All the bills are paid and the accounts balanced so we are ready to wrap 2014. There were a lot of milestones in 2014:
– 1st allowance race;
– Most wins;
– Five race winning streak;
– Most purse money.
The bar is set pretty high for 2015. Frankly, it would be amazing if we could match this season. But what the heck? We have to at least try, right?
Our final balance was $43,710.22. With 202 members, that equates to $216.38 per person. By way of contrast, last year – the previous record setting year for wins – returned back $184.92 per person. If you switch some of those late season wins to the higher pursed Canterbury Park and we could very well have MADE money this past season!
We were immensely fortunate and I hope everyone had a great year. The final spreadsheet is at the bottom of this post.
2015 Canterbury Club
We’re open for business for new members and renewals! Basically all parameters will remain the same: $250 buy in; no additional payments; free admission for the season, etc. The picture process, should we be fortunate enough to win again, will be the same but we will be monitoring that a bit closer as there were some folks who put their names down to get pictures after the initial run that missed out on receiving them. We will make sure that doesn’t happen again.
Closing date for the 2015 Club is February 15, 2015. This will give us enough time to get the money in and allow Clay and I some shopping time. The sign up sheet will follow in a future post once it is ready. Please let Jeff (firstname.lastname@example.org) know of your intentions so we get the money back to those of you that are not rolling over and keep track of those of you that are.
For those of you rolling over, you can mail a check made out to “Canterbury Racing Club 2015” for $33.62 to:
