    Had open house today with good turnout (not a switch ). Even had a surprise visit from N- gauger. Probably around 20 people showed up which was good in 4 hours. Any more and it would have been crowded. A friend in Dover just called me, he had over 200 people show up. They came in buses. He said it would take all week to re-coupe from it. But he loved it. He is ready to do it again.:)

    Two guests I know from previous open house events one of which I used to work with. Some of the others I know as acquaintances from other MRR events. Most I don't know at all. N-Gauger sorry I couldn't talk with you more but it is hard when others are speaking and asking questions. Nice photos.
