Very kewl event. Had a great time, met some nice people and even scored a nice 6se scope for my 9 year old daughter. She was of course thrilled. Thanks guys!!!
Yep, it was a lot of work to pull off, but well worth it in the end. And I got my 5 yr old boy a 6″ Dob. We’ll be out at Rancho Saturday night for first (for him) light!
BTW, I love that picture of Packer, the Treasurer, with all the cash in his hand. Classic!
