looking to be a very active committee, looking to partner

Jeff Roy recused himself

Mark Cerel recaps on some mis-communications that lead to a challenge
appeal filed with the ABC
further discussion to attempt to resolve
prepared to accept what would have been the initial recommendation
4 days server, four held in abeyance
we haven't have three offenses, two have not been common

John Brasilian
thanks to Cerel and Nutting for openness to discuss this, mis-communication on my part
if it had been understood at the beginning we would have accepted.
we will withdraw the appeal to the ABC
the recertifications that have taken place will go a long way to helping this re-occurring in the future
I would ask an adoption of this recommendation

so this would be 4 days in a row starting Friday

motion to close hearing
approved, 8-0

motion to have penalty as four days served, four days held in abeyance
amending our original decision
upon passage will withdraw the appeal
passed 8-0
