Nanango Autumn Race Meeting
The Nanango Race Club will be holding their annual Autumn Race Meeting 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 "1950s Retro" fashion theme and everyone is encouraged to dress up in their best 1950s0style outfits and/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, including new bruschetta, cheese and antipasto platters; a licensed bar and BBQ will be operating under the extended covered area; the race club canteen will be open for sit-down dining; and there'll be plenty of bookmakers and an on-course tote available in the betting ring to take your wagers. There's also plenty of undercover seating and lots of parking on course. And for the benefit of people who've come to Goomeri early for tomorrow's Pumpkin Festival, there'll also be a free bus running to and from the races that will depart from Joe's Grand Hotel in Goomeri - all you need to do is phone Lesley on (07) 4163-1513 to book a seat and find out the departure time. 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 Nanango RSL at 12:30pm. 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.
