    Default Melbourne Cup Day!!!

    We are organizing a late lunch at our local pub ( very kid friendly ) as they have a back room set up for families with big TV,s so the kids can run around without disturbing everyone else! DS actually won $4000 last year with the bet my dad made for him
    so fingers crossed he does it again!!

    I'm going to try and get the afternoon off work, so I can watch it at mum's place with her. It's fun to scream at the tv by ourselves

    I've told SIL that her babies going to come during the race - just to be difficult.

    Im one of those people who dont do anything for it. Dont watch it, dont put a bet on it, dont follow it, dont care. My brother often travels to Melbourne for a boys week and goes to the race otherwise they always do something massive here. We are very opposite.

    Off-topic - but how early can you put a bet on? I don't gamble, but its the Melbourne Cup it doesn't count lol. We have a TAB at work but we're not allowed to use that particular one because we're employees. Can I do it the day before?

    This Sunday you can start to put them on:-):-)I always put mine on Monday though incase there is late scratchings etc
    most tabs will open early Tuesday we are opening at 7.30am so you could always put them on Tuesday morning:-)
