This was our first trip to Sullivan County through valleys where we were on the brake pedal more than the gas pedal to avoid hitting the many deer along the highway. We had a great time playing at the Legion and met many new friends. We'll be back there in June - hope you can make it to Steak Night with us.

Photo above and photos below from Jim's dentist, Dr. Wilson's customer appreciation day at Raystown Lake in June. It was warm that afternoon and then we had a thunderstorm which prompted Dori to hold the umbrella over Alan to avoid getting wet. Didn't work - we, and most of our equipment, got pretty wet!
