Virginia Steeplechase Association Calendar

Each year the Virginia Steeplechase Association prints a nice little black and white calendar for its members listing the racing dates for that year and including photographs from the previous year. You can join VSA, get a calendar and support steeplechase racing in Virginia. You can see more photos of Virginia steeplechase and point-to-point meets at Susan M. Carter photography. Here are some of the photos from the 2011 calendar.
