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 (email@example.com) 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:

Can I get my money forwarded to the new owner club? …so put it towards the $2000 or whatever that buyin ends up being. If not then refund me and I’ll write a new check to the new club. I’m assuming the new club will also have free entry? Thanks Amanda

The alumni group buy in will be $1000. It has not been determined yet if we can roll over to the alumni group. The track has been nice enough to authorize free admission for Alumni Group members for the 2015 season.
Ted, you may want to modify the dates in the body of the new agreement for the Racing Club. Many of the dates are for the 2013 club in the body of the agreement. Thought it may want to be changed before we start sending them in.
I took down the agreement and I’ll go ahead and post the new one when we have it ready. Thanks!
For those of us who are not getting back into the racing club, do we pick up our checks or will they be mailed to us?
Also, very glad the horses did well, too bad the wins weren’t at Canterbury being we are the Canterbury Club. It would have been nice to see the break down each month of the vet bills, etc instead of a lump sum amount on a spreadsheet. I believe that would have been a great learning tool for us to see how and why everything is billed.
It was fun being part of the club and good luck in the future
Checks will be mailed out.
Dates in the contract need to be updated to 2015. There are a few spots that still say 2013.
Thanks. As I mentioned in a previous reply, I took down that form and will repost in a spectate post when we have the new one.
Just an FYI When you OPEN 2014 Financials it is headed with the year 2013. Just thought I would point that out.
Is 2015 OPEN to NEW MEMBERS?
Forget MY QUESTION — I see 2015 is open to new members.
I will roll over to 2015 membership.
I will send my $33.62 to Jeff.
