NEW memberships and more volunteers arose from a meeting to discuss options for Khancoban Country Club.

Club president Lionel Marriner said Tuesday’s meeting, called over concerns about the club’s financial viability, attracted more than 70 people.

Snowy Hydro and Snowy Valleys Council representatives also attended and promised assistance in developing a business plan.

“This is not a long-term fix by any means but it gives us a bit of breathing space,” Mr Marriner said. “At least now the members are fully informed of the club’s position.”

Meanwhile negotiations over Corryong Sporting Complex’s 1800 per cent rent increase by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning have resumed.

Club president Graham Pfeiffer was now more hopeful of a resolution.

“The land was revalued on a commercial basis but the department has now acknowledged that this should have been on a community basis,” he said.
