Thanks to all the people who helped from the footy club boys in the bar to the St.Joey’s girls in charge of catering to the Smyth’s running the BBQIMG_7679Girls from SJOG. Of course there was setting up of marquees which took many hands to complete. The course looked amazing everyone – thank you!

We are lucky to have so many loyal sponsors who again ensured that we had good strong fields for all a quality day of racing. Charlton and District Community Bank, North West Ag Services and The Cricket Club Hotel leading the charge there. Welcome to AMES and MS Security- terrific to have Dale McGrath and Michael Stefanakis on course to be a part of their presentations.
