On Sunday, I along with around 200 other supporters went to the local Kasamatsu racecourse to attend a public viewing of the Tochigi – Gifu match

It was really poor weather but I was impressed with the turnout. The pre-game entertainment was led by the always cheerful Marumi Nakano but I failed to win anything in the competitions.

The game itself was pretty poor, but the atmosphere was decent at the event. The food was cheap and so were the drinks. I wouldn’t mind going back there again for another public viewing.
