Not sure who to bring to the Races or prefer to bring a different person each meeting?

You can purchase your guest card with your Membership online or if you want to add a guest card to your current Membership call 07 5491 6788. Limit one per Full Member. 

The loss or theft of Membership Cards must be reported to SCTC as soon as possible so unauthorised use can be prevented. A $10 replacement card fee is applied for each lost or stolen card. If a Member fails to produce their Membership card to gain access on a race meeting, they will be refused access.
