Race night update is that all horses and jockeys have been sold and nine sponsors have been found, one for each race and an overall sponsor. So far 115 tickets have been sold.
Membership has now hit the 300 mark with membership now standing at 302. Cash at bank stands at £3250, with a further £254 in the paypal account, plus money from the race night and webshop still to be banked. However we are still awaiting monies from supporters direct for the setting up costs. Coach bookings for Oxford and Weymouth are sluggish at present and decisions will be made by the weekend as to whether they will go ahead. Race night plans are in hand. Enough volunteers have been sought to do the door and sell the horses.
The Irsh bingo will be run through the evening at £1 a ticket with the split being 25%, 15%, 10% for 1st , 2nd and 3rd respectively. The auction race will be split 50% to the winner and the balance to Trust In Yellow. Alan Scarisbrick has offered to help with the announcements along with Jon and Dave Pennington is arranging the race card. Prizes have been provided by Martin Bos at Southbank Rd Newsagent and JPG News and the club have promised to provide further prizes. Rob has arranged a float and all volunteers have been asked to turn up for 7pm.
