    I'm trying to talk Jeff into letting someone record his presentation so I can put it up for viewing here, for those who can't attend. If he has photos, I can do it the same as I have with other slideshow presentations.

    All in favor, say "Aye"

    Hey Dean,

    You don't have to convince me, I just haven't thought about at all, due to all the extreame cold weather we've been experiencing of lately. I don't own a recorder, and I still haven't mentioned this talk to Ryan yet. He probably will go down with me and at least take some pictures. But I'll mention it and see if he has something.

    Jeff,

    I know it's a little bit of a chore. But I thought if you already had photos you were going to show along with your talk, all we would need to do is find someone willing to put a voice recorder in your pocket and a small mic on your lapel. I could do the rest.

    Does anyone here that plans on attending have one of those small voice recorders that Jeff could use?

    Thanks Marie !!! :)

    Jeff made an outstanding presentation that was well very received. Great question and answer session followed where cold damage and remedies were addressed. ;)

    This meeting was very well attended. You missed out if you were not there! :(

    Keep your head up crotonheads, spring is on its way!

    As our friend Phil would say: "onward through the fog".

    Ron.
