Good Afternoon to all on the -bb!

Thanks to Jim, ND9M, and his XYL, Cory (spelling?) for a fine exhibition of 
activating such a high number of grids for those of us to work.  I managed 
to work 35 new grids and 1 new state from this GriDXpedition and am very 
pleased.  I could have managed to work about 10 or more grids at the 
beginning of this event but timing issues on my end interfered with the 

As stated on another post, it really made looking forward to the afternoon 
and evening passes of the birds knowing Jim would be on from a new grid, or

crowded but Jim managed to work who and what he could and making the best of 
any situation.

Thank you again Jim and Cory!
