Start Ramp update – Funding. Lance read Lance’s report. See attached. Main concern building a new start gate but have to interfere with ramp anyway so makes sense to do both. Don’t want to do on the cheap but what we have got is going to start falling apart and is dangerous. Can we save money somehow? Funding is proving too hard to get. Can we put a plaster on for now.
Phil says we need to do the gate as soon as we get some money, any money.
Colin mentioned tilt slabs
Gate can be moved when we fix the ramp?
