Chandler Velodrome.

Postby foo on patrol » Sun Jun 02, 2024 5:32 am

Well the old Commonwealth Games Velodrome had it's last race meet yesterday and after 42yrs will now be demolished. :( I went down and raced for the very last time, just to be part of history.

Good on you for turning up! 8)
Sad to hear. I guess the land is just worth too much money now? :(

the indoor track is awesome, but I suspect under-utilised.

Yep, Sleemans have no idea about promoting use of it. It costs Clubs $1700 to hire it for a race meet and then they charge to clean every single seat in the place afterwards, even though there were probably only 200 used. :roll:

The bloke that did Tuesday night training sessions was told that he would have to pay near a $1000 for hire due to restructuring costs and usage by Sleemans. It took a while to sort out a result but Uni Club came up with an idea that solve the cost issue and he now has a sensible hire fee for the Tuesday night sessions. :)
