    A significant move to insignificance!
    The gallops in Vic have dozens and dozens of meetings where every race is worth $100k+ while SA Harness racing cannot afford a single race

    If champions are the best advertisement / promotion for a sport - chances of South Aussies seeing one, have been greatly reduced

    How about Dale Monteith recruits some of movers and shakers from his old code the gallops - the ones that have managed to raise the prizemoney for the Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate by $5,000,000 next year

    Kev not trying to teach anyone how to suck eggs but we are all knackered unless we promote. promote and promote as you have indicated. At the moment the mighty West Coast eagles sit atop of the AFL ladder and with a bye next week GP may have been able (with the 7 "P's") to have a few of the guys who may have an interest in racing come down. Meet say Nic Nat Luke Shuey etc have a meet and greet and if they book a meal in freds restaurant another promo re meals. lf price or whatever is a concern hire a media company where you only pay for results aftervthat blitz the media. Gee Whizz (Fizz liked him) the media officers need to extract the digit and think out of the box. As an aside wife likes the Pinjarra track and facilities; where we can park for free in the grounds, the meals are good and reasonable and where we observed most of the patrons are older and buses arrive bringing more of we old foggies. The boss so likes this track she is thinking of becoming a member and we live about 250 kms away. Now if they can bring in we oldies then surely some smarter than me whiz bang promo guru can get the younger folks in. Currently I have shares in a couple of pacers with only two of the partners under 40!!, As said no egg shells but its not rocket science!

    I like your thinking Jim. You raise some crucial objectives - promotions that result in media exposure and good meals are two important ones
