Fun Days Out
A Day at Cartmel Races
Rotary Visit to Cartmel Races on 22nd July
43 Rotarians and guests enjoyed a sunny day out at the Cartmel races on the 22nd July. Leaving Keswick early at 9.30am we arrived early in Cartmel in time to enjoy a leisurely coffee or beers together before the serious business of lunch. All 43 of us dined at the well-known Rogan and Co, owned by Michelin star chef Simon Rogan for their excellent two course lunch.
On to the first race, with form book in hand, and everyone was convinced it would be easy to pick the winners. Some studied the form book; others went to inspect the horses in the parade round and some went to the craft beer tent for inspiration. It seemed that no tactics worked and I didn’t meet anyone who was smiling about their winnings, except the bookies of course.
The journey back was uneventful, save for a few content snoring noises. We had a great day in the sun.
