RACE NIGHT 2018

Posted by Peter Brainch on 30 October 2018

Yardley Hockey Club Race Night – Friday 23rd  November 2018

Once again it is nearing the time for one of our Club’s major fundraising events – the Race Night.

The date is Friday 23rd  November at the Willclare Sports and Social Club, B26 2NX. The first race is scheduled for 8.00pm. This date was published in the Pre-season Circular and is on the Fixture Card – so hopefully you have already decided to come along to support the event.

There are nine races in all – eight plus a special auctioned race to complete the evening.

It is traditional for each race to be sponsored at £25 a time. The Club is very grateful for sponsors who have agreed so far, but there is room for more offers in this direction.

Before the event we need to sell some horses – there are eight in each race. So a total of 64 to be sold. See Zach or Paul or Jeevan on Saturday or contact Pete with the name of your horse and your £2!!! You can, of course, buy more than one horse, if you wish.  If your horse wins a race you will win a cash prize.

It’s all good fun and the occasion is our main fund raising activity for the season. We hope that as many club members as possible will come along with family members and / or friends. I trust that club members will also spread the word to remind everyone at the matches over the next few weeks.

We usually run a raffle during the evening to help swell the funds. The Club would be very grateful for any donations of prizes. They can be brought on the night or donated beforehand.

There will also be a Jackpot which could scoop you 50% of the takings for that feature.

The Club has traditionally enjoyed good support for this event - through Race Sponsorship, purchasing of horses, donation of Raffle prizes and attendances on the night of the event. We hope that this year's event will receive equally positive support.

Previous such events have been very enjoyable occasions and profitable for the Club (which of course is the aim of the occasion!!) Please try to support the event or at least buy a horse. Come along and place  a bet. You won’t lose your shirt but you just might win something. You might just enjoy yourself as well!!

Hope to see you on 23rd.
