Fla Dot Net Activities

Above, Sam Abraham setting up for his presentation. This was both challenging and delightful. Our normal presentation inside was double-booked by a political event. The 'Casa Maya' manager gracefully offered us the outside patio and full support at that location. This included tablecloths over his front window for a projector screen to replace the flat-screen TV that we would normally use inside. Also, we had just had our first rainstorm in several months, which gratefully paused a few hours for Sam's presentation. Here was the 'Menu'.
