Friday December 13, Turnbridge WMC

The reindeer will be in the paddock from 7.30 pm and the first race will be under starters orders from 8.00 pm. Join us for a buffet and bet or why not purchase a reindeer?

Tickets are just £5.00 per person and include a buffet supper. They can be purchased from any committee member, the website, or by contacting Dave Calverley [07887 878 425].

Reindeer can be purchased prior to the night at £3.00.

Sponsors are required for each race. Sponsorship will be a suitable quality bottle of wine, whisky, Ferrari, etc.

In each of the 6 races there are 6 reindeer. These are available for people to purchase at a price of £3 per reindeer. After each race is run the owner of the winning horse wins the prize the race sponsor has provided.

In each of the 6 races members and guests place bets on each reindeer, they take a look at the personalised race programme and choose a reindeer 1-8 who they think might win the race. The tote then opens and bets are placed at £1 per bet. Guests can buy as many tickets as they wish on any particular horse to increase the amount they might win. They may also place bets on as many horses as they choose for e.g. £1 on horse number 1 £3 on horse number 4.

The final race of the evening is the auction race. Each of the 6 winning reindeer will be auctioned, and be owned by highest bidders. If each horse sells for £50.00 the total amount raised from the sale of the 6 horses will be £300.00. We run the final race and 50% is given to the owner of the winning horse and 50% is retained for the club funds.
