HARRIERS ARE GOING TO THE DOGS. YET AGAIN.
17th May 2014.
Stafford Harriers are again going to Monmore Green for a great night out. Those who have been before will vouch that Liz Stanyer organises a great evening and usually
gets a fantastic deal for us. I think she has surpassed herself this time.
The evening includes.
- Admission to Monmore Green Dog Track
- Scampi, Chicken or Beefburger and chips. Or Veggie Burger
- 2 Drinks from the bar.
- 2 Forecast tote bets.
- Jackpot Tote bet.
This should cost £16 per person but somehow Liz has secured it for just £13 per person.
Added to that transport for just £5 per person return. There must be a catch somewhere.
Well the catch is she can only secure 30 places. She can only secure 30 places with the money. So it is strictly first come first served. Liz will only put your name on the list when you give her
the money £18 per person. Come on you’ll win more than that on the night.
So there you are the deadline is the 21st of March but there is no way it will still be open by that date. It has sold out everytime so far.
On Friday at the Annual Dinner Liz had already had 22 names for this great evening, so get your money to her a.s.a.p.
