Friendship Hall will be transformed into a race track complete with betting cages on a scheduled basis once per month from December through March. Six horses will compete in eight races. The horses run based on a throw of the dice (one tells which horse runs and the other dice tells how far the horse goes). Betting is the name of the game and you win money if your horse wins, places or shows. You can place a bet of 25 cents for one card or 50 cents for two cards. Winners are paid: $1 to win, 75 Cents to Place and 50 Cents to Show.
After the races are over, we’ll celebrate our winnings or mourn our losses with a BYOB BBQ.
Butch and Pam Jensen are the Coordinators for this activity with help from the Iowa Group.
