As the new administrator I have learned a lot and know where the money that we receive from the gaming machines goes and how helpful it is considering we are a small lodge and everything that we bring in goes to our utilities, and payroll to help keep the doors open. This will greatly impact our lodge and know it will other lodges as well. 

If 40% is the true number that you are taking from us on top of 50% that goes to our Gaming Company, that leaves 10% that we have remaining and that is not going to help this lodge or any lodge. We count on that extra revenue to help us stay afloat and still be able to make our donations to charities. Taking that from us will completely take away from our purpose as a Moose organization where we donate to our local community, to our fire department, etc. 

This seriously needs to be reconsidered
