From President Mina Ward:
Today was filled with laughter and fun!!
I am not entirely sure what Campbelltown’s President Damian Leach made of our club’s Melbourne Cup tradition, but he certainly came well prepared wearing his own jockey’s silks, including goggles and whip.
Techno Queen Kirsty provided sound effects ranging from the Racecourse Fanfare to a recording of the running of last year’s Cup. Kirsty went on to win the Lucky Card, which had jackpotted to $15, and she then put some of her winnings to the Xmas Market Raffle.
Thanks to Gary Lockwood, for again supplying the costumes and getting everyone into the mood for the race.
Also thanks to Leonie for supplying the fancy glasses and fizzy water.
