(See attached treasurerís report for more detail).Ken Nelson expressed concern that the troop has cancelled the October Horse Show for 2007 based on the positive results of the 06 Golf Tournament. The thoughts of the group were that the troop should have continued the show for at least one more yearto insure that the golf tournament would be able to replace Horse Show revenue.
