Dance the Night Away

(Prize Night – 12 November 2016)

Yet another year has flown past and North Down Pony Club members were out in force at the Scrabo Golf Club on Saturday night (12 November) to celebrate another year of great success and to collect numerous rosettes and trophies at their annual prize giving.  North Down has 107 members at the present time and it seemed like most of them were there to enjoy the party. With ponies safely tucked up in their stable, it was time for the glad rags to come out.

The multitude of trophies and rosettes were presented for all the disciplines that the riders have competed in throughout the year and, when the photographer was finished, there was a rush to the buffet table.  Whilst the crowd was being fed and watered, the ballot tickets were being sold, and a big thank you goes out to all who donated prizes and to everybody that bought tickets.  The total raised was £240.00. There were so many terrific prizes and there were very few families that went home empty-handed.

By this stage, the younger members were lined up in front of the disco, in great anticipation.  The DJ did not disappoint – as soon as the music started, the floor was filled and didn’t clear until it ended.  There must have been a lot of tired children on Sunday!

Thanks to the Committee Members who organised the evening and to all the families who got together to celebrate another very successful year for the North Down Pony Club branch.
