Original Post

Following a very successful evening last year, Jim Adams will be hosting another Race Night on Friday 14th September.  The format will be the same as last year.  Pre race sales of horses and jockeys have now commenced through volunteers from within the club who have agreed to promote sales. In addition horses and jockeys will be available in the clubhouse on a regular basis from now until the date of the event. The cost  of a horse or jockey, as last year is £5, with the winning owner and jockey receiving £25. 

Tickets for the event will be £5 inclusive of a finger buffet. They are available behind the bar in the clubhouse or can be reserved by emailing jimadams2000@icloud.com .

We are also looking for sponsors for each race at a cost of £20. Two of the eight races have been sponsored already. Please email Jim Adams to register an interest.

This is an important fundraiser for the club which all members are asked to support. Jim says, last year we raised over £1000 and I am sure we can exceed that amount this year.
