    Thanks for those who attended. It was a pleasant weekend. The snow conditions were not easy, and everyone pitched in and helped with chores. Sorry I did not communicate better about the checkout time and plan on Monday.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
