Lenses for Learning Charity Event, etc.

Today was the 5th Annual Lenses for Learning event supporting the Princeton Lions Club.  CMA helped manage the event and it was held at Bel Airs 'n Burgers.  There was a fun run of about 85 miles or so with 3 stops.  At each stop we got 4 shots with a paintball gun to hit 3 targets with various values.   There was also a bike show after the ride, as well as a silent auction.

I led the first ride of the day out and all went well.  It was a little cool the first half of the ride, but once the sun poked out the clouds it got nice.  Weather held out nicely for the entire event.  

I ended up getting the top score on the paintball scoring at the various stop points and walked away with a $20 gift card at one of the local motorcycle dealers, a $30 gift card for Jalapeno's (mexican restaurant), a $50 gift check from American Express and a T-shirt!   I also won a $25 Gift Card from Academy Sports and $40 in gift certificates for a hair, nail and massage place in Princeton (my wife Marty will get that!) in the raffle. I also got a $25 gift card for the new Allen/Fairview shopping center for $18 in the silent auction.  Not a bad day!

Here are some pictures I took.

After the event, a few of us went to the Branch VFD (small community) which was having a fish fry to raise money.  I got there fairly early, had some food, and got out of there just as it started to drizzle.  Made it home with just some minor drizzling.

Good full day.
