COVID Update and Cancellation of April Race Day

Hi everyone,

 
The APBA suspending all racing all over the country until the end of April. This will affect our race day on April 19th. We will turn the reserve race Day on the 14th June into a race day. 
 
We were planning to run the Graham Hull Invitational and Ray Johnson Memorial on this day and potentially could run these in June. The State Championships will be run in May. 
 
If our season does get suspended further, we will have no state champions and club champions will decided on current points up to the last race day. 
 
Our presentation night might also be affected also as well as our monthly meetings and AGM. We are looking at cancelling our Bogan Bingo event in June, so again, please kepp an eye out on emails/FB/website for updates. 
 
JSW King of the River has just been cancelled. The sprint car season has also been cancelled and we will wait to hear whether their presentation night will go ahead.
 
These few events are big fundraisers for the club and we rely on them. 
 
Next season will be vital in terms of fundraising efforts to make up for this season's shortfall and our next season's shortfall. 
 
If you or anyone of you know, do not want to partake in the rest of the season, I can completely understand.
 
We just have to treat this as a day by day, week by week scenario right now and I think that all of you are probably in the same situation. 
 
Again, if you have any comments, suggestions, please get in touch. 
 
Thanks
Ben

Cell Test - Cancelled and COVID 19 and the WASBC
Hi all,
 
As duty of care from the WASBC we have decided to cancel the cell test and scuba orientation tomorrow at Leisurefit Booragoon. The health and well being of our members is a very high priority to us. 
 
We will look to move the cell test to another time.
 
The committee will keep you up to date with regards to the 2 remainder races of the season and will follow DLGSC and Government advice with regards to these.
 
We are also looking to delay our major fundraiser event of the season, Bogan Bingo, that was scheduled for June. Fundraising efforts might switch to a trailer raffle, so please watch this space.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with me.
 
Thanks for you patience and understanding in these unchartered times.
 
Best regards,
Ben
