branch has to be drawn!



Well done to all who received an award at the branch presentation night for 2017.  Training honours went to Anne Kada and Tony Pagano while Les Horner and Cheryl Betts took out the owner/trainer sections.  I was the proud recipient of owner and breeding honours.  Country greyhound went to Diane Wells, quinella greyhound went to Les Horner.  Cheryl Betts had two of the three finalists taking out the greyhound of the year with Pursayis.  A big thanks to our MC Gary Clark and to Coleen Abella and all our sponsors.


Come along to our next branch meeting and put in your points on Sunday 15th at the Richmond race club upstairs in the function room commencing at 7pm.  Visitors are welcome.  After the meeting we will have our raffle followed by a light supper.  Members are reminded that a plate would be appreciated.

Auburn-Lidcombe Branch Members and Guests enjoyed a wonderful night at Wentworth Park on Easter Egg Night.  Presentation winners on the night were Jimmy Vassallo, Mick Jenner and Lionel Hobbs.  Of course, the night would not have been so successful without the generosity of sponsors Silkari, Pet 2000, Real Pet Foods and Hidez who provided many prizes for the presentation and raffle winners.
