Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest asks players to vote on teams’ creativity.

Columbus, OH – October 28, 2013 – Scioto Downs is hosting their 2nd annual Team Member Pumpkin Carving Contest. This event started in October 2012 and quickly grew in popularity not only among the Racino staff, but also among the patrons who are asked for their votes.

This year, the Pumpkin Carving Contest will begin on Tuesday, October 29 at 10am when Scioto Downs employees will join together in their selected teams and begin carving the pumpkins. Patron voting will take place beginning at 1:00pm on the 29th thru 8:00am on October 31, 2013. Players are asked to vote on their favorite pumpkin carving by either visiting the Veil Bar at Scioto Downs, where the pumpkins will be displayed, or by logging on to Facebook to “Like” the images posted. The winning teams will be announced by late afternoon on the 31st via social media and digital boards on the Racino’s gaming floor.

Scioto Downs has a long history of community involvement and continues this tradition by their promotions, events and giveaways that they host monthly. Having an event that brings together the Scioto Downs staff with the players is one of the many unique ways they continue to build player relationships and customer service.

“We have a lot of fun events for our team members throughout the year. Anytime we can incorporate our customers into the activity, it is a win for all!” says John Walker, Human Resources Director for Scioto Downs Racino. “We ask all patrons to get involved this Halloween season by voting on their favorite Team’s pumpkin.”
