President Marion welcomed everyone to the evening and very soon MC Lennie was introducing the program and race format to an eager crowd.
The “bookies” were expertly trained by Lennie just before the guests began to arrive. I was impressed by Iain’s dedication as he left his companies night out – mind you it may have been a better night without the boss!?!
Races 1 – 5 were over surprisingly quickly.
A game of stand up BINGO was organised to fill in time for the Buffet to get set up. I’m sure there was nothing MC Lennie would have wanted other than present the prize to the winner but there was a lack of “listening ears” as teacher says and after checking 6 or so “winners cards” the prize was put into the raffle!
Without the support of the 60 or so people there and the 30 that donated raffle prizes and bought the dodgy horses! We would not have had such a “Like the old days” feel about the function.
