    This is a great idea but don't you think with the upcoming winter visiters that we should invite other conferences???? Like the big ten or Pac ten or Big twelve? They also spend a lot of time here. Can we at least be invited to be in the parade or golf tournament??? Not all of us that pay property taxes are from the south.
