Race Night - 31 May


All are welcome.


Date: Wednesday 31st May

Start Time: 6.30 pm

Venue: Cams Hall Golf Club


This will not be the conventional type of race night with films of horse races. Instead visitors will be asked to purchase horses for £10 each, which they can then “ride” down a track according to the throw of two dice – one decides which horse and the other the number of moves.

There will be 4 races with 6 runners in each, one of which will be a Ladies race. The winner of each race will receive a suitable prize.

We are looking for Sponsors for each of the races at a cost of £25. They will be able to name the race, which will be published in the programme. Anyone interested please contact Derrick Oswald.

There will also be Tote betting on each race, with a minimum stake of £1.

The format for the evening will be to sell all horses for the 4 races at the start, followed by 2 races, then a buffet meal similar to the Promises evening ( a choice of chicken fricasee or chilli con carne) and then the final 2 races.

Cost of the evening is £15 and do bring your friends as we need 60 plus people to make it successful.

It is a fund raising evening, jointly for the Rotary Foundation and for International projects. I am proposing that the International share goes towards the George Buckley Memorial Limb Centre Appeal which is intended to open a new Jaipur Limb Centre in Uganda. District will be applying for a global grant for this which will more than double our contribution.
