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, Joppa Flats, and anonymous donors all supplied door prizes.
We would also like to thank our staff and volunteers who worked so hard on this event, especially those who parachuted in at the last minute, including the judges, verifiers, compilers, food prep folks, and staff who toiled indoors and all of the teams who toiled outdoors. We think everyone had a great time on a glorious day.
