All ages, men and women, young folks and old.
Armed and unarmed.
Perfect weather, if you like clear, sunny. And chilly.
Richmond PD being first class.
Crowd spirit very high.
Extra cell service on site.

A good, successful day.
Stay tuned to the station above for the speeches and any wrap-up.
Kudos to my overwatch team.
