Little Brown Jug directors meet
« Return to News
Thomson’s grandfather Henry “Hank” Clay Thomson and father W.D. “Tom” Thomson have served as directors of the Little Brown Jug Society. Chip Thomson replaces the late William Millhoan as a director of the Society.
Little Brown Jug Society directors voted to support the U.S. Trotting Association’s rule change proposal on whipping which states that drivers must keep their lines in both hands the entire race, thus changing the manner some drivers use the whip.
The directors also voted to support the RMTC Consortium formed to study the use of Anabolic Steroids and supported the ban on the use of four types of steroids.
The Society also approved the option to race eliminations of the Little Brown Jug and Jugette on a day other than the main event at the option of the race sponsor “The society”. However, their intent remained to continue the present format.
The Society also re-elected Tom Thomson president-treasurer, Tom Wright vice-president and Phil Terry secretary. (LBJ)
