      On Sunday, March 19, we held our annual racetrack event at Tampa Bay Downs in Oldsmar. Even though we hold this event every year, no one gets tired of coming so we always have a great turnout. We were only allowed 50 tickets and they sold out very quickly. We had 3 cancellations and, unfortunately, no one on the waiting list could attend at the last minute.

      We will be doing this event again next year, so please get your reservations in as soon the date is announced. We had several winners this year and everyone had a great time. I only bet $2 to show and I won over $14 on the first race!!!! That was much better than in previous years when I walked away with 20 cents per race.

      This event is always a day where everyone can mix and mingle with each other with lots of time between races.

      Those picked to go down to the Winners’ Circle to have their pictures taken were: Scott Suits, George Orndorff, Nancy Merada, Michael Gulick, and Rhonda Bowers
