Ralph Hants took Joyce Buckland and me up to 30 feet in the lift to get some great shots of the entire venue. At the end of the shoot, I homed in my favorite vehicle.

At 3 pm, the awards were given out, vendors began packing up, cars began heading home. By 4 pm, only a few remained, our day was over. Well almost. We had a little barbecue for ourselves. It was a very good day.
