By Lynn Hutchinson: Photos by Dave Hutchinson: We held our annual Tampa Bay Downs event on March 10, 49 people signed up to attend. This is always a big hit with our membership. It is a fun afternoon with lots of food and betting. Even though some of us win and some of us lose, it is always fun. What makes this such an enjoyableafternoon is that there is plenty of time for the members to mingle and talk to each other. This year we surprised everyone by giving each person $2 so their first bet was on the Club. I am here to tell you that it really makes a difference to put a bet on a horse. From personal experience, I can tell you that Dave placed his first bet for $2 to show and won $4.60 on that race. He surprised himself by actually having fun, although he will be the first one to tell you he doesn’t like betting. It really was a fun afternoon. The food was very good. I loved the carved beef, which was very tender and rare - just like I like it! If you wanted it more well-done, you could have had it sliced from the other end of the roast. And, what a choice of desserts! No one left hungry! We will definitely be doing this event again next year.
