    This is where you will be going:

    Country Clubs - Best Presented Track/Venue: Stawell Harness Racing Club

    Lisa McIlvride: "We had a pretty rough go at Stawell for a little while and when we redid the track, it's just been amazing."

    This is a great deal, good to see them trying something new. The food is great at the bistro, I have had many meals there. Very tempting !
    Don't die wondering !

    Come on people - we have to make this happen!

    We need a few (couples?) to convince a another couple to join them on this incredible value weekend and a good time will be had by all!

    They need to know these numbers by Monday - so organize yourself over the weekend and decide "Yes, let's do it!"

    I already live here but if another club was running such an offer I would be there with bells on

    Sadly there is not much interest/money around in harness racing nowadays when this type of offer cannot get off the ground
    Cancelled.

    I think the fact that most people would have to take the Monday off work killed the offer. Just running a bus there and back on the Sunday would have been a better idea in my opinion .

    It was a good idea Kev but as Rick said perhaps two days was a bit much right off the bat. Maybe there’s time to rethink the idea as a one day trip and I think having a host to entertain and inform on the trip and track might help.

    That's a bit sad Kev. Considering it's $149 for a room (off peak) at Tabcorp Park for the night it would have to have been the best value trip ever.
