Saddle up for Cup centenary

IT'S been 100 years since the first Lismore Cup, and Lismore Turf Club secretary Michael Timbrell, pictured with comedian Mandy Nolan, wants us to celebrate.

"This year's centenary is not only a time to celebrate 100 years of the race, but also the achievements of horse racing in Lismore," he said.

The Lismore Cup Ball will mark the milestone and will feature entertainment by The Chevrolets, comedian Mandy Nolan and a collection of memorabilia from the past century of Lismore Cup race days.

The Lismore Cup Ball will take place on September 20 at the Lismore Workers Club. Tickets are $70 per person. For more information call 6621 3176 or email functions@lismoreturfclub.com.
