    The weather was excellent. Plenty of Spring sunshine, and great snow!
    If you didn't go, you missed a good time. Maybe next year.

    I am surprised that with so many members on here and all the profiles that say they like to do fun outdoor things that we didn't get more Meet Up people.
    Our bus holds 56 people and so far we have 30, so there is still plenty of room.
