URGENT NOTICE !!!!!
It has been reported that some participants have been consuming alcohol in the Ipswich Showgrounds carpark. The carpark is a PUBLIC SPACE and drinking alcohol here is highly illegal. Police will be monitoring the situation and if any person is found drinking alcohol in the carpark, they will incur an on the spot fine. The Club can also be penalised.
So we ask everyone to do the right thing..
No drinking in public places. You can't drink alcohol in a public place in Queensland, unless the area is a licensed premises or is declared as a 'wet area'. You can be issued with an on-the-spot fine for drinking alcohol in a public place.

Access for the Greyhound participants, Staff and Essential workers will only be at the rear gate in Parker Avenue. This entrance will be manned by a security guard who will be checking for authority to enter.
