  1. The 98 hours was a typo that went out with the final draft to the membership. It was to be 96 but 98 will work. After reading your comments I will update our website to reflect that amendments to our proposed by law update will be allowed as long as they are within the scope of what is currently written and what we propose. I wish I would have scheduled more than 20 mins for this bylaw vote prior to our regular meeting. Oh well ya live and ya learn.
