It will be cold. It will be a full afternoon of sport. And Fashion. And winter fun, heaters, gloves, rah-rah, footies, silks, fast horses and halfbacks.
A soup kitchen, (soup nazi behind the counter), a Wallabies test on at the bar (for easy drowning of sorrows) and a band to dance the night away.
Our much loved, well supported and best winter event, the Rugby Races, coming to Bassett Park, with a band, with jockeys, footballers, bookies, a classy crowd (mostly) and a supply of warming beverages.
For the first time, 7 races beginning at 12.30 and running til 4.15pm on a perfectly conditioned sand track. A little rain through the week makes for a firm track and a crisp Saturday morning. Sunny all day, frosty alllllll night.
Hope you can make it. Come and watch some club rugby where the home team has at least some chance of taking the trophy.
