Memories - Day at the races
With Royal Ascot less than a week away we decided to celebrate the occasion. As the sun rose a visit to the newsagents was a necessity for the latest copy of the racing post for the latest insider tips !
Over 50 people attended most dressed in fine fashion for a day of racing fun at the football club with morning coffee and cakes.
The fun and games were prompt with a selection of quizzes and competitions to get our minds alert. Brackley Town Mayor Cllr Fiona Baker arrived to cut the ribbon to start the races to which we all toasted her with a glass of fizzy fruit punch.
Over the next three hours with a two course luncheon in between we held 10 races. The tote office did a roaring trade with stakes provided by the club and with lots of cheering, laughter and tongue in cheek comments about the horses a really fun afternoon was had by all. Luckily not much disappointment, but then it was someone else's pennies !
