 After months of the TownBoard tabling decisions and afterhours of discussion, at the specialmeeting Monday night, Sept. 23,finally some of the Town of Bison's issues have been resolvedwith motions.

A tractor rodeofollowed the church service. Thetractor rodeo involved where trac-tor drivers had to push a plasticbarrel around an obsticale courseand also drive blind folded whilea rider gave directions. The blindfolded course was funny becausethe women riding would give di-rections using words and handsignals. However, the drivercouldn't see the hand signals of course because they were blindfolded.
