David arrived on Thurs. PM and spoke to Summit High School students the next morning at 8am.  After lunch, he visited JHHS and spoke to an assembly there in the auditorium.  All together, he spoke to about 120 students.

Of course, that evening, the community was invited to hear him speak due to the generosity of the club, the Center of Wonder, and 8 anonymous donors.  Approximately 125 persons attended the talk and visited with David afterwords.

On Saturday, David elected to stay over and go on an excursion to Yellowstone, as he'd never been there before.  Going along to talk about the parks, geology, astronomy, literature & whatever else came up, were: Walt, Dalia, Arlo, Mel, and Bob.   After seeing mud pots, Old Faithful, the fires in the Lake area, etc., we returned and we hosted a club dinner for David at Q Roadhouse that about 10 members attended.  I think a great time was had by all and the weekend visit was a nice success.  Next week, he would be off to Jackson(ville), FL, a second place town to our Jackson, WY with no geysers at all that I know of, nor any mountains over 50 ft.
