Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club: Christmas Party Monday 11 Dec
If you are lucky enough to be in the Tuncurry-Foster area this Monday, find your way down to the Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club for the best Christmas Party in the region.
The first Monday meet to be held at the club, the Christmas party race day presents an excellent opportunity to gather some friends or work colleagues for a day of relaxed festivities at the races.
While you are there make sure to drop in on Terry Evans and check out some of the great opportunities to get involved in owning a racehorse, become a member of a syndicate or join the Platinum Club.
Several showpiece races include the Great Lakes Advocate Benchmark 65 Handicap (over 1400 metres), Manning Great Lakes Extra Benchmark 50 Handicap (over 2100 metres) and The Manning River Times Class 2 Handicap (over 1400 metres).
Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club president Garry McQuillan said the event should be a great day not to be missed.
“There are still seats available for booking in the pavilion, and gazebo seats too.
“It’s not too late to organise a day out, hold your Christmas work party, or just come yourself.
“You can book a table for 10 or a table for two for an excellent day at the races,” he said.
There will be bus services running to transport people to and from the event and the gates open at 12 noon.
“We have $20,000 prize money for each race to promote the event and get good horses travelling here,” Garry said.
“We’ve got horses are travelling from Newcastle and Kempsy and all along the North Coast on the day.”
The event, which will include seven races, is being sponsored by the Great Lakes Advocate.
The Great Lakes, only 3 hours north of Sydney but a world away. Stretching from Forster in the north, through Pacific Palms and Seal Rocks to Tea Gardens in the south and inland to Stroud. The Great Lakes is a place of secret spots and special places.
This beautiful part of the coast is a blend of great places to stay, eat and shop coupled with perfect beaches, dazzling lakes, national parks and wide expanses of forest broken up with historic rural hinterland.
Add to this enough activities and events to fill a year, from adventure thrills such as diving or mountain biking, to kayaking quiet lakes as the sun sets, trekking through ancient palm forests, whale watching, horse racing, deep sea fishing, or just browsing at a local market and your holiday is complete.
