Wow! That was a great talk by Barbie. She knows her stuff, is well-organized, and entertaining. Thanks to Shawn for booking her.

Good raffle and auction, too. (The auctioneer was weak, but what can you do?)
Thanks all! Who do I thank specifically for the enormous amazon sword and the finnex light??

Matt, you did a great job auctioneering, thank you! PVAS has been giving people the opportunity to step up and try out auctioneering for a few minutes at a time during their auctions. I think this is a great idea and something we should do too.

Aw, shucks, thanks! I've been thinking I should do it at PVAS at some point.
