    Contributed by admin

    Iowa Greyhound Association Board of Directors phone conference September 13,2004 5:00PM.

    All members were present & Jerry Crawford & Jon Garner-legal representatives for the IGA.

    The board voted to pay the bills for the phone conference & Executive Secretary expenses for phone calls & postage & office supplies.

    Alan Hill gave the treasurers report.

    Jerry Crawford reported that the 2003 purse refunds to greyhound owners & kennel owners will be completed soon.

    As reported in the September IGA news & on our website- a change in Iowa law since the casinos began has prompted us to cancel the bike-give-away.WE WILL NOT BE GIVING AWAY 15 BICYCLES AT Dubuque Greyhound Park & Casino, due to changes of Iowa revisions since the casinos began. We wanted to promote greyhound racing & the dog track but our give-a-way would have to go through casino promotions.Instead we are working on a plan to give-a-way 11 bikes at the 2005 Iowa State Fair in Des Moines,Iowa on Aug 11-21, one for each day of the fair. We are also looking at hiring Bob McKinnon(Maddog) & wife Elsie & Jones-greyhound ,to be at the fair for the eleven days to promote greyhound racing in Iowa,greyhound adoption,the IGA,Down Under Jones IGA book promotion & getting into the greyhound business in Iowa. We are hoping to get space inside at the state fair for 2005.We will show videos on the industry & adoption of the greyhounds,have available brochures for the public, & offer our IGA sponsored book for sale.

    We have decided to do more reserch on holding our first "Iowa Breeders" greyhound auction. It is looking more like March of 2005. There are so many options we are reviewing to make this auction a success.

    President Bob Hardison will be appointing a committee of greyhound & kennel owners to look into what can be done to assist them, if for any reason a track should close for an indefiniate period of time due to illness,quarantines,etc.They will be r eviewing how funds can be secured to assist in any foreseen situation that may prompt such an emergency.(Set aside funds or insurance).

    September 29th date has been set with Bluffs Run on continuing talks which include track surface,heated/covered/sprint path,etc.

    The IGA track committee at Dubuque Greyhound Park will be meeting with management on slowing down the track surface for the greyhounds racing there.

    If you are looking for a nice gift to give for Christmas,birthdays or just to purchase for yourself,please consider ordering the 2005 "Celebrating Greyhounds" calendar or "Down Under Jones Book. We offer them to you for $10.00 each plus shipping. Send to Executive Secretary Gloria Sanders 2397 Utah Ave. Thor,Iowa 50591 or click here to e-mail
