The convention itself will begin at 10:00 AM at the Reynolds Recreation Center.
The main business of the convention is to elect three Delegates and three Alternate Delegates to represent the Fourth District at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida August 27-31. An Elector for President will also be elected.
