Pennsylvania Fair Harness Horsemen Meeting
A meeting was held Sunday at the Dayton Bingo Hall . Treasury balance is $3348. 71. Dues will remain at $20 and they are due Jan 1, 2008. Please forward them to Judy McMullen. We had 105 members in 2007. Terry Schoeffel reported on the teleconference . The slot contribution to the sire stake purses must be raced for. Any rainout divisions of purses will not include slot money. It must be returned to the commission and will be placed in the purse account for the fair final.
Our organization is responsible for providing the trophy blankets for the February banquet. The cost will be approximately $500. Nelson financial and Schoeffel Stables have each pledged $100 to help defray the costs to the club. If you or one of your owners would like to help please contact Judy McMullen with your donation as soon as possible.
The club voted to have Connie Holt repair our back numbers . The cost should be $400. She was given $200 today to help with material costs and the balance will be paid when the numbers are repaired.
It seems we are in a situation with a starter again. Bob Moran is taking a full-time position at Pocono Downs. Scott Johnston’s name was mentioned as a possible starter. If you have any suggestions please contact Terry. Centaur’s promise of a gate will be brought up.
Terry will be representing the club at the Fair Convention and he was voted $250 in expense money.
