A day at the races, Fonner Park

You could temporarily rename Fonner Park as "Goose Downs" right now...

I caught some grief from another Hells Angel for taking this photo and he got all tough on me and demanded I delete it. I deleted one image and that satisfied him. I took like five others...

The weather took a turn after the third race. The temperature dropped nearly thirty degrees in an hour. I fought changing sunlight all the time I was there.

I agree nice pictures.  That is crazy how many geese are around the track.

Holy schnikes!  

The second, third, and to a certain extent fourth pictures look more like a swarm of locusts than a flock of geese.

Derby Day, 2015 at Fonner. Nearly standing room only at mid afternoon.

A little Dixieland swing throughout the day. Plus, the coolness of having a "live" First Call fanfare.

"Mudders Day", Sunday racing at Fonner Park with a couple of inches of rain already down. The track reportedly was in great condition as they sealed it overnight, it only looks sloppy on the top.
