    A long way to go still, and we understand the skepticism that exists, that a site could be run like that.
    Our template has always been 2 things
    1. The way RC was run when Dave and Ange had it. I wasn't around then, but from the posts I have seen, apparently a place of great fun and humour for people passionate about all matters racing
    2. The way PJ has run his Super Comps for years and years. Apart from 2 'incidents', I can hardly remember a vicious word said
    I met Ange and Dave way back and they took on my idea of running a betting comp. I got third prize at one stage. They were decent, intelligent people who took many hits to keep the site free of nastiness. It was fun in those days.

      Yep I went to a Racecafe day at the races at Ellerslie years ago.

      Really good day out run by decent people.

        Went to that as well. I think there were more Racecafers than punters on course.

          I do remember backing Real Vision in the last race and Don Skelton telling me it had no chance. Ran third but a nice place price.

          Real Vision was one of those horses you just like to like. Bit of ability and ended up winning a Winter Cup at Riccarton.

            Boys, was that the day at Ellerslie they organised for Jan Norrish (Irish)? If so, I was there too.

            Ange and Dave were quality people and did a magnificent job cultivating an amazing platform which steadily went downhill after Annie Scott Williams and then short stuff took over. And now we have another control freak with short man’s syndrome at the helm with his own agenda destroying any culture the once vibrant site used to have.

            I’m positive we can grow this site in to something special and I’m happy to contribute financially in running another Melbourne Cup comp here to help achieve that.

            By the way, what happened to Bass?? I’ve just finished my lunch and checked the result. He didn’t even run a place??

              Fired up a bit early. Actually led. Was under pressure turning for home.

                Sounds like he was ridden upside down. Should never have lead but maybe he was riding to instructions in the small field?

                I’m feeling a bit sick as George had $1000 to win on him.

                  I used to pick Irish up from the airport when she visited from Oz. Took her to the Clevedon Pub where many race folks hung out. Visited Tony Williams at home.

                    It was that day yes Chris I do remember you being there. Also Maria (Chestnut) and a bloke who used to be called Rocky. I think he was Brent someone who ran the ARC racing syndicates.

                    Thanks for the positive vibes about this site. We really just want people to be able to talk about their passion without all the BS and abuse that happens elsewhere.

                        Thanks for that Chris
                        I'm aware you are well known on racing forums and the comp has been very popular in the past, so it may attract a number of people from other sites, keen to relieve you of your money
                        We have a small number of people who are persona non grata here, but other than that anyone would be welcome, regardless of how much they may have criticized the need for this site
                        BUT, don't bring any nastiness here please

                        You could say the above probably applies to the site in general
