    The EDO working under the direction of President Greg Adams was able to find an alternative to the Monte' Carlo entertainment.  Several attendees and Board Members felt that Monte' Carlo night had run its course over the years and our Association was in dire need of a change.  

    This year for our 30th Anniversary year, Spangler Entertainment will be providing "Extreme Horse Racing" in Coldstream 4/5.  "Extreme Horse Racing" will give our attendees a chance to win big bucks for the prizes being given away at this years conference.  You can click the link and view the YouTube video of how it works.   In addition to Extreme Horse Racing, we will have a money box, magic photo booth, and guest appearance of Barney Fife impersonator Rik Roberts.
