      • Increase the pouring/food station fee to $200. 55 @ $150 = $8,250 | 55 @ $200 =$11,000 There were no objections to increase pouring station to $200

      • Break for vendors who want both food & pouring (package deal)

      • Have food vendors stay open 30 min after pouring stations close

      • Have food vendors increase their inventory

      • Increase the early bird ticket price by $5. 400@$30=$12,000 | 400 @$35 = $14,000

        • $2750 + $2000 = $4750.00 (Could fund both mirogrants annually) 

        • One objection to increase tickets to $35

        • We will take it back to figure out where the increase should go
