On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to update you on the recent discussions held by the Board with regards to membership at NJC.
As you would be aware, membership renewals fall due on 30 June 2020. Under usual circumstances the staff of NJC would be preparing to send out renewals to you all now, however we are living in times never seen by our club before and as such, the Board has decided to extend your current NJC membership for a further 6 months to 31 December 2020.
Your membership classification will remain unchanged, and this decision will be reviewed again by the Board at the end of the year.
We have been heartened by the ongoing support of NJC’s members through these challenging times, and we share your disappointment in not being able to attend the races since 16 March when Racing NSW directed that all race clubs were to be closed to non-essential participants.
Nonetheless, we know we are one of the more fortunate sporting industries as our racing continues, and we accept that in order to continue to race we must remain committed to strictly abiding by the new processes now in place at the track on race days.
We will continue to do our bit to ‘stop the spread’ and again, thank you all for continuing to support our wonderful sport from a distance.
