PLEASE READ AND TAKE NOTE:

The 2017 Goondiwindi Picnic Races have NEW RULES FOR MINOR’S attending the event:
This year we cannot allow any unaccompanied minors at the course, as the whole area is a licenced venue.

In the past, parents have been dropping their children off (usually teenagers) and then picking them up later at around 9PM when minors have to leave. This year this will not happen. In the interests of everyone’s safety, if you are under age and don’t have a responsible adult with you at all times, you won’t be granted entry.

Please help share this information with any minors who may be intending on attending the races this year.
