Nanango Valentines Day Race Meeting
The Nanango Race Club will be holding their first race meeting for 2019 at the Lee Park Raceway off the D'Aguilar Highway just south of Nanango from 11:00am to around 5:00pm today. Today's races will have a "Pinkl, Pink And More Pink" theme and everyone is encouraged to dress up in their best pink outfits or accessories to be in the running for some great Moffatdale Ridge Fashions Of The Field prizes. The race club's popular Champagne@the Bit Bar will be serving up platters all day if you fancy a bite; a licensed bar and BBQ will be operating under the extended covered area; the race club canteen will be open for sit-down dining; children will be well catered for with face-painting and ice creams; and there'll be plenty of bookmakers and an on-course tote available in the betting ring to take your wagers. A lot of people like to use the February meeting for picnics on the lawns, and you're welcome to bring your own marquee if you like. This will be a 5 race meeting and buses will be running to the races from Kingaroy's Glendon Street Bus Depot (12:00 noon) and the Fitzroy Hotel at 12:20pm. The first race will leave the barriers around 1:20pm but gates will open at 11:00am so go-getters can get a head start on that all-important socialising. Admission is just $10 for adults and $5 for pensioners (under-15s are free). Everyone is welcome! More details? Phone Rosemary on (07) 4163-2346 or email her.
11th Annual Reef & Beef Extravaganza - Ironpot
The 11th annual Reef & Beef Extravaganza will be held at Ironpot Hall in Jarail Road, Ironpot from 5:30pm onwards this evening. This all-you-can-eat event will offer guests as many prawns, oysters, Moreton Bay bugs, scallops, whole cooked Red Emperor and pan-fried reef fish fillets, rib steaks and BBQ rib fillet steaks as they can pack in, along with salads, vegies and dessert. There'll also be a licensed bar operating too - so no BYO - plus live entertainment from local performers. It's been a year since Ironpot last digested a Reef & Beef Night but it'll be a fantastic event (as it always is). And if you'd rather be driven than drive the 55km from town, there'll be a bus running from Kingaroy's Glendon Street bus depot at 4:30pm for a small extra $10 fee. Reef & Beef tickets are $80 per head for adults, $50 for high school students and $25 for primary school students and you can book them by phoning Sonya on 0428-648-142 or Hook on 0428-648-244, or by emailing them. Be quick, though! Numbers for this popular community fund-raiser have risen every year and places are limited.
