Annual Track Field Trip
08/20/2016 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The date has been set for our annual SEGC “track field trip” to the Ebro Greyhound Park near Panama City, Florida. The group had a wonderful time last year and this year promises to be even better. Bring your children, your friends, or anyone you like to spend time with. There are many hotels in the area and the beach is not far away.
We will once again have our own inside viewing area and will be able to order from the menu for our meal. We can visit the gift shop and eat between weigh-in and the first race. We will have free admission, free programs, have a race named in our honor with a page about SEGA in the race program, be welcomed over the PA system, and have our group picture taken on the track with the winning Greyhound in our designated race. The last two years, the Greyhound that won our race was from the racing kennel that we visited.
The schedule will be as follows (all times are Central Daylight Time):
- 3:00 — Arrival at and tour of the adoption kennel (This is the kennel where most of our SEGA dogs we adopt out come from)
- 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. — Tour of the Ray Thurber racing kennel. This is the one we visited last year. We will need to be out of the racing kennel no later than 4:30 so the trainer can get ready for weigh-in
- 4:45 to 5:15 p.m. — Weigh-in
- 6:30 p.m. — First race
We need to let the track know approximately how many will be in our group, so if you are planning to be there, please email the event organizer so we can add you and your party to the list.
SEGC looks forward to another wonderful experience!
