The annual meeting opened at 9:05am at the Thornton Beagle with a roll call being completed
all member clubs were represented and President Larry Mazza at the helm.


Larry opened up by letting the membership know the year went well with no major issues to
report out. He then discussed the NEBGF and how they were extending the derby season
through December which has changed from the past where the season ended at the Run-off.

Discussed moving the Annual meeting to December so we could have a better grasp on running
season and also avoid conflict with hunting.

Larry also discussed making some amendments to by laws, specifically changing the wordage
from Winners Stakes- change to and or show, which has been previously written And Show.
