Thanks to all who came by our booth at Syracuse. It is always good to see our friends from the east! Thanks especially to all who made purchases! Also, thanks to Doug Smith, Carol, Kelly and Butch for helping us load up. Also, thanks to Roger and Joyce for helping. It was good to see Lonnie Kanitz at a pull where he didn't have to work for a change and Karla for being my "running buddy"! Congratulations to Billy Keegan and Dennis Weinberger on their wins! Thanks to Bill Torrey for handling our ads and it was great to see Donna and Sarah too! I hope that in future years the pull may be moved to later in April and it would be great not to be on Easter.

I've been attending the spring pull in Syracuse for what I want to say is over 30 years now. Always considered by most here in the east as the finest pull we will see all year. As we see the number of entries declining yearly all over the country it isn't a shock that it happens in Syracuse but I never thought I would ever see as few as we saw this year. Because a trip to Syracuse each spring brings with it the expenses of fuel, hotels, food and admission I now have to wonder if it makes sense to continue to attend the pull in Syracuse. Having the pull on Easter weekend hurts. Having it as early as they did this year appears to possibly be a killer. I hope those who make the decisions for the New York club can find another option because I fear if they do not the Syracuse pull is on its way out.

Second time in 38 years i had to miss it.
I think Doug and the New York Club is trying and the fairgrounds is the problem. The location is central for many. If they go further out in New York the New Englanders will have to travel too far. Too bad there is not a small fairgrounds or facility around Syracuse available in April

not seeing your argument. i know people coming from the west that are traveling 8-10 hours to get to syracuse. how is that any differnt then those coming from the new england area? Ask JoJo how many hours of driving it takes for her to get to syracsue.

Diamond, Actually, my husband usually does all the driving. It is 780 miles one way for us. We usually drive to Erie on Thursday and spend the night and drive the rest of the way on Friday. We usually would come all the way home on Sunday because there were people we could go out to eat with on Saturday night. None of those people came this year, so we drove to Erie on Saturday night and then on home on Sunday. The first two years we set up a booth it was great seeing all the people, but there were less last year and even less this year. It is the NYSHPA's business and I am sure they will do whatever is best, but we cannot afford to come again if it is on Easter weekend. There are lots of people from the West that would like to come, but they will not come on that weekend. And, as far as the mileage goes, there are a lot of teams that will not come because it is so far. The teams that won both classes this year were based in Michigan and I realize that a lot of the crowd may be from up East, but the crowds will follow the teams. The more West teams that come, the more West crowds will come. I know when we moved our pull to Bowling Green it was a little of a shock the first year, but it has been much better overall since. But, I am sure I wouldn't want anyone telling us what to do and I certainly would not want to get in NYSHPA's business. We love coming and seeing the people, but we cannot afford to come back on Easter.

last year horses and attendance were down understandable because of easter weekend. this year much worse. unless they do something to find a better weekend next year will be even worse. i think they refer to it as a trend. they need to reverse the trend. only way is a better weekend. if syracuse cant provide that then they should look at other options
