Greyhound club wins Statewide recognition
GRAFTON Greyhound Racing Club is one of three clubs recognised by the Board of Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) for outstanding achievement in 2005.
The Chairman of GRNSW, Prof Percy Allan AM, said that Grafton Greyhound Racing Club stood out as one of the best performers in 2005 on racing activity results, financial and operating standards compliance.
"The three results' areas of racing, finance and operations have been closely monitored for all clubs by management and the Board over the last 18 months," Prof Allan said.
"At each board meeting we obtain a full written report on each Club's progress on these fronts.
"Where the Board is either delighted or concerned about a clubs performance trend or one or more indicators, this has been brought to its attention by GRNSW.
"However, it is now time to stand back and single out those clubs that deserve a special meritorious mention based on all the monthly and quarterly data we have been watching."
Prof Allan said the Board of GRNSW congratulated the three clubs for their efforts, saying they have set a high benchmark.
"We hope they can continue to progress notwithstanding the difficult financial circumstances that we all face in 2006 and beyond," he said.
President of Grafton Greyhound Racing Club Des Winters attributed this award to a hard working and diligent committee combined with substantial efforts from all volunteers, who regularly volunteer to help in the day to day running of the club.
