Direct deposit of purse checks will continue to be the only method of payment for owners, trainers and drivers. If you completed the forms previously, AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED, you must complete the Purse Authorization form. If you did not complete the W9 and Direct Deposit forms previously, you must complete them and return them by email, regular mail or fax. Trainers please make your owners aware of this requirement. Forms are available on our website under the Race Meet tab.



HOTEL DISCOUNT

The Comfort Inn will be offering a discount for horsemen again this year. Contact Debbie for the information on how to take advantage of this. Remember to make your reservations early as the hotel fills up fast.



2022 SHENANDOAH COUNTY FAIR

The Shenandoah County fair will host harness racing on August 31st through September 3rd. We anticipate being able to offer purses that match the purses of last year. Check our Facebook page or website for further information on the fair as it develops.


ASSOCIATION MEETING & BOARD MEMBER SEATS

Our annual association meeting will be held at the race meet on September 23rd after the races in the Lilly barn. There will be three board member seats open for election this year. If you are interested in having your name on the ballot, please contact Debbie by August 15th. Voting can be done in person at the meeting or by mail in ballot.



MEMBERSHIP DUES

You must have a current membership in the VHHA to be able to vote at the annual meeting. Our dues are still only $30.00 unless you select the optional driver’s membership. Forms are available on our website or by contacting Debbie. We hope that everyone will continue to support the VHHA.
