Monto camel races on theway

Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

MONTO’S 2012 Fam­ily Camel and Billy Goat Races are sure to be packed full of fam­ily fun on Satur­day, Novem­ber 3.

The camel races co­in­cide with the run­ning of Derby Day at Flem­ing­ton and book­mak­ers will be on course to cater for pun­ters.

But the real rac­ing will be the 2012 Camel Cup. Heats will run from 1pm, with the win­ners to ride in the fi­nal.

Fol­low­ing the camel races, kids will get their chance to win the Monto Billy Goat Derby from 4.30pm.

The camel and billy goat races raise funds for the fight against breast and prostate can­cers.

In 2011, the race day raised about $5500.

Pa­trons are urged to dress in pink or blue in sup­port of the fight against can­cer.

There will be many nov­elty events for chil­dren and adults. Post-race en­ter­tain- ment will in­clude karaoke and a disco.

A cour­tesy bus will leave the Monto post of­fice at 11.30am and the Duck Inn at 11.40am, and will run con­tin­u­ously.

A full bar and can­teen will be avail­able, along with vans for cof­fee, ice cream and fai- ry floss. There will be an out­door fur­ni­ture dis­play and night meals from 4.30pm.

You can also bring your own tables and chairs. Drop in nom­i­na­tions for camel riders to the Monto Cat­tle and Coun- try of­fice or at the race day by 1pm. Camp­ing will also be avail­able.

For a fun filled fam­ily race day, ex­pe­ri­ence the Monto Race Club’s 2012 Camel and Billy Goat Race Day on Novem­ber 3. For de­tails phone 0488 508 987.
