    Roll call.

    Treasurers report. This phone conference & Executiv e Secretary Expenses. The board voted to donate $100.00 from the PROMOTION FUND to the NGA Spring Meet in Abilene, Kansas for the 2nd fastest time run in any stakes race.

    March 31,2004 meeting between Bluffs Run & the IGA:
    Bev Yates presented Bluffs Run with a matted/framed greyhound print, to use for promotions at Bluffs Run sponsored by the IGA. They also received greyhound adoption bumper stickers with the "800" number for adopting a greyhound for a pet. The IGA sent Donna Lovely-GPA adoption representative for Bluffs Run adoption bumper stickers to give out to potential greyhound owners. These promotions were paid out of the PROMOTION FUND. PLEASE display these bumper stickers on your vehicles.
    The track & the IGA cunducted their own independent surveys on the need for a heated /covered / sprint path at bluffs Run. The board chose Bob Hardison to meet with Scott Barber to further discuss the sprint path.
    Jerry Crawford noted that Harrah's was working to help improve the live & simulcast handle by mail-outs & advertising promotions of the sport. In the future you will see other track & casino improvements that will help generate new gamblers to the dog track.
    Attending this meeting was Bob Hardison, Bev Yates, Ron Mullen, Bob Rider, David Robinette, Jim Lovely, Tim Harms, Jon Garner & Jerry Crawford.
    Don Avenson noted that the Iowa 2004 legislative session is nearing an end. We are still waiting to see if the final casino tax will be 22-24% & if there will be more licenses issued & whether more slot machines can be added.
    To date we have received nine applicants for the Executive Director position. The IGA will make their decision by June first on this issue.
    The Gilley Dancing Greyhound Drill Team will be performing at Dubuque Greyhound Park & Casino on May 1st, opening day of their 2004 racing season. They will be performing May 8th at Bluffs run Casino in conjuction with The "Night of Stars". To show your cont inued support for the work they do in representing our industry in a positive light & addressing the FACT that greyhounds make great pets, plan to visit them & tell them THANKS , when they are performing in your area. This is just one of the many appearances they will be doing this year throughout the country. All of the greyhounds performing are past racers , now retired. Any donations are appreciated.
