Race Night

We are having a Race Night supplied by Entertainments Tonight, in our Scout Hall to raise funds. We appreciate it is a busy weekend so if you can’t make it, or miss out on tickets there are plenty of ways to support it. The event is open to anyone, not just Member parents so feel free to bring some friends.

When? Saturday 16th May, doors open at 7pm and the night runs from 7.30pm to midnight.

Cost? £5 per ticket which includes entry to the night and a buffet.

Tickets are limited so if you wish to go, early booking is advised, especially if you are coming with a group.  Tables take up to 10 people and you can bring your own bottle (or two) – some people last time brought electric coolers which is not a problem as we have plenty of power points!

To book tickets please phone Craig Provan on 07756 813870. If for any reason you cannot get hold of Craig, please email with your request and we will reserve you tickets. We will also hold a small quantity at the hall.

Please note, due to alcohol being consumed at the event we would prefer that children do not attend. We may however ask some of our older Explorers to assist on the night.

Donating bottles or other prizes for our Raffle

If you wish to do this either bring them down to the hall on a Section Night or phone John Hamil on 07840 631054 who will arrange collection.

Completing a Forecast Card

We are handing these out to all members starting this week. Information is on the reverse. If you choose to complete one please return it with funds on or before Friday 15th May so we can check it on the night and identify the winner. If you feel you cannot complete a card or do not wish to then this is not a problem, simply return the card to the hall. We will have spares at the hall for anyone who feels they can get more than one filled.

Owning a Horse £5 per horse, only 56 available

Being a Jockey £3, again only 56 available

A winning horse gets a cash prize for owner and jockey. You can own a horse and be the jockey also if you wish. Please email if interested.

Buffet contributions Please contact David Mathieson on 313224 if you can help.

Sponsoring a race cost £50. There are 8 races and we are looking for a sponsor for each one. This can be by an individual or a business. Please email us if you know of anyone who may be willing to sponsor a race.

If you do make it along on the night, in addition to the 8 races (race 8 is an Auction Race), there is Stand up Bingo, a Raffle and Throw the Coin at the Bottle. Please bring plenty of change (£1 coins are best ), a few friends and of course your favourite tipple!

Thank you in advance to all who are able to support this event in whatever way you are able.

Looking forward to a fun night!
