There are six great ways to think about spending a day at the races.
1. General Admission
2. Members Stand
3. Table and Umbrella Package
4. Book a table
5. Book a Mini Marquee
6. Book a Lounge or Marquee
1. General Admission:
Get along to the races for the day in the Public areas. It’s easy, requires no planning and is an effortless laid back option for casual groups or a last minute decision. On many days entry is free but it may pay to just phone the club and check out the details so you know what the situation is before you go.
2. Members Stand Admission:
This is an underutilised option that those in the know take advantage of regularly. Casual raceday goers can head to the raceday office and ask to buy a Member Stand ticket for the day. This usually provides a great view of the course with all amenities close at hand.
3. Table & Umbrella Package:
Just introduced in late 2009 these stylish table and umbrella packages are an economical way to relax out-doors but provide that little bit of added comfort for the day. 2010 will see the new “Lawn Party Packages” rolled out around the TRAC group of racecourses after the success of last year. Cheap, cool and fun – give one a go!
4. Book a Table:
On certain days you have the option to book one or more tables within a larger marquee or lounge area. These areas are usually well positioned and decorated to provide a pleasant base for the day. A great option for a group of friends as food and beverage is usually provided as part of the package.
5. Book a Mini Marquee:
Mini Marquees are huge craze sweeping race courses nationwide. A group of “Mini’s” provides a great village feel. Groups may book multiple Mini’s and have the interior walls removed to provide a unique Al Fresco experience for larger groups to mix, mingle and have some fun!
Each Mini comes’ a table and chairs for 10 and depending on the day can be booked as a catered option or as something you bring your own food along to. Mini Marquees are always fantastically positioned to ensure those that book them have some of the best views oncourse. A great option for groups, large or small.
