    This will be held in the bar, first race at 7.00pm, in the bar after the Merstham home game.
    So you can go home at the final whistle and come back, or stay drinking in the bar until the fun starts.

    For those of you who don't know how a race night works, it's done on a Tote system, where the payout is based on the amount of tickets sold for each horse.

    The races are films of obscure races from around the world, and in effect you are betting on a colour or the name of a gee gee, as it's all really based on luck.

    What we're after -make that what I'm after- is for people to come forward and sponsor the horses and races. As well as the Tote, this is how we make our money on the night, with every penny getting our Hamlet squad closer to Hamburg for this what I am sure will be a 'once in a lifetime' trip next July.

    A Race Sponsor gets to name the Race after their own company, product or themselves & this will cost thirty pounds per race, of which there will be eight.

    In each race there will be eight runners, and you can sponsor a horse for ten pounds a pop, and you will get your name as well as being able to pick a horse name.

    All the sponsors and names will be listed in the official Race Card, which will be sold on the night for a nominal fee, whilst being handed free of charge to all sponsors.

    If you want to be a sponsor then please see myself, Mishi Morath, at the game at home to Leiston on Saturday, or behind the goal at t****g on Boxing Day.

    Many thanks to you all, please put the date in your diary.

    By the title, I thought it was going to involve people getting a train to race to a bar somewhere!

    To be honest, I would love to see an Intercity 125 race. Marvelous beasts they are.
