Dungarvan GAA Notes 2nd March 2021 Sponsored by Cappoquin Logistics
Cheltenham Board 2021
As we settle in to the first few days of March it’s a sure sign that the first great annual sporting spectacle in the shape of the Cheltenham Racing festival is upcoming. In past years numerous Dungarvan Hostelries would have had a reputation for the implementation of that famous Cheltenham Board . For those unfamiliar with the Board the concept is that you select one horse in each of the first five Races over the four days starting in March 16th and you are awarded points for your selections position. Given the current level 5 restrictions and all hostelries temporarily closed we are delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to still be able to participate in Cheltenham Board 2021. The great attraction for this competition is that you have an interest for each of the four days and you can watch all your selections run from the comfort of your own home. It offers tremendous excitement right to the final day and great value for a week’s entertainment.
Entries can be taken on the klubfunder app or alternatively you can contact any committee member for further details and entry or text the club phone on 087 7977272 to enter. We will have prizes each day for our club ticket holders on our own leader board as well as the top prizes from fantasycheltenham.ie. The Cost of entry is €20 and this covers the four days.
