Item 1. Race dates
Discussion was held regarding what timeline our race meet should be for 2021. It was agreed that we would like to extend our race meet to cover fourteen days as long as purse funds are available. Our first weekend will be September 17th. It was discussed whether we should race three days per week or extend the race meet out for six or seven weeks instead of five. It was agreed that having more weekends would be better as it would give horsemen more chances to race. Debbie reported that there is a potential problem with extending the meet as the fair office has rented the grounds for the weekend of October 22nd. Scott is going to contact Tom Eishelman about possibly changing this event. He will report back to the board. It was agreed to table a decision on race dates until the next meeting.
As there was no further business to be discussed, Scott Woogen adjourned the meeting at
