Another Cheltenham Festival has been and gone in superb style for 2009. Great weather, outstanding racing and of course, tremendous hospitality offered by Team Tactics! To those clients who attended with me this year, thank you for several great days with lots of laughs and more importantly, some nice big wins! One of my clients operates a bid with winnings at the end of the day going to Charity which is a great idea and raised nearly £200 so well done guys!
As always, the staff, which are key to your day being a success, worked very hard and thanks in particular to my team Steve, Annette, Clare, James and Ryan. Our Needham and Needham boxes are of a very high standard and being on the fourth floor give an unrivalled view over the last fence and final straight to the winning post. A tote on each floor means you can stay within the facility relaxing all day and enjoy the hospitality offered. The number of Guinness pints I poured this year was substantial – personally I don’t know how you can drink it – as this is, with spirits and wine, complimentary from 11:00. Food flows continuously from morning biscuits, 3 course lunch to afternoon tea with sandwiches and cake. Dinner is not required unless of course you need to soak up the alcohol!!
Tipsters this year were Andrew Thornton, Sam Thornton and Peter Niven and some good advice was given although, as they say, every horse there is at the top of its game and is there to win, so anything can happen on the day which of course, makes all the fun of the event.
Having worked the Festival for 8 years now, it never fails to grab me with its atmosphere and just the sheer scale and it still remains one of my favourite events to attend throughout the year. So, if you missed out this year, and yes, you did miss out, then please do consider Cheltenham within our Needham and Needham Boxes for 2010 and I promise, you will not be disappointed.
