Speed and Pace Symposium Postponed Until 2013

Due to logistical travel problems involving lodging and transportation issues, the Speed and Pace Symposium, scheduled for Oct. 18 through Oct. 20 in Las Vegas, has been postponed until the spring of 2013.

At this juncture, the dates are undetermined. Organizers are cavassing responders to insure the 2013 dates are optimal for all attendees.

The organizers have assured HRI that the announcement as to the 2012 Speed and Pace Symposium will be made here well in advance.

The event's spokesman apologized for any inconvenience suffered by its respondees and said refunds will be made in full immediately.

We were disappointed by the turn of events. There were many practitioners we were looking forward to meeting, and learning from their own unique approach to handicapping problem solving and forming an intelligent wagering tack.

The 2013 Speed and Pace Symposium is an event we will look forward to participating in next year. When future plans are set in stone, HRI readers will be the first to know.
