On a very wet and soggy Friday night on 25 February, 18 members braved the conditions and headed to Canterbury racecourse for a flutter, fun & friendship.
Due to the weather many events planned for the night were cancelled or moved inside. We had a group of tables by the window so we could still see all the action of the racing.
Amongst the members who attended we had our seasoned, casual and occasional punter (who I think did the best). We all had our methods for choosing the winner – names, colours, jockeys, mud larks or some even followed the form.
We all enjoyed the night and most commented that they were glad that they had braved the weather to come out for the night.
I think we will have to revisit this outing next Summer on a fine balmy evening.
And yes, winners are grinners!
