    Why did the date change? It's been scheduled for a while and now a month before the event it changes.

  2. Honestly, the Richland Creek Run required a lot of time and resources, and the date got here a little sooner than we expected. It made sense to move the sale date to make sure folks had plenty of time to find out about the sale and participate. Hope to see you at the sale.
