Spring Picnic

Students and faculty gathered one Sunday afternoon in April at the home of our machinist, Bob Grose. Bob actually lives in the middle of nowhere, at the end of a narrow country lane in the mountains.


Bob let us take turns firing the replica of the Civil War cannon that he built.

We climbed the mountain to Bobís workshop and admired the antique Ford that he has restored. We also admired the posters on the walls.


We enjoyed Bobís famous chili, which he cooked in an iron kettle over a wood fire. And many lucky students won door prizes.
