During the New Moon of July 21 & July 22, twenty-eight folks showed up to eat, drink, talk, and perform unspeakable acts upon watermelons. Fortunately, the acts were not unprintable. Two main weapons were employed in the struggle to eliminate watermelons from Lookout Ranch. The first; The Bow. A conventional weapon, about 60lb pull, Right-handed. This was a tough pull for the lefties in particular. Second, Potato guns. Nicholas brought the venerable mistmaker, and we brought a new contraption, a breech-loader. Not as accurate as a poorly shot bow, but a hell of a lot funnier. Our cannon was not doing very well on Propane, but Terry saved the day with some AquaNet. Yes, it's powerful. It had a pretty good recoil, and we actually sent a potato into orbit...or at least that's what we're telling everyone.
Extra-special thanks to Scott, our chef, for preparing roast lamb, roast pork, and the chicken! (mmmmmm, foooood.)
(And yes Dalma, Trademark has completely recovered from the whirlwind named Emma. She's more than welcome next year, the cutest little girl at the ranch!)
Mickie and I had a wonderful time, we are glad everyone showed up!
Archers take your places!

Finally, while everyone was out and about, having a good time, Peter and Amy were working hard on a project. So the mystery guest photo:
