Introduction to the Club
Bong Bong Picnic Race Club Limited (the Club) is a Company limited by guarantee.
The basic business of the Club is to conduct the annual Bong Bong Picnic Race Club Race Meeting which includes the running of the Bong Bong Cup and which normally is held on the second Wednesday in November. The meeting is conducted at the Club’s wholly owned 88 acre racecourse, “Wyeera”, situated at 460 Kangaloon Road, Bowral (sometimes referred to as East Bowral). (see map)
Other events are conducted at “Wyeera” throughout the year for example:
- The Bowral Show,
- Bowral Dressage Club Events,
- Burradoo Polocrosse Club Events.
The Company is managed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. Answering to the Board is an Executive Committee elected by the Board consisting of a Chairman, two Vice-Chairmen, a Treasurer and a Company Secretary. The Executive Committee is responsible for the more immediate decisions required for the Club. An Office Manager handles the day-to-day activities.
