Don't blame the Races


Monaro Post 18/12/13
A report in Fairfax media last week, erroneously linking anti-social behaviour with the annual Cooma race meeting, has angered the president and committee of the Cooma Monaro Race Club.

The report, under the heading “Deplorable behaviour after Cooma Races (sic)”, quotes local police as saying the behaviour by patrons at the races on December 7 was exemplary. Police said there had been no trouble nor any incidents reported during the race meeting and the crowd had been well behaved. Several people were issued infringement notices that night for failing to quit licensed premises when asked to and for offensive behaviour. Police reported an overall 17 infringement notices were issued. To read more visit www.monaropost.com.au
