Exhibit A.

Raptors Forum spends 10,000 to sponsor an LPGA event. With that deal the most important thing is the Pro-Am, as well RF is not a golfing company they are sponsoring an individual event, without high TV numbers. Funk, Fancy,Benzo get to golf with a golf pro. During the round they can't converse with her, talk to her, and she can't talk to you.

RF is not a sponsor next year.
