3. Move to Memorial day regardless.

Motion was made to table further discussion regarding the issue and hold a Special meeting September 7, 2016 (after our show) so we have better data on fiscal feasibility. Motion made by Brian Carberry, 2nd by Carlene McKinnel. Passed unanimously

It takes a big man to show a small dog,
It takes a REAL man to show a hairless one.
