The next Mount Gambier Harness Racing Club race meeting is scheduled for Monday 25 February 2019, commencing at approximately 1.00 pm.

Phil Wood steps aside as President

At the Mount Gambier Harness Racing Club’s Committee meeting on 31 January 2019, the Club accepted the resignation from its long serving President Phil Wood.  Phil is in his 14th year as President, and felt it was an opportune time to step aside to allow the Club to nurture a new President into the role.  Phil has major surgery planned, and this will take some pressure off to assist in his recovery.  Phil will remain on the Committee enabling his vast knowledge to be available to assist the Club (32 years on Committee).
In affecting the change, Michael Lamond has been appointed President until the next Annual General Meeting.
Due to increased work commitments, the Club’s Vice President, Neil Shepherd has also tendered his resignation, with Simon Phillips stepping into that role.  Neil will remain on the Committee and continue to share his extensive experience and knowledge to the Club.
Mick Lamond can be contacted on his mobile 0419 801 592
