Police issue Lismore Cup warning: Behave or be busted
POLICE are warning patrons at tomorrow's 2014 XXXX Gold Lismore Cup that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and police are prepared to take action.
Richmond LAC took to its Facebook page this morning to praise the behaviour of racegoers last year.
"Police were most satisfied with the crowd behaviour at the 2013 Lismore Cup and are anticipating the same friendly and enjoyable atmosphere for the 2014 XXXX GOLD Lismore Cup Raceday," Richmond LAC posted.
"A large contingent of police and licensed security guards will be on duty at the Turf Club and afterwards in the CBD to ensure that the event is safe and enjoyable for all persons to celebrate this significant local event.
"Additional Highway Patrol police have been rostered on duty specifically for this event and they will be paying particular attention to drink driving and traffic offences."
As the Turf Club is a licensed venue, police, security guards, turf Club staff and designated Responsible Service of Alcohol marshalls will be monitoring patron behaviour and alcohol consumption to ensure that acceptable standards of behaviour are maintained.
"Police are encouraging patrons who attend the Turf Club to make use of the numerous buses and taxis available throughout the day, with designated drop off zones in the CBD at Crowther Carpark, Trevan Bus Zone Conway Street and Spinks Park Transit Centre."
"Lismore licensed premises have a 9pm Curfew with entry to the licensed premises not allowed after 9pm.
"The Lismore Late Nighter Bus will be in operation from the CBD with the first service starting at 8.00pm and the last service leaving the CBD at 1am."
