Congratulations to LOC who take the win in the Cup and SROC who take the win in the Trophey.
If you are attending multiple Thursday night events some people find it easier to make a larger prepayment and use this for credit on each event (and also help us keep transation charges down low.)
You can use this link to make a prepayment of £50.
To make entries even more convenient (and save the club some processing payment fees) we have set up the ability to prepay for Thursday evening events.
This credit is only available for use on Thursday events and not for Galoppens, etc.
To purchase the credit go to https://racesignup.co.uk/site/event.php?eventid=2047
You can buy one block of £50 credit for each person you have inside your account. This credit is then shared by anyone within your account. (For example if you have 4 family members, you can purchase one prepayment for a member of your account and all 4 are able to use this credit. Or you could buy multiple, but each prepayment must be for a different member. Again the toal credit is available to be used by anyone in the account.)
Any questions please contact steholmes (at) gmail.com.
