Thank you to everyone who showed up last night - even with the threat of rain.  We got hit with a few drops here and there but over all was a nice ride.
 
The group stayed together - and hopefully fun was had by all.  The pond was beautiful - covered by a mist when we got there - just an amazing view.  There were some pictures taken - I believe they will be emailed out or put up on facebook soon.
