2nd Annual Racenight event will take place Thursday 22nd of November at 8 PM in the Kielys of Mt Merrion Deerpark Road, Phone 2832209

Our race night consists of 10 races with horses in each race. Each horse cost 40 euro to sponsor. Sponsorship is split into 4 parts i.e Horse, Owner, Trainer & Jockey. You can sponsor all 4 parts at a cost of 40 euros or alternatively split the sponsorship into 4 parts at 10 euros each.

The person who pays to sponsor the horse should name the horse e.g "Howi's hope" or Flynn's Flyer" Please use as much creativity or humour as possible in naming horses (but nothing too vulgar please!) For every race winner, there is a prize money of 100 euros, which is either given out as a single prize or split if various sponsors contributed to horse.

In Addition to sponsorship of horses we need 10 sponsors to sponsor each race at 200 euros a race. For our race programme, full page adverts are available at 200 euros and half page adverts are available at 100 euros.

All players are expected to participate on this fun event

Our upcoming Golf Classic will take place next year (2008) with dates still to be decided. Our Fund Raising target is €12,000, which we hope will take care of all outstanding costs for this season and provide a sound financial footing for next season.

We require contributions from all our members to achieve this target. Members can either (a) enter a team (b) arrange Hole Sponsorship (c) arrange Prize Sponsorship or contribute prizes.

A team of 4 costs €650, but the margin to the Club after Green fees, Dinner & prizes is only €170. It costs €200 to Sponsor a hole, but if someone can get only €150, we certainly wont refuse it.
