WLS got lucky today and had just a great day for their event.  Sunshine, breeze and not too hot.

 I got to meet some fellows from other clubs who had come to visit WLS and generally had a fine time. I will forego any more chat and get to the photos.  As usual if I make any errors matching names to photos don't hesitate to let me know.  errol.groff@snet.net

I took a slew of photos today and will probably split this into two pages to keep the load time reasonable for you guys on dial up.

A note about the video clips:  Because they are very large files I suggest retrieving the MPG clips like this,  right click on the camera icon, then left click on "Save target as",  tell your computer where you want the file to be saved then resume browsing.  After the file is saved look at it then delete if desired.  The WMV files should work fine just by clicking on the icon.
