We have some difficult news for our club this morning with the closure of Rutherglen Holiday Resort. The company has gone into receivership.
While we are still working hard to figure out the situation, what it means in the short term is that our race venue is closed, and at least for the moment most of our gear is locked up in the venue while the receivers do their work. The race meeting scheduled for next week is cancelled. Please let your friends know.
What we need to do is to be ready at short notice to get all of our track equipment out and stored. If you can help with removal, transport and/or storage please leave a comment here or contact Paddy or Greenie.
Then we’ll need to go to work to find a new venue and figure out next steps for Launceston R/C. We’ll announce a club meeting as soon as we are able to give more information and make some plans.
In the meantime, keep loving R/C. Join with some mates and car pool to race at Latrobe or in Hobart, and don’t forget the NWRCC Cup in a couple of weeks. We will keep publishing news and updates here in the next few days and weeks.
And remember we have gone from zero to a successful club in just a couple of years, and we have done that by being committed, creative and willing to work hard. We will do the same again.
Sorry to bear bad news. All offers of help, assistance and advice gladly received.
