Racing a good thing



BETH Minter hopes more and more young people will go trackside under a program adopted by Coffs Harbour Racing Club.

Beth chairs the local Club Festivus committee which is targeting the 18-35 age bracket through cheaper membership and incentive deals.

She said the program offered $20 memberships which would get young people into any race meeting at Coffs Harbour or other participating clubs for the rest of the calendar year.

The Coffs Cup Carnival in August would be a par- ticular drawcard for Club Festivus members who would have access to a marquee complete with entertainment.

"The races aren't as big a social event in regional areas as they are in Sydney. The Randwick races are full of young people, and we're hoping that can happen here," Beth said.

Club Festivus will be launched at today's Coffs Harbour race meeting.

"We'll be scouting young people to become involved at the launch," Beth said. For more details, contact the racing club on 6652 1488.
