Com­mu­nity groups en­joy the Great Chase

Shepparton News - - SPORT - By Carl McGrath

The Great Chase com­mu­nity day was held Thurs­day, with a ter­rific crowd at­tend­ing.

This year eight com­mu­nity groups were in­volved, com­ing from Echuca, Sey­mour, Nu­murkah and Shep­par­ton, and all hop­ing to win some funds for their re­spec­tive or­gan­i­sa­tions.

It was also about hav­ing a won­der­ful so­cial day out where all the groups come to­gether, get in­volved in the races and cheer like they are win­ning the Mel­bourne Cup.

The club and staff look for­ward to the day every year as it is re­ward­ing to see the en­joy­ment groups get out of the event.

The day had a fan­tas­tic feel to it with more than 100 guests from the eight of the com­mu­nity groups and the trainers loved the pho­tos with the groups, high­light­ing what a com­mu­nity event re­ally is.

The next big event for the club is the Blue Rib­bon Foun­da­tion night on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 2, which works a treat for fam­i­lies with school hol­i­days on and day­light sav­ing hav­ing started.

The night will have plenty of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment and mu­sic and all the en­ter­tain­ment will be free as will ad­mis­sion with all money raised on the night go­ing to a great cause. One lucky pa­tron will win $500 just for be­ing at the venue and hav­ing fun.

Mon­day’s rac­ing kicks off at 7.08 pm, with a solid 12-event race pro­gram and of course great food, drinks and com­pany.
