Rally Caps

I received a Facebook invitation for the rally being staged on Thursday afternoon at the Fort Erie Town Hall titled "SAVE FORT ERIE RACETRACK RALLY PART TWO." The rally per the invite page is scheduled from Noon to 4pm and the description of the invitation reads:

****Please note: the DATE for the rally has been changed. It is now January 15 at noon.****We were told there would be an answer as to the status of the racetrack's future by January 15. ** If this is not forthcoming by then *** then a rally will be held January 15 - Let's make it big. Let's show our support for the track and that we need to know where we stand. Spread the word to everyone in the town of Fort Erie and beyond, that you can! Bring signs - and horses if possible.

Currently it appears that over 300 Facebook invites were sent out. I think I might scoot over the bridge at lunch time to support the effort (and grab some of that awesome Ft. Erie chinese cuisine), it sure would be a shame to lose a track that has been open since 1867 (see Buffalo News blog here). Keep an eye on the CanGamble site, who always has up to date information on this issue.

So, if you're in the neighborhood (Buffalo and So. Ontario readers), stop over and put your rally cap on.

Did you end up going? By all accounts it was more "wait and see"...not a nice day to be outside waiting for that.

fingers crossed they find a way to save Fort Erie. It's a beauty of a track.
