UNFINISHED BUSINESS

Eviction Notice: Mr. Morris has the "official" letter. It was sent to the
wrong address and to the wrong club, so there is a question of its legality.

Mr. Frozina will work with Mr. Crawford in getting a letter together
asking for an extension to stay on the (now) City of Lancaster grounds
until we move.

Track and Ties: Mr. Frozina will work with Mr. Crawford in getting a
letter together to send to Metrolink to ask for a donation of track
and ties.

Truck and Crane: Mr. Crawford reported that Mr. Tom Fidger is ready
when we are; also that he will pick-up and deliver the track and ties
when available.

Lease Agreement: Mr. Schultz provided Mrs. Cenkner with our current
lease agreement with the Fair. Mrs. Cenkner will work up a new lease
agreement with Granicy Square.

Granicy Square: We should request a minimum of 15' x 90' plot; we're on
a 20' x 100' plot now.
