The Silver City Racing Club committee and volunteers have begun preparing the track for the big cup meeting this month.

The office in Crystal Street is now open on extended hours this week from 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm Saturday.

“We currently have ‘early bird prices’, so we encourage everyone to get in quick,” said the club’s president Dave Gallagher.

“Pre-purchasing tickets can ensure an easy entry to the races with no lining up on the day,” said Mr Gallagher.

“It makes it a lot easier for all concerned.”

The kids’ entertainment corner will also be back this year.

“We have the merry-go-round, a jumping castle and lots of activities for the kids, as usual,” Mr Gallagher said.

“There will be plenty of shaded areas for people to enjoy themselves.”

He said buying a membership also gave entry to the Members’ Bar, a great place to enjoy race day.

“You can sit in the air-conditioned comfort of the bar or use the Members’ Grandstand.

“The grandstand offers wonderful views of all the races. It’s always a hit.”

The Silver City Cup meeting will be run on Saturday, October 26.
