Melbourne Cup Day – Tuesday 6th November
Members and guests are invited to a great day of fun at the Club’s Melbourne Cup Day festivities. Start the day with an optional game of golf in a four-person Ambrose Event ($10.00 entrance fee), or just come along to the luncheon. A 7.00 AM shot-gun start will ensure that players are finished in time for a $35.00 per head luncheon of roast beef or pork and vegetables, followed by Pavlova or cheesecake for dessert. ‘Doors open’ at 11.30 AM for a 12-noon lunch.
Entertainment includes $1.00, $2.00 and $5.00 sweeps, as well as the traditional Calcutta Sweep, and auction, under the hammer of Gavin McConnell. Calcutta raffle tickets will be available at $1.00 each, six for $5.00 or thirteen for $10.00. The draw for horses will take place from 12.45 PM with the auction commencing at 1.00 PM.
If you are a racing buff and have a good knowledge of the Melbourne Cup, then you might win a prize in the trivia game.
Prizes will also be awarded for the best-dressed lady and gentleman in the ‘fashions-on-the-field’ judging, which will occur after the big race.
Meal and table bookings are essential, in order to assist with catering arrangements. Therefore, please reserve your table for up to eight persons on the booking sheet, which will be on the clubhouse bar. Phone bookings may be made to the clubhouse on 5545 1788. Payment is expected before 12 noon on Thursday 1st November.
