The dates for Centre Family Weekend 2010 have been changed to Sept. 17 and 18. After checking with the Danville hotels, we learned the local rates during the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington (Sept. 25-Oct. 10) will be on average $199 a night, with minimums of 3-5 nights. We assumed parents would not want to pay these rates or have to fight the predicted crowd of 600,000+ spectators and teams expected. While we have no way of knowing for certain what the impact of the World Equestrian Games will be for Danville, we felt it better not to take chances, and moved the date. We hope you will mark your calendar and make plans to join us!
