1.  See "SEAL SILVER LYNX POINT" -  We are suggesting that we combine the 3 color sections of Seal Silver Lynx Point, Seal Silver Mink and Seal Silver Sepia.

INCLUDED WITHIN PROPOSAL #62 ON THE SEAL SILVER LYNX POINT COLOR PAGE.  Ballot results:  41 yes, 28 no - 69 voters need 42 "yes" votes to pass.  Did not pass.

2. ONLY If Proposal #62 doesn't pass, we need to add in tail tip color as it is currently not addressed.

Rationale:  Tail tip is not addressed.
