Hey Tony,
The ice shots were just north of Seattle....in Mt. Vernon, Washington.
Since that day, all has melted..and temps have risen. Your daughter should be fine and paint should have a chance to dry now...ha ha. Any word on the group photo? ...anyone?

Some Conclave Photos... then sign of winter in Washington State heading home.
I am hoping Dean Ross will post the Group Shot here as well.
(or the Moderator can move these to the Deadman post if more appropriate!)
Thanks
