Royal on 99 Roma Cup – November 18, 2017

18 November 2017

Yep, its the big one. November 18. Our second TAB meeting this year.  Too wonderful to describe and so much fun for campers, locals and the rest of Queensland (we let some New South Welsh people in the gate and a few Tasmanians and Victorians also slip through).

Its long and glorious and you will be completely satiated by the early hours of Sunday morning when we boot you out.

We are an all-weather event and nothing short of a volcanic eruption, a Kim Jong un brain explosion or a category 5 cyclone will stop the romaraces.

More information will come to hand of course and we will keep you posted.  Check out the facebook page also, be our friend, it works.

Tickets on sale, online now.  Bet you can’t wait.  Of course.

Please, please please (pathetic begging) read the options before you buy.  There are combinations for your ease of entry and economy.  So dont jump in and buy a single track party ticket and then go on to buy a camping one.  There is a combined option which will save you money.

We offer:

  • The Back By Popular Demand Track Party (all inclusive: gate entry, drinks – spirits, beers wines and softdrinks, buffet lunch, party and good time to be had by all) for $150  Click here, quick.  Located on the main concourse this year (so you dont mess up our racetrack) and giving you easy access to the Fashions display next door, the bookies and all the other punters at the park.
  • The ever popular accommodation and party in one – Track Party and Camping $165
  • The simple and unadorned Raceday entry, designed to do the job of getting you in amongst it and after that its up to you.  $35  Click here
  • The Weekend of Glorious country racing in our salubrious campground, includes Camping for the two or 3 nights if you can’t make it out of there, and raceday entry. $50  No reserved spaces, first in best dressed.  Booking online is necessary for this one. Click here.  There will be no cash at this gate, bring your cards if you cant get around to booking online
  • Membership to the coolest club in the west Literally. We have aircon in the marquee, cocktails, spirit pour, sangers in bread and a few cucumber sandwiches – something for everyone). Tickets to the Landmark Harcourt Members Marquee are $100
  • NB  If you are intending to get membership AND Camp, then call us, we dont have that option up on the site and we dont want you to double pay for general admission, so buy your membership, talk to us about a discounted camping ticket (or vice versa)
  • CALCUTTA is back.  At the Royal on 99. Friday evening, from 5pm. $30 for drinks on arrival, grazing platters for the duration, a chat with legendary Black Caviar trainer, Peter Moody, who loves romaraces. Tickets to ensure you get in. Tickets will also be available at the door of the pub from 5pm.

We like you to book online so we don’t run out of beer and lemonade. We dont want you to bring cash, especially to the campground, we will have the groovy Paypass options at the gate.

We will sell general admission at the main gate on the day. Also a Tap and go option, so don’t lose that card (or that phone, or your hat, or your shoes – your dignity is your business)

Campground is a preferred booking upfront proposition. We dont want your hard cash unless it is strained through your bank account. Open 24 hours, arrive when you like and the cost is the same for one night or 3.

THE BANDS: Happy to be hosting Route 33 on stage in the Snakepit. A little country and a little rock and roll. Best looking band since Duran Duran. More talented. Much loved at the Gympie Muster.  There will be more musical entertainment and we will keep you posted.  See a little bit more of them than you have to date in the vid .File 21-7-17, 1 52 54 pm

Then we have Funk n Stuff, a little more dj style music, vocals and the latest dance numbers.

FASHIONS ON THE FIELD :For those of you who come to the Cup because Its all about the Sash, click here where there is a full page dedicated to your special appearance on Cup day.

DRINK TICKETS: yep, we know you hate em, but we are doing it anyway.  Bring your debit card, buy a pack of them and use wisely throughout the day.  We are no longer a mid-strength event (you must have behaved yourselves over the last 10 years) so easy on the Shoeys and if you look like an extra from the Vampire Diaries with bloodshot eyes and a thin line of dribble running down your chin, we will be handing you water for the rest of the evening.

We know you have questions and on this page, we may have some generally accepted wisdom for you.  If that doesnt work, call us  0409 898623
