Update from Club Managers Group President - Lee Davis
My apologies for my lack of appearance at Conference last week. No doubt you are all aware by now that I was hit by a car outside the Hornby Club on Tuesday around 2pm and then spent the next 6 hours in ED before flying back home to Blenheim first thing the next morning. There is no truth to the rumour that Keith Ballantyne was driving the car.

The 2015 Club Management Conference was expertly hosted over three days by the Hornby Working Men's Club so firstly a huge thank you must go out to Daniel and his team.
Over 70 managers from across the country made their way to Hornby for the 2015 conference. There were quite a few new faces in attendance at this year's conference and we really hope that they have gone home feeling a part of the Club Managers Group and Clubs New Zealand family.
Working group wants legislation forcing offshore gambling companies to pay fees
Offshore gambling companies may be forced to pay similar fees as the TAB, as New Zealand's racing industry faces a multi-million dollar loss to overseas rivals.
An independent working group, commissioned by Racing Minister Nathan Guy, have recommended the Government introduce legislation that requires all offshore gambling operators - who mainly operate online - to register in New Zealand and pay an "offshore bookmaker fee".
They would have to pay a fee whenever they accept bets on New Zealand racing and sports events that take place on New Zealand soil. It would also apply when accepting bets originating in New Zealand.
