NEWS: PrairieCat Closed for Labor Day

PrairieCat will be closed on Monday, Sept. 5 in observance of Labor Day. There will be no PrairieCat support on that day. If you encounter an issue please create a ticket in the PrairieCat ticketing system and support staff will address the issue on the next work day.

This is also a RAILS holiday so there will be no delivery on that day either.
