The party begins at 8pm and will be held upstairs in Donehy & Nesbitts 'Party Bar'. Most of the main prizes for the year will be handed out, in addition to the club's annual awards for Clubperson of the Year, Best Newcomer and the hotly contested Cowboy/Cowgirl of the Year, for the person who brought the most dishonour upon the club during the year.

The following morning, the annual Club League Christmas race will take place. Sign on is at 10:30am at Caffrey's in Batterstown, with the race due to start at 11:30am. The race is open to all members who paid their Club League dues for 2011. There will be tea and sandwiches in Caffreys after the race.

Orwell's own Christmas race will take place in Roundwood the following Sunday, the 18th of December. Like last year, it will follow the format of a 2-up, Guess Your Time TT. Teams of two are asked to guess their time before the race and are not permitted to use watches or computers during the TT. The winners will be the team who come closest to their estimated time.

Sign-on will open outside Kavanagh's pub in Roundwood around 10:30. Roll out of Roundwood will be about 11 and will take in the course beforehand the start.

The first pair will be off at 11:30 racing back towards Roundwood. Soup and sandwiches will be served in Kavanagh's from 12.
