What a wonderful evening was had by all.
For a moment I thought I must be at Cheltenham or Newbury race courses with all the shouting going on! With six races during the evening the money exchanged hands very frequently – with me being a loser!
There were two draws for four balls at Celtic Manor Golf Resort courtesy of Festive Productions Ltd. The first for the Race Sponsors was won (can you believe it, by the first race sponsors, Shark Attack. This was quickly auctioned off and fierce bidding was secured by Graeme Wright for £130. The second draw was won by the sponsors of the fourth race TQP Engineering Ltd – Pauline & Michael Teer. I am told that they will be saving the four ball to give to brother Fred who is coming over from Australia to play in Shark Attack in August. Well done to both.
The food again was fantastic (as last year) my grateful thanks to the chef and his wonderful staff.
Financially it was also a great success with the amount raised at £1666 before expenses netted the fund to be taken forward to £1022. Thank you to all our patrons.
