READING FAIR RACES BACK ON SCHEDULE

 

The Reading Fairgrounds Racing Historical Society has just recently received word from the Bern Township officials and the Reading Fair Board that Slingshot racing during the Reading Fair may go on as scheduled for August 4th and August 5th

 

In a recent township meeting, township supervisors voted to prohibit any type of motorized racing at the Fairground until proper variances and zoning procedures were met by the Reading Fair Board.

 

Township officials had heard a rumor that racing was going to be a weekly item at the Bern Township site and passed a bill to curtail any type of motorized racing.

 

Concerned people from the RFRHS and Reading area attended a township meeting guided by RFRHS CEO, Mike Grim and put a lid on all rumors that racing at the Fairground would be limited and that there were no plans what so ever to race weekly

 

At the June meeting after more then one hour of debate, the township officials voted that racing may continue with the stipulation that all ordinance and zoning laws are met. This past week Reading Fair Board members met with zoning officials from the township and all requirements were met for the upcoming fair and talks will continue for an added event in October.
