The Deniliquin RSL Club recorded a $200,000 operating profit in its last financial year, from January 1 to December 31, 2013.
RSL Board of Directors chairman Tony Smith said the board was ‘‘extremely pleased’’ with the figures, which were released last month.
The 2013 profit is more than $115,000 up on 2012.
Mr Smith attributed the ‘‘terrific and extremely rewarding’’ result to a renewed economic confidence in the region and a great effort from club staff.
He said staff were to be congratulated on the presentation of meals in both The Brasserie restaurant and at various functions.
Mr Smith said with the renewed confidence expected to continue, he said the board would embark on a 10-year strategic management plan which will include upgrades to several areas of the club.
‘‘Upgrades are in the preliminary planning stages. The areas being prioritised include the indoor and outdoor gaming areas, smoking area adjacent the gaming area, club entry, reception and some lounge area.
‘‘The Dunlop Room and toilet areas are also under consideration for some cosmetic upgrading.’’
Mr Smith said the operating profit was even more pleasing given the club’s community donations were on par with 2012 at ‘‘well above $110,000’’.
‘‘The club is required by law to donate to the community a percentage of the net profit on gaming machines.
‘‘Under the ClubGRANTS Scheme we were required to donate a little more than $60,000 so it was most gratifying to be able to almost double that amount to our community.’’
The Deniliquin RSL Club employs between 65 and 70 people and generally has anywhere between 5500 and 6000 members.
Mr Smith said the board and management would like to thank members and visitors for their support.
He said he hopes the strong patronage continues.
