RBL Grand National Day

By Margaret Sheard

We have news of an exciting event from the Royal British Legion, RBLKyrenia Branch, so for all of those horse-racing fans this should be a good event to attend.   The Aintree Grand National has been and gone and now we have our very own Grand National here in North Cyprus on Good Friday 18th April at The Courtyard Inn, Karakum from 2pm.

Çatalkoy resident and branch member Eddie Hollely is organising the event.

Mr. Hollely said: “I am hosting a day at the races on behalf of the Royal British Legion. As usual there will be seven races, the last one being the final. The winners of the first six races enter thRacinge final and the winning owner of the final will receive prize money. You will be able to bet on each race as any times as you like and you can bet on as many horses in each race as you like. There is big money to be won and it is all for a good cause.”

He continued: “This is not horse racing on film and there is audience participation, you can even be a jockey, and there will be food and drink on sale during the day. The Courtyard Inn owner Mo is also serving a special priced meal in the evening and then to complete your entertainment Kelvin will be providing the music from 7pm.”

For details you can contact Mr. Hollely on O533 836 5259.

A date for the diary perhaps!
