Chairman Shawn Wiles wants to remind members that the  USTA District 8 Membership Meetings along with the District 8 and  New York Sires Stakes  Awards Dinner will be held at Tioga Downs on Sunday, October  27.

The informative  programs are run  under the aegis of the United States trotting Association and  Agriculture and New York State Horse Breeding and Development Fund.

“During the membership meetings there will be a discussion of the proposed rules and suggested by-law changes  and  we’ll have a Q and A period ” Wiles said.

 Joining Wiles will be the USTA’s Ellen Harvey.

“I’ll have the usual USTA list of activities and some of them I know more about than others, so I can give a summary of those with which I am most familiar and answer some questions,” Harvey added.

Also present at the USTA Meetings  will be District Directors, Jason Settlemoir, Mark Ford, Ray Schnittker, Mike Kane, Bruce Tubin and Kim Crawford.

The General Membership Meetings will begin at 5:00PM.

At 6:30PM there will be a Cocktail Party hosted by Tioga Downs, Batavia Downs, Buffalo Raceway, Monticello Raceway, Saratoga Raceway and Vernon Downs followed at 7:30PM with the Banquet Dinner and Awards Ceremonies.

The membership meetings and discussions are free to all USTA District 8 members. However, tickets to the Banquet and award ceremonies are $30 per person.

The top horses  in the New York Sires Stakes program  along with the best  owned by USTA District  8 members will be awarded beautiful trophies. But the highlight of the awards presentations will be the Bruce Hamilton Memorial Medal which will be awarded to Wanda Polisseni.
