Karolyn Oliver wanted to include a memorial for her Mum and Dad at the Mackay Turf Club where her Dad was a jockey and trainer and her Mum as his strapper. “I Googled chairs and Replas recycled plastic came up,” said Karolyn, “and I easily found what I was looking for.” Karolyn has installed a custom Beachcomber seat engraved with ‘Mackay Turf Club’ and a plaque remembering her parents. “We came up with a very good design, a lovely plaque, race horses, and an exact replica of the Turf Club’s winning post. I currently reside in South Australia but still found it very easy to organise and design through email and phone calls,” said Karolyn. Like all recycled plastic products, this Beachcomber seat will not rot, rust or crack, allowing visitors of Mackay Turf Club to enjoy the seat and it’s memorium for many years to come. “I know Mum would be very happy with the chair as she was right into recycling, and it is one of the main reasons I chose Replas,” explained Karolyn. This durable, low maintenance recycled plastic Beachcomber will withstand the harsh environment of Northern Queensland and require minimal maintenance from the Turf Club staff. A long lasting addition for Mackay Turf Club, jockeys, trainers, and visitors alike.
“Dad won the trainers premiership in 1983-84 with 25 wins, 27 places with only 3 horses racing. Dad continued to train till his mid 60’s with mums help.”
