The United States Harness Writers Association has announced that it will be holding its 2017 Dan Patch Awards Banquet at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort and Casino on Sunday, February 26.
The organization’s annual meetings will be conducted on Saturday, February 25 and Sunday, February 26.
The Dan Patch Awards Banquet annually honours the best and brightest performers, both human and equine, of the previous season. The award winners are selected by USHWA, which will be holding its directors meeting on Saturday and its general-membership meeting on the banquet Sunday.
The United States Trotting Association will be meeting in Las Vegas starting the day after the banquet (Monday, February 27) at the Rio Hotel and Casino. Harness Horsemen International is also having its annual meetings in Las Vegas in the general timeframe. A synergistic joint session of organizations is under discussion, but nothing has been finalized yet.
Further details will be announced in the future.
