Sam Webb:  Have you thought about or got closer to an idea of when you are going to narrow your list down?

Ronnie Vinson:  "I've already got a little picture in my head. I'm starting to narrow it down.  I don't really have a set time when I'm going to cut anything down.  Hopefully by the end of the summer."
