As protocols and regulations are changing regularly during the COVID-19 pandemic it is our intention to update this page whenever changes to GRV and/or club protocols change at the Warragul Greyhound Racing Club. The current regulations in chronological order with the latest change listed first are:
20/3/2020– Race day trial payments
As of March 20, 2020 all trial payments will continue under our present arrangement i.e. half on-line when booking and the remainder at the boxes in cash. Therefore, this ensures the safety of patrons and staff with the main office area being off limits to trainers and handlers on trial days.
19/3/2020– Starter and travel fees to be paid direct credit
Commencing from race meetings effective Monday Mach 23, 2020, all clubs will cease to pay starter and travel fees in cash on race day – payments will be made by GRV into trainers bank account via Fasttrack the following business day after the race meeting. Payments for racing on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be processed the following Monday.
16/3/2020 – Race meeting attendance restrictions – closed to the public
Effective immediately until further notice race meetings are closed to the public with attendance restricted to:
a) trainers (or trainers rep) with runners engaged at the race meeting
b) licensed catchers
c) accredited media (club or authorised photographer)
d) essential staff and GRV / club officials
