Students and faculty gathered one Sunday afternoon in April at the home of our machinist, Bob Grose. Bob truly 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 Bob's workshop and admired the antique Ford automobile that he has restored. We also admired the posters on his walls.

We enjoyed Bob's famous chili, which he cooked in an iron kettle over a wood fire. Sandy Adkins won our door prize.
