c) Dockside Technology
The Executive have been reviewing the possibility of supporting our Handicappers by subsidizing for an electronic tablet that would replace the old “Race Analysis Binder”. This will be brought up to the members at the Annual Meeting for consideration.
For the 2013 Annual Meeting, we will be distributing a “flash drive” (with the PHRF-LO logo) with the “Race Analysis” information pre-loaded.
