We would like to thank our Lead Corporate Sponsor Zeiss for helping to make this event possible again this year. Birdwatcher's Supply and Gift, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Jim Fenton, Strickland Wheelock, and anonymous donors all supplied door prizes. Julia Yoshida supplied the cookies and fruit.
We would also like to thank our staff and volunteers who worked so hard on this event, including the judges—especially Madam Chief Justice Ann Gurka, verifiers, coordinators, Lady Margaret of the Salad, and Ruthie. We think everyone had a great time on a glorious day.
