Six inches of rain in one hour were reported in nearby Portland on the day scheduled for this UFO event. In light of the grim forecasts of the storm, pilots intending to fly in wisely canceled their flights. Nevertheless, members Bob Barker, Dick Sheppe and Ryan Fendler ignored the chilling rain and along with their three guests, the hardy New Englanders enjoyed a delicious lobster lunch on an open porch at Waterman’s beach in Rockland, Maine.

Perhaps it was the modest attendance that made the camaraderie intimate and especially enjoyable.
