POCKETS CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
It looks like May 17th before we are allowed to reopen but we will update the website and post on Facebook as soon as we are made aware of any changes. If you were a member in 2020, there will be no charge for membership for 2021.
CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL NAP BOARD 2021
We had about 180 entrants in last years nap board. The Cheltenham Festival will go ahead and even though we may not be open the nap board will continue.
Each days selections can be submitted on the entry form on the events page or by email to email@example.com or by calling 01606 558807 after 9.30am each day. As a last resort you can drop off your selections at Pockets, through the letter box. There will be no access to the club unless the lockdown has been lifted. A bank account has been set up for the £20 entrance fees and the details are on the events page. It is going to be a lot harder to operate this year but anyone who wants to enter the competition then please get in touch. We will need a name and a contact number and if you cannot transfer the money to our account then we will make other arrangements.
We may have to put in place a closing deadline for entries, so it would help if you can let us know earlier rather than later if you want to enter. The Pockets Website and Facebook page will be updated throughout the meeting and the prize money will be paid out by arrangement with the winners.
