THANKS

The Balnarring Picnic Racing Club would like to thank its volunteers, staff, service providers, Racing Victoria officials and Country Racing Victoria who make all our meetings safe and family friendly events conducted in the true spirit of picnic racing.

Thanks to the dedicated owners and trainers who brought their horses to Balnarring this year and to the jockeys who rode them.

We could not have achieved the results we did without the support of our members and the racing public through your attendance at our meetings.

BALNARRING PICNIC RACING CLUB – PICNIC RACING FOR FAMILY ENJOYMENT.

Last Saturday, we were privileged to have members from the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation conduct an official Welcome to Country, Smoking Ceremony and Yidaki (didgeridoo) Ceremony at Emu Plains Reserve.Smoking Ceremonies are an ancient aboriginal custom which have cleansing properties, warding off bad spirits from people and land, and creating pathways for a brighter future.This annual event is an important element of our club’s commitment to Reconciliation and forms part of our Reconciliation Action Plan. We thank the @bunurongofficial and Uncle Shane and Uncle Josh for welcoming us on to Bunurong land.Balnarring Picnic Racing Club acknowledges the Bunurong’s continuing relationship to the land and waterways and respects that their connection and spiritual identify is maintained through ancient ceremonies, song lines, dance, art and living culture.
🛟 CARING FOR THE COMMUNITY 🛟Last Saturday we hosted the Pt Leo Surf Life Saving Club as part of our Caring for the Community program.Pt Leo SLSC are a wholly voluntary organisation who provide beach patrol, first aid and rescue services at Pt Leo surf beach and surrounds. Racegoers were able to jump on a surf paddle and chat to the friendly Pt Leo lifesavers and learn all about their important work.We were wrapped to be able to present a grant for $1,000 for the Club to support their activities!If you know of organisation that could benefit from our support, head to our website for program details: https://balnarringraces.com/sponsors-partners/community-charities/@ptleoslsc#caringforthecommunity #grantsprogram#charities #morningtonpeninsula
