The Roma Picnics Club Race Day is no longer a mid-strength event HOWEVER, we are still supporting the Responsible Service of Alcohol.  CARLTON MID IS THE OFFICIAL BEER OF THE ROMA PICNIC RACES. (But we love Great Northern also)

We  will be a full strength meeting for  the General Public.   We accept cash (it works for everyone) but we prefer EFTPOS, using the cool and super efficient ALBERT machines.  There is a Cash Out option at our office on track. We are back to drink tickets this year, a happy decision for our staff who hate adding up and subtracting change.
