Gooree Cup & Mudgee Dragons Weekend

We want to make a weekend of the Gooree Cup coming up in early May 2012, combined with first Mudgee Dragons home game at Glen Willow Oval the day before. Now that’s what we call a weekend of fun and entertainment!

Saturday the 5th of May is the Mudgee Dragons’ first home game of the season, and with the new developments that have taken place at Glen Willow, there’s bound to be a bit of a crowd. For those that are coming in to support the opposition, and for locals as well, it’s a great opportunity to stay on for the Gooree Cup race day on Sunday the 6th of May.

As part of Racing NSW’s “Saddle Up Sundays” campaign, the Gooree Cup is featuring all the trimming and pre-event glamour, including cocktail party, equine art exhibition, high tea and fashion parade, tours of Gooree Park Stud & Winery (sponsors of the event) and VIP race day lunch.

As part of the weekend of sport, local businesses are encouraged to embrace the atmosphere by decorating offices and shops in racing and/or Dragons theme during the week leading up to the events.

We would love to see the community actively promote the weekend of the 5th and 6th of May, and encourage family and friends to come along to support our local Mudgee Dragons team, as well as local racing at the Mudgee Racecourse. We’re passionate about both sports and hope to see you there! Now is the time to start organising travel, accommodation and what you’re going to wear or decorate your business in!

A Motown Day in Mudgee

What better way to relax and enjoy yourself with family and friends, than to spend the afternoon on the picnic rug or deck chair, listening to the sounds of motown, sipping a beverage of choice and taking in the atmosphere at Gooree Park Wines.

As part of the September Wine Festival, we’re excited about this event because friends of ours Lara and Conan Brett will be performing, alongside other fantastic musicians including James Morrison who is returning to Mudgee for the event once again. The gates to Gooree Park Wines open at noon on Saturday 25th of September for this wonderful, entertaining afternoon of motown music in Mudgee.

Proceeds from ticket sales go to the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of Australia, so as well as having a great time you’ll be helping a worthy cause raise much needed funds.

Entertainment, a range of food stalls and drinks will make for a fantastic day, so bring your picnic rug, chair, poncho (in case it rains), hat, sunnies, and a bit of cash for a bite or drink. Check out the Gooree Park website for more information – We hope to see you there!
