A Monumental Feast
Catering for the massive crowd that celebrates at Greyville Racecourse in Durban on Vodacom Durban July Day is an operation of monumental proportions for Gold Circle and for the many private catering organisations in the city who help to feed the hungry and thirsty patrons who occupy the formal restaurants and those who enjoy the day in picnic sites and the massive marquee village on the golf course.
With no race meeting in the week leading up to Vodacom Durban July day, some of the preparation will be started earlier in the week, but the real operation moves into gear on the Friday before the raceday when the staff will be working well into the night.
Then it is a short break to replenish their energy and enthusiasm and its back to work in the early hours of Saturday morning when it all shifts into overdrive. The work tempo increases at this stage when the bulk of the food preparation takes place and by the time racegoers start arriving at the course the scene is very much set for another bumper feast to compliment the exciting racing on the day.
