Jeff recently sent this out to members via email. For those who are not members who might be in the area this weekend, here is the info.
You are invited to attend a meeting between HANA, track management from Yavapai Downs, and representatives from the AZ HBPA.
WHEN: This Sunday August 9, 2009 at 10:00 am.
WHERE: In a conference room in the clubhouse at Yavapai Downs in Prescott Valley, AZ
AGENDA: The topic of discussion will be horseplayer concerns: takeout, signal availability, pool integrity, drugs, quality of the product, and AZ's ADW law. HANA will be presenting suggestions for improving each of these critical areas. Track management and horsemen have promised us they WILL be listening.
If improving conditions for horseplayers in AZ is something that matters to you, YOUR presence is requested and we urge you to attend. We can not stress the importance of this strongly enough. Please understand that this is a meeting not a demonstration or a protest. If you have something to say you will be given the chance to be heard. If you choose not to speak up that is perfectly ok. By simply showing up you will be letting decision makers within the Arizona Racing Industry know that the voice of the player matters.
Your presence is requested and we strongly urge you to attend.
RSVP to me personally.
