Night at the Races
Sunday, October 23rd at 5:30pm
Registration is now closed.
The OPCUG has planned an autumn social evening at Rideau Carleton Raceway!
We have spoken to the marketing folks at Rideau Carleton Entertainment and for the value-priced bargain of only $29.99/person (taxes and gratuities included), you will receive reserved seating in the dining room overlooking the racetrack:
- An All-you-can-eat buffet dinner featuring 100 fine food items.
- A complimentary race program.
- A personal welcome by track announcer Norm Borg & special OPCUG Welcome messages on the in-field Tote board.
- A live race dedicated to the OPCUG.
- A $2 wager (To get you in on the racing action!)
- A $5 slot voucher for the OLG slots
- Free coffee or tea
- Free parking and valet service
The date has now been finalized: Sunday, October 23rd, 2016, 5:30pm. As this is a reserved seating event, pre-registration is required.
If you would like to join in on a fun-filled evening of dining, the thunder of the hooves and the excitement of your horse crossing the finish line, you are now able to reserve your seat(s)! You may pre-register by completing this form and sending it by mail (or bringing it to the September or October meeting) with your payment, or registering online using PayPal.
This is a reserved seating event and you must pre-register no later than October 12th.
If you're interested in riding in the Ottawa Sun Pace Car for one of the races, please let us know early. There may be an opportunity to do so with advance notice. If you're not sure on how to wager don't worry. At the Q&A session following the October 12th General Meeting Jeff Dubois will give a short presentation on harness racing, how to read the race program and how to place your wager.
(From inside PayPal's shopping cart, you can change the number of people, followed by "update". When ready, click on "checkout", from there you can select to pay with PayPal, or alternatively with other method of payments by clicking on "Don't have a PayPal account?")
