It's a Mug's Game
Anyone with any pretensions to be a racing tipster came down to earth with a bump at the Village Hall on Saturday night. After four “races” most of the teams, sorry “Enclosures”, were in serious deficit. Congratulations to the Striped enclosure/table who finished the evening in profit, but everybody else showed a distinct loss on their initial investment of £8,000.
In spite of this setback this year’s Theme Dinner, “A Night at the Races”, was an outstanding success. Everybody present, more than 60 people, had a wonderful time and the four-course meal was delicious.
Lots of competitions generated lots of winners including:
- Best Ladies’ Hat — Sally Porter and Lorraine Symonds.
- Table Quizzes — the Striped and Red (actually Pink) tables.
- Inter-course Bingo — Malcolm Bardsley.
- Betting Winners — the Striped table.
The real winners were of course those who contributed to such an amazing event (in no particular order):
- David & Doris Lambert
- David & Adele Godsmark
- Ken Ashton & Julie Oxley
- Terry and Kath Hanner
- David & Jo Wright
All those who attended can only say “Thank You” for a such an enjoyable evening.
