Re: Greetings from the Arizona desert

In the newsletter I just received from Glen-L there are photos of a Belle Isle built by Dean Berry in Phoenix. I looked and did not see a build log here for him.

Re: Gathering 7 Video clips.

Saturday's weather really put a damper on things, so you may not see as many photos as in previous years. We sent you some River Run pics on the 16th. They were sent to main@glen-l.com . Let me know if you didn't receive them. Paul, I didn't receive them. Please resend to John@Glen-L.com Thanks!
