COMMODORE HOTEL - Team Teal Race
At our race day on Sunday 15 March 2020, we supported the Team Teal Campaign. The campaign raised over $50,000 in the past 6 weeks at race tracks around the country to assist with Ovarian Cancer Research.
The female drivers wore teal pants throughout the campaign and we staged two races for female drivers only. These were won by Jessica Young-Grant and Olivia Thornley.
We also staged a Fashion on the Field contest that attracted a lot of interest. We had some fantastic prizes and we thank all of those who supported this fun event. Special thanks to Stephanie Murray, who travelled from Wellington to assist with and judge the event. She was ably assisted by Pauline, Bronwyn, Helen and organiser Jess Murphy.
We had 12 exciting harness races on the grass as well. Our next meeting will be a lot quieter, with no patrons on course due to Covid-19. The races will still be broadcast on Trackside.
With our glass half full attitude we look forward to the new season when our first race day will be on Sunday 27 September 2020. Look forward to seeing you all there.
