This section will be updated with our responses to questions as they are received.

Q: Is The Loppet Foundation charging $50,000 in yearly rent?

A: To clarify, we are not charging a specific rent number but rather expect to receive that amount.  We are relying on the individual vendors to provide their best offer in the proposals. The 12% revenue sharing referenced in the RFP refers to an example of a number that would be favorable and would be a way to get to the $50,000 referenced in the same section of the RFP.
