Members, wives and friends enjoying the races
Eighty three members, wives and friends of Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club attended a race night at Middlesbrough Golf Club, Brass Castle Lane, on Saturday night. Trevor Russell was the organiser for the night and provided all the races which included commentaries . Eight replays of horse races were televised and all races and horses had sponsors. Horse owners, whose horse won a race, won a bottle of wine. The punters who bet on the winning horse came away with amounts up to £6 . The Golf Club staff were fantastic in providing meals and serving many thirsty, well dressed, racegoers. Thanks to Rotarians, Bryan Sloper, Stuart Souter and Mike Overy for the excellent organisation of the event. Prizes were awarded for the best dressed lady and the best dressed man. The event was a great success with all present having great fun and raising £750 for Rotary Charities.
