Pace and Cap Day - Sunday August 23 (Saratoga)

Lets see if we can get together at Saratoga
and Delmar

Last year we had a great weekend Lets do it again !
I know its hard to book rooms and places to stay so lets see if we can
get things going Also Last year we were very fortunate to be able
to gather at the same time Paceadvantage had a group
It would be nice to arrange the same time as them As there are
many of you who read and know peole from both groups

Some ideas I have discussed with Ted is a mini seminar
maybe on Friday night and a day at the races on Saturday and Sunday
Also I would really like to get a collection going to have a race
named after Howard Sartin and Jim Bradshaw
I have inquired about this and its not cheap
Maybe some body can talk to some sponsers
I thought maybe since the 2008 Pace and Cap tee shirts
were so popular, I could make a 2009 The Race Of Thier Live Times
version and use the sales to help with the cost of the race

Lets meet and win .

Bill

Hi Bill

Thxs to bringing this up now...yes it does get tough to book Saratoga

The meet is 36 days, July 29-September 7

OK...from the years I've been going it is the best time to go is after The Travers, crowds diminish and you can breath and get bets in...

But this year , The Travers is late...AUG 29...I usually go the next weekend and catch Labor Day which gives us a 3 day weekend which makes it Sept 4-7.

I know its late but what do u guys think?

Mike

I continue to favour Saturday August 22 - Alabama Day. I hope to be there, like last year for part or all of that week. Last year I stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott, near the Albany Airport - 20 minutes south of Saratoga on the Intertstate. $99/night I think. For the seminar part, perhaps I can get a meeting room there for Friday evening, i.e. with internet connection, projector, refreshments. Or something in Saratoga, but it could be busy...

Charlie Bedard booked seats in the outside tents, and I think could do it again (if I can reach him...). Charlie also had some seats (and friends with seats) at the 1/8th pole which folks revolved through - great race-watching! Thanks Charlie!

Would 12 seats in the tent be enough (technically 2 picnic tables, a bit of a squeeze - start your diets now...). Seats cost $10 each last year. What about the Sunday as well?

Members from PaceAdvantage meet in the same location during that week, and there's a certain amount of cross-connection / good-will and great handicappers and fine fellows.

If there's a good case for an earlier or later weekend - then OK. The following weekend is Travers Stakes August 29, and sure to be a zoo.

Let's try to get something settled, such as we're able, by the end of this weekend.

Ted
