> Hey Ken
>
> Just want you to know that the South East Early Bronco Event being held in
> Ocala in April has nothing to do with the dialog going on the "lists".
>
> The coordinators for this event had decided in the beginning of the setup
> for the event to only "entertain" sponsors local to the event. At the
> moment, we have a few sponsors from Ocala, Orlando, Jacksonville and
> Daytona. We are keeping it "local" because it is these establishments
that
> will get our business 95% of the time.
>
> Please don't change you plans for the spring event because of what is
going
> on in other states.
>
> I plan on attending the event and it should be a good time.
>
> I hope you will change your mind.
