Race Night

Finishing Post Results from Friday Night

The going was soft during Race Night on Friday due to the weather, but sufficient hardy souls made it to enjoy a fun and action packed evening.

Many thanks to those who sponsored the races or bought horses. The 8 winning owners were Paul Culley, Rob Hinson, Helen Lake, Giles Bennett, Paul Slatter and Toni Prince, whilst Alan Ravenhall managed the feat of winning 2 races in a row! He was last rumoured to be off to buy a lottery ticket.
All the winners received a bottle of wine.

All race sponsors (Carl Crome, Andy Storer, Rob Hinson, TC, Toni Prince & Tim Brunsden) were entered into a draw and the Ladies Captain; Toni Prince promptly drew out her own name! She graciously decided to redraw and the extremely expensive bottle of wine went to the deserving TC who as normal ably compered the auction for the last 2 races.

The night raised £158 which will be added to the Race Night account, the profits from which will go to the Captains’ charities.

Friday 31st March 2023

7pm (1st race at 7.30pm)

Entry is free

For those who are unaware, the Race Night consists of 8 races from foreign or other obscure races shown on the TV or screen in the main bar.

There is a tote betting machine allowing you to bet on the horses. The odds are worked out by the machine depending on the amount placed on each horse.

There will be a 30 minute break after the 4th race to cater for food. This can be ordered from the bar menu at the going prices.

The subsidised food that was originally circulated has not been taken up so has been withdrawn.

Hope to see you there. It is always a fun night.

DG Christmas Party 2019

Donnington Grove members came together for their annual Christmas Party on Saturday evening.

Over 100 guests enjoyed a welcome drink, followed by a festive 3 course dinner in the marquee.

A quick round of “Heads and Tails “ resulted in £150 being raised for the Captain’s Charity, The Rosemary Appeal. Thank you to all who contributed and well done to the winner who took home two bottles of champagne.

Many thanks to Kim Richardson for the Rosemary Appeal with her “Guess the number of marshmallows in the snowman” Kim also kindly donated a fine hamper for the closest number won by Ian Gaskell the winning quantity was 406. (Ian your hamper is in the pro-shop waiting for you)

Shakey’s Disco was very popular, as always, and the music struck a chord with the membership resulting in a packed dance floor.

The evening passed all too quickly and our thanks must go to Nigel and Kat for organising the evening on our behalf. A huge amount of background work goes into ensuring that these events run smoothly; thanks to Jo and her team for the preparation of the beautiful fairy lit marquee and in attending to all our requests during the evening and lastly a huge thank you to Simon and his team for all the hard work in preparing such a beautiful meal.

The evening was a resounding success.

Make sure you keep the date free for next year 12 Dec 2020 !
