11 of the 17 players made it out for the evening's entertainment, meeting
at the Greyhound racecourse in Nottingham around 6:30pm. The
smell was the abiding memory, closely coupled with the reason for the
smell providing most Allstars' betting strategy. The 'lighter' the dog
from observing each hound's pre-race 'ritual expulsion' generally saw
the money following their nose. This strategy had its moments, and a
subtle variant of this general rule enabled Mr Kit to pocket a cool
£55 profit (4 race wins) on the whole venture.
Group Shot - Whilst Andy K collected more winnings, the rest of the Allstars took the opportunity for a group pose.

The Allstars then returned to the Big City, enjoying a fine culinary experience in the Cumin Indian restaurant on Maid Marion way, after first having imbibed some ale and choice 'shots', whilst recounting tales of past and present in the Allstars-friendly Castle Bar.
