AJ, After reading all the comments about this year's Messier Marathon, I'm sorry that I missed it. The event gets better & better each year, no doubt due to your tireless efforts. On that note, let me offer you the "official" thanks for making the All-Arizona Messier Marathon the premier event of its kind. Of course, Kudos to Jack Jones as well for handling the less glamorous jobs of arranging for the Port-a-Johns & T-shirts (hold a Large for me at the next meeting). I look forward to the final report.
