Get home and get fed af­ter Monto races

Central and North Burnett Times - - MONTO RACES -

HAVING a yarn and meet­ing new faces are Ge­orgeWan­ders’ favourite things about be­ing a taxi driver.

And, no doubt, with the Monto races on this week­end, he’ll get plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to do both.

“I don’t mind not go­ing to the races be­cause it’s usu­ally a party enough for me in the cab,” MrWan­ders said.

“I’m quite look­ing for­ward to it.”

The ded­i­cated driver said he would work all day and as late as he was called out for Satur­day’s event.

A shut­tle from in Monto town­ship to the race course will have no ex­tra charge for peo­ple who stop at the Duck Inn.

“We will have Chi­nese take­away in a hot­box ready for peo­ple to just grab and go,” Duck Inn’s Pam Toms said.

“We will also have our en­tire usual menu on of­fer but, if peo­ple don’t want to wait, the Chi­nese will be a great op­tion.”

MrWan­ders said he would cer­tainly an­tic­i­pate having at least his fair share of Chi­nese tucker dur­ing the course of the night.
