Default Where can I place a bet on the geegees?

Just wondered if anyone knows where I can put a bet on the gee gees in PP?

Don't like on line betting cos it's too easy to get carried away and have run into what I thought were bookies runners a couple of times in bars in the past.

With all the great races coming up between now and the late summer just wondered how some of you more residential folk do it?

If you'd rather remain anonomous will respect this if you just p.m. me

Thanks in anticipation

Hi BL there are 2 bars that i know of where you can place bets, they phone them through to Rob the Bookie who has been doing this for years. JK's is the nearest one for you and then there is Roy's (across the road from Ikebana in Gommar) but i will try to find out if there are any others.

Yup!! BL is obviously not a reliable tipster LOL.

On a serious note i don't think we should start giving out tips on the forum, this thread was only started to let people know where they can put a bet on when they are in PP.
