As the Mornington Peninsula braces itself for yet another ripper summer, why not start the year with some country racing action on Sunday, January 13, at the Balnarring Picnic Racing Club. Swap the surfboards and beach towels for a picnic rug and ice-filled Esky and enjoy a day of top-class racing in a spectacular setting and family-friendly atmosphere, with young and vibrant race-caller Ben Sporle bringing you all the action on the track.
There’s something for everyone, including Kids Zone run by Kelly Sports with activities for toddlers to teenagers from noon to 4pm. There will be live music all day, and catering and bar facilities are available for those who choose not to BYO. Various options are available beyond the humble travel rug, from corporate marquees and roped-off areas to picnic benches, picnic spots and a members’ enclosure, all of which can be booked online at balnarringraces.com
The Balnarring Picnic Racing Club is a proud supporter of local charities with another $5000 being distributed among five groups and $1500 pledged towards drought relief in East Gippsland.
