Effective 1st January 2009, Greyhounds Queensland has announced that nomination fees at Non-Tab Country Clubs will be reduced by half.
A number of years ago the then Queensland Greyhound Racing Authority, and representatives of Non-Tab country clubs agreed on a standard nomination fee of $11.00 (GST incl).
The fee paid directly to the individual clubs by trainers was utilised for prizemoney and administration expenses.
The Directors of Greyhounds Queensland (GQL) resolved to reduce the fee to $5.50 (GST incl) from 1 January 2009.
To ensure the clubs were not worse off financially by the reduction, GQL will cover the difference, which will be paid on a monthly basis in line with current funding arrangements.
A review of the reduced nomination fee will be undertaken in June.
