BBQ Pics Available in Members’ Area

George Genyk receives early regisation prize from BGWA Chair Chris Vanderhout

Was I ever disappointed to miss the BBQ this year… great weather, lots of members, and a personal tour of the historic water filtration plant at Inglis Falls. But thanks, as always, to Larry Cluchey for promptly supplying pictures and captions a photo gallery is now available in the Members’ Area in case you missed it, or if you attended and would like to see some good memories.
