We Giddy’ed-up, Giddy’ed-up on the Race Night on Friday 28th April!

 

Congratulations to Pauline B and her team of helpers including Pete (dab-hand with a hoover!), Brenda S, Beryl B & Sheila M preparing all the Ploughman’s meals, Ann B for organising the raffle and Dave S for tackling the mountain of cutlery washing up!  There were also family members and friends shuffling chairs and cleaning up afterwards – great job, Pauline!  Thanks also to Jane who manned the bar all evening.

Now, onto the fun!  There was a new race man this time – Royale Racing – armed with the necessary screen, speakers and two computers one of which was linked to a tote machine reducing Honest Jon & His Moll’s stress levels compared to last time.  They only had to take the money and hand out the winnings as Ben recorded all the bets.  Lovely chap and brought a great atmosphere of excitement and fun to the evening.

Laurence is still finalising the money but it looks as if around £840 as a healthy profit was made for the club.  Well done to everyone though – it wouldn’t work without all the people supporting the event, placing bets and enjoying a social evening with friends.
