Patrick Campion, Chairman’s Message – November 2013

Posted on Tuesday, 5 November 2013

Trading Update

The performance of Gaming in the Club continues to improve with the new games and new technology recently introduced. It has trended upward consistently for several months now and it augers well for a good end of year result, after a slow start to the year. All Bank covenants continue to be met.

Airspace Development Update

Expressions of Interest (EOI) have now been received, following very positive publicity in the media and a strong and effective marketing campaign.

There are several companies that are capable of undertaking a development of the proposed scale, which have lodged an EOI and are now keen to negotiate further in what is a very competitive situation.
The Club’s team of experts will continue negotiations, and I propose to update members at a third Briefing Meeting in relation to the Airspace Development proposal at 6.45pm on Tuesday 10 December 2013 in the Celebrity Room at the Club’s premises at 194-204 Pitt Street, Sydney.
I encourage all members to attend.
Members wanting more information on this topic should visit the Club’s website.

City Tattersalls Club Race Day

On Saturday 19 October 2013, the City Tattersall’s Club held its annual Race Day at Randwick Race Course. A large number of members attended. A good time had by all with members enjoying the new grandstand and the wonderful new facilities.

City Tattersalls Club Badge Draw

I would like to congratulate Epeli Buarua Vualili, the lucky winner of our final Badge Draw who won $30,000 in cash on Thursday 29 August 2013. Following on from the excitement of this great night, a new Badge Draw has now commenced with four draws every week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6.30pm and 7.30pm. With more draws every week, you now have more chances to win but remember you must be present to win.

Employees of the 2nd Quarter 2013

The employees of the 2nd Quarter 2013 have been named. The winners for the Front and Back of House quarter were:

Front of House Mr William Corbett

Back of House Mr Geoffrey Jones

I congratulate the winners and all other employees who received nominations for these awards.

The Club Grants presentation was held on Friday 23 August 2013. This year there were 43 successful charities receiving a total of $340,000 with the City Tattersalls Club donating $251,201 through the Local Committee and a further $95,264 donated through the Club’s Committee.
