    Aha, Christmas In July throughout the month apparently trumps the benefits of the early start. Message is anything but consistent, they just make it up as they go.

    Those closely guarded WA Trotting turnover figures , they are a bigger mystery than whether Tucker Carlson has got a wig or a hair piece

    How many would they get in the Beau Rivage this time of the year?

    Great value at between $130 to $173 for buffet and drinks package, I imagine it would be sold out and I imagine the capacity of the Beau Rivage would be 150 t0 200 at a guess. Am sure the revelers would be betting like the Waterhouses's providing a massive turnover boost.

    rarely eat at GP but did last night - Barramundi chips and salad $30
    thought it was ordinary
    wife said it was terrible so not likely to be eating there with the wife again 
    Grandson and his mate coudn`t use the new type debit card the young ones are using - they said it works fine everywhere else but not at GP - lady serving said they were old scanners - 
    the wife paid for two parmies  and being growing boys they ate the lot

    When you dine out (anywhere) - expect delays, poor service, over-priced menu and drinks and a bad meal / anything better is a bonus. Bit like a speeding fine - you have just ripped up a $100, and feel depleted.

    However, generally country trot meetings are okay (sometimes).

    Bit off topic , but what about Train food  back in the day , it was notorious , diabolical , youd throw up the food was off 

    Time gets away , but this would be 30 years ago approx , i did the Syd -Perth train trip a couple of times , and i survived on chocolate cherry ripes , i wasnt game to eat anything else 

    On afternoon their , the voice came over the system , look the Dining Car is now open for service , line up in carriage 12 or whatever . So people of course excited to get a feed , there was a hot bain marie down the end with 2 guys serving , small tables and chairs on the left , and a que of about 20 , One youngish bloke , in a singlet hed already got his , sitting right up the front , got his fork and stabbed this old piece of beef , held it high up in the air , amd said in a clear deep voice , this is the biggest heap of feucken shiit ive ever paid $15 for in all my life , well suddenly there wasnt any que anymore
