Can someone please explain to me why some people in business and in positions of power deem it necessary and acceptable to have hidden agendas, play Machiavellian games and become bullies?
Contrary to what is being dished up by the present ATC Chairman and Committee, there is a concerted effort to denigrate and force out a trusted, hardworking and loyal member of the ATC Management team.
No, Mr Chairman, I didn’t and don’t buy your comments at the ATC AGM.
You and your Committee lack credibility and gravitas.
I have to wonder what is the agenda for the sad, pathetic, quango appointed, aspiring Chairman, in this unsavoury matter ? You really are a grubby little person.
I’ll tell you one thing, Mr Chairman and Committee, I’d back the ability of the employee against the ability of you lot in running the ATC.
As I have said previously, the ATC is no longer a Club for Members.
In fact, as every day passes, it is more like a Statutory body and I won’t be surprised that the union of choice by staff is the PSA.
Seriously, where is the line between government, Racing NSW and the ATC ?
We seem to hear more from Racing NSW than our Club, the ATC, especially in the TVN matter.
Doesn’t the ATC still own 50% of TVN ?
Anyone thinking of becoming an ATC Member should ask themselves this: Are you prepared to become nothing more than a cash cow ?
I ask this in the light of being at Canterbury last Monday – Australia Day.
Members had to pay $10 per person for a seat in the Phar Lap Bar on the third floor. Members of the public, on the same floor, just metres away – free, gratis.
Interesting that the Membership Department is chasing 18 to 35 year olds. I suppose they have the disposable income. The downside is they use the race track as just another drinking hole and a parachute club. Then they get married, get a mortgage, have kids and the money dries up.
I cannot believe the latest rumour doing the rounds – that the ATC CEO hides in the bowels of the great white elephant at Royal Randwick to avoid being buttonholed by Members.
With Easter coming up, maybe instead of an Easter egg scavenger hunt, we could have an ATC Committeeman hunt. Don’t bother looking in the third floor of the white elephant or the Official Stand.
Good to see Domain Chandon Sparkling down from $49 to $42 on course. Would be better at an even $40. Now, if we could only get a reasonable red for, say, $25.
With the new Committee starting soon, it would be good if you didn’t have to put up with my rants. Don’t hold your breath.
Good luck and good punting.
