Well, once again the weather cooperated and the 47th edition of the Annual MARFC Banquet is in the books along with a bunch of memories for a lot of people. It is now time to shift my focus into getting ready for the upcoming racing season. I would be remiss if I didn’t say Thank You to all who helped out by setting up or tearing down at the banquet hall as well as the following for their help in preparing for the Banquet. Larry and Sue Iacoboni as raffle prize chairpersons, Fran Russo as Ticket & Membership Chairperson, Laura Tucker, Dennis Trinklein, Barb Schalm, Al and Kyle Peltier for selling raffle tickets. You folks made a huge difference in the banquet and it is very much appreciated. I also want to thank Wild Bill Barnhart for all the work He does on the awards and the program. He works very hard at helping with getting the awards ordered and the program put together. Bill and these folks take a ton of work off of my plate and in doing so help us to give the best banquet anywhere. We are in the process of locking up our Fan Club Days for 2013 and will have a tentative schedule in the next month or so that you can use to begin planning your travels for the summer.
