Oaks Day equals fun and fash­ion

The Free Press (Corowa) - - NEWS - BY SARAH DEAN

Fun, fash­ion and fri­vol­ity will be the or­der of the day as women frock up in their finest for a day of fine food, cham­pagne and horse rac­ing at the Corowa Golf Club Ladies Oaks Day on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 9.

There are still tick­ets avail­able for the lun­cheon that will this year be held in the lounge area of the Corowa Golf Club, with a lim­ited num­ber of ta­bles avail­able on the bal­cony al­ready sold out.

Or­gan­iser Ker­ryn Alexan­der said the event was a tra­di­tion that was now well and truly es­tab­lished in Corowa.

“It’s al­ways a great day and we are al­ways amazed by the stan­dard of dress,” she said.

“The women come dressed in their finest hats and out­fits, which is al­ways the high­light of the day.”

Fash­ions on the Field will be judged through­out the day, with the win­ners an­nounced in the af­ter­noon.

Fash­ions on the Field cat­e­gories in­clude best dressed lady, best hat, best fas­ci­na­tor and peo­ple’s choice.

Ker­ryn said the day promised to be fun filled, packed with de­li­cious food, fine wine and friend­ship.

“Don’t miss this truly tra­di­tional event held es­pe­cially for the ladies of Corowa and sur­rounds,” she said.

“We have had ladies from in­ter­state as well as far flung re­gional ar­eas such as Bro­ken Hill, Bright, Ko­rum­burra and Al­bury who have at­tended with their friends.

“Our vis­it­ing ladies have all agreed that the Corowa Golf Club Ladies Oaks Day has cer­tainly lived up to the rep­u­ta­tion of be­ing a must at­tend event in Corowa.”

Ker­ryn said the change of lo­ca­tion from the Golf Club’s au­di­to­rium to the lounge area would pro­vide a greater at­mos­phere.

The decor for the day has once again been do­nated by Katie Mas­sari from Poppy Em­po­rium.

The day will start at 11.30am with bub­bles and nib­bles fol­lowed by a sit down two-course lun­cheon at 1pm. All the races will be shown on the big screen. Tick­ets cost $40 per per­son, con­tact the Golf Club on (02) 6033 1466.
