Putting on a Race Program at Your Fair

Best Practices Manual

This was written specifically for putting on a race meet in Ohio, but will assist anyone in putting on a race meet, no matter what state you are in. We pulled a couple sections out to download separately, but you can also download the manual in its entirety.

Seasonal Checklists

Below are a couple checklists of things to do to prepare your fairgrounds for a race meet:

Program Covers

Using Adobe Acrobat, you can personalize our stock program covers with your fair information - just type your fair information in the blue boxes, save and print or email to your printer!

Program Fillers

Do you have short fields where your past performances only take up half of the page? Below are some program fillers/stock ads and instructions on how to insert them onto your past performance pages.
