Visitors:
The Tower had many visitors from mid-morning to 1pm. This included a local

challenge before moving on. Many thanks to all the assistance recieved on
the tower, particularly to Dan Lumm who was there for almost the whole day.


Weather:
It was a very nice day, not too hot.

Raptor Observations:
A few more Broad-winged Hawks came through, no huge pushes of anything but
