MJLD Race Night
To stave off the January gloom members of the MJLD and Liverpool Law Society attended a BCL Legal sponsored event at The William Gladstone in Liverpool for Race Night. There was networking, the occasional drink and a growing anticipation for the start of the races…..whose horse would win? More importantly, would I win the champagne?
The races began. The premise is that you place your raffle ticket in a numbered box corresponding with a similarly numbered horse. The video begins, the winner is determined (after sometimes a rather lengthy race and an equally as rowdy crowd cheering their horse home) and then the raffle is drawn with a lucky member winning a bottle of champagne. There were 6 races in total and a good amount of food to keep us all going through the steeplechase.
A great night was had by all with proceeds going to a hugely worthy cause The Alder Hey Children’s hospital. Did I win the champagne I hear you ask? Actually I did, the cries of ‘fix’ still ringing in my ears. I promise it wasn’t, I followed the odds and picked the right horse. The rest was luck……
Have a look at the race night pictures and I look forward to meeting more members at the next event.
