Note from Executive Director/Manager Allen Goodsell:
The HBPA of Alberta is anticipating hearing from the government on the upcoming 2020 race season by the end of this week.
Should we get new information, we would like to call a membership meeting this coming Saturday, May 30. Please check back later this week for updates.
The HBPA is being asked a lot of questions and/or hearing a lot of rumors from our membership about 2020 race season funding. So here is a current update – HRA doesn’t have a funding agreement as of yet.
However, HRA is hopeful to have an agreement by the end of the week. We appreciate your patience and ask that you hold on a little longer as HRA and all of its stakeholders are working hard for us to have a successful 2020 race season.
We will send on any new information as soon as we are able.
