Some terrific specimens were available for purchase, and the earlier folks got some great deals. We had a vast array of food and drink; our diverse menu included: Breck Kent famous Potato and Egg salad, numerous ears of corn supplied by Mr Tie-dye John Brandauer; delicious burgers and hot dogs supplied by KC; chips and salsa and guacamole that Connor brought along; Macaroni salads provided by Jenn Wien and Groundhog Dave; Pretzels and hummus brought by Petey; and numerous desserts including Chocolate eclair cake brought by Grace Wien; Cheese Pastries brought by Bill Butkowski; vanilla cupcakes brought by Dusty; an immense coffee crumb cake brought by the Klock Man, chocolate cookies brought by Rob Rybnicky; and other treats and snacks. KC raffled off some of his original collecting tools from many years ago, to add to the festivities. The Dalby pool was thoroughly enjoyed by Dusty's kids and Grace Wien and Petey Melillo, among others. Overall, a great day of fun for all!
