Saturday 1st December | Crown & Cushion Hotel, Chipping Norton | 7.00pm  | Tickets £3

Local Lions Club members are holding a Reindeer Race Night on Saturday 1st December 2012 at the Crown and Cushion Hotel, Chipping Norton.  Money raised at this seasonal fund-raising event will go towards taking seventy five of Chipping Norton’s senior residents to a performance of Cinderella at Chipping Norton Theatre.

This fun and frolicking evening will include 6 Reindeer Races with the ‘owners’ or their representatives riding wooden reindeer and competing to be first past the finishing post.  The reindeer will be raced on a specially-constructed grid course.  Throwing of dice will determine how many moves each reindeer and its rider can make.

The Lions are looking for local companies to become Race Sponsors at the cost of £100 per race.  Anyone interested in sponsoring a race should contact one of the Lions listed at the bottom of this release.

The reindeer will be auctioned at the start of each race and  the ‘owner’ of the winning reindeer will receive a share of the tote.  Once the reindeer have been auctioned, the tote will open for betting.

Tickets are for sale priced at £3 each.  The Lions suggest anyone interested in attending books a table for 8 – 10 people and form a kitty to compete in the bidding for each reindeer.

Reindeer Racing tickets are available from:

  • Robert Caswell: 01608 646003
  • Martin Guy: 01608 641154
  • Graham Raven: 01608 645134
