Yup, we are leaving it up to collect as many more as possible

But now that we have 500 we can present it. We will continue to collect signatures, and we will provide updates to the rules committee.

No llamas or chickens but we do have horses and the dogs got them to vote the first round. I'm having trouble with them though. They don't like that their vote is equal to a cocker spaniel. They figure since the dog is 25 pounds and they are 1200 their vote should count more!

Ms Nikki and Ms Gypsy are glad that their votes counted. Now I have to monitor their their newly opened email accounts to see who is trying to send them junk mail and invitations to join dating sites.

Being a doggy parent is a responsibility!!!

Nope that is the change we didn't want.

But all is not lost. We are still fighting it.

Nothing, the new rule is now in "test" phase. I hear some people like it. I hear a lot of people complain about it. Its a mess for our high school conference because we have kids who fence under both the new and old rules, depending upon which event they are attending. I feel sorry for the kids. I just hope that the rule is as unpopular nationally as it is locally. If so then it will revert back to the former rule.
