Item 1. County Fair races Scott reminded everyone that we are trying to promote racing at the fair and encourage people to participate. Purses will be increased this year and double heat races have been eliminated.

Item 2. HHR distribution Joe Faraldo gave an update on the recent meeting of the VEA to discuss the percentage distribution of the income from the HHR machines that will start in June of 2020. Nothing was finalized at this meeting. There was a lot of discussion among the board about how we should proceed. There is a follow up meeting of the VEA on May 15th.
