LETTERS: Young gun fires at turf club; farmer at the PM

Steve Brown, your article
gets the gong from me and many of my fellow land holders. We all 
have to lobby our local members and the public in general that to close
down produce producing properties any where in Australia is going
against the philosophy of Australia being a food bowl. The present PM
thinks we should develop other industries to take us forward but I
assure you that whatever we do, everyone still has to eat.

Ok we all love young guns, it’s a day for the boys
and girls of Alice Springs to evolve into ladies and gentleman with our
frocks and suits, but 40 dollars a ticket that’s outrageous.  It
wasn’t that long ago it was only 15 dollars a ticket and everyone went,
now barely anyone wants to go! It’s a great day for the community to
band together and socialize.
When the price went from 15 to 20 dollars a ticket the number of people
who went dropped. Turf club what are you doing?? The demographic “young”
guns is aimed at can’t afford to spend money there, if they used most
their money to get in the gate
Drop the price back to 20 dollars and you will be amazed how many people come along
