It was really nice to meet some of you at the event and there were some really nice rigs!  They really gave me good ideas and good inspiration to save money and do the same!  Cheers

Great pictures Rey, especially the aerial ones.

What a great day, weatherwise, to have the blood drive.

Great to see the same faces, along with some new ones.

I'm happy that I was able to donate this time.
