This Week's Tribal Council Meeting Cancelled

Feather News

Wednesday's regularly scheduled tribal council meeting has been cancelled.

Tribal councilors are expected to be spending time in Pennsylvania for pre-opening and opening festivities for the $208 million expansion at the Tribe's Pocono Downs racetrack-slot parlor. A tribal member trip to the Pocono Downs is scheduled for tomorrow and the grand opening, which must be approved by the state, is currently scheduled for Thursday.

The Mohegan Sun is expected to release its June figures this week for slot activity at the Mohegan Sun on the Reservation.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board releases slot machine activity on a weekly basis at facilities in Pennsylvania. The latest week reported upon was for the week that included the July 4th holiday. The Pocono Downs' slot revenue for the week was down about 20% compared to the same week last summer.
