The club takes great pleasure in announcing a major structural change that has just commenced.
you are aware, we had issues in our current canteen with the rangehood above the chip fryer constantly failing due to excessive heat. ( and we ALL love our chips, especially crinkle cut!!! )
This was caused by the rangehood not being high enough due to
the low unpitched roof. Cost to replace the roof and rangehood were considered to be better spent on re-locating the canteen inside the WINNERS CIRCLE rooms.
The Winners Circle has a higher roof,
and pitched which meets all the requirement for the new rangehood, already purchased.
So work has already started on turning the bar area into a new canteen. Life member Les Blechynden has generously
undertaken the works programme at cost. There are benefits in that the freezer can now run off the existing solar system, rather than having to wait until our generator was operational. Further, Lyn now doesnt have to constantly take food to and from the canteen
each race day.
The trophy display cases have already been removed and will be installed in the Les Blechynden Room. This room will also see some upgrades in the current months.
There will need to be some smaller restriction on the permitted smoking area between the Winners Circle and the control tower.
The current canteen ( old canteen
) will now be used as a storeroom, allowing the current small storeroom to be converted to a shower stall.
Other options will be to use the old canteen as another corporate box during state
or national titles.
The club also has another interesting development in place and this will be announced very soon.
track is holding up extremely well despite the heavy rainfall recently. This is the result of the major works programme last year, when we installed the infield drainage system.
We wish to express
our gratitude to Ben Higgs, Travis and the family for the generous donation of clay and other construction material. Ben has also spent a lot of time carting in the clay, and spreading it onto the track. John Alford will integrate it into the current surface
as weather conditions allow.
Some big things happening at the best club in AUS!
Dont forget the busy bee on Saturday June 27th, 9am.
WEST OZ.... LEADING THE WAY!!
