General Admittance for advance ticket purchasers is €10 with barbecue food available on the night for €5. It’s €15 entry for people with no ticket purchased in advance. There is a Prize Draw of 2 All Ireland tickets for people who buy a €10 ticket. It is hoped that clubs or pubs could organise a bus to get people to the race track as this is going to be a massive social event with barbecues, bouncing castles etc with plenty of entertainment for all ages. The North division are organizing buses to carry punters to the event (contact Tim Floyd, secretary.tipperary@gaa.ie for details). Corporate Tables are available for the evening to seat 10 people at a total cost of €500 and this would be a great way of treating clients or business associates to a night out in appreciation for their support. The €50 per head includes entry to race, a Meal and Race Card. There will be a tipster serving all tables. An individual may purchase a seat for €50. To sponsor a race on the night will cost €2,000.00 and sponsors will be guests of the County Board and will present the winning owner with the prize from their sponsored race. Photograph of same will appear in the local press subsequently. Sponsors will receive entry to the race meeting for 4 people with an Option of further €10 tickets. Sponsors and their guests will be in the VIP section where wine and food will be provided, the Race Card will feature their names on the race that they are sponsoring, and as much publicity as possible in the local and daily papers. The sponsors will also receive a half page ad in the race programme. County players will be present at the meeting to meet and greet the punters and divisional boards are being encouraged not to have games fixed on that Friday night.
