Richard,

Once again, thanks for a great event! The weird flea market, the demos, the talks - all were of a high caliber and very entertaining. I attach the photos below.
Photos include:
1 - a view of the goodies being sold outdoors
2- another view of the market
3 - a DRSSTC (double resonant solid state Tesla coil) discharge
4 - a pole pig distribution transformer hooked up as a jacobs ladder in daylight
5- Tim Raney's fine poster presentation of his self-study work (in the back is Richard's Fusor IV)
6-another view of Tim Raney's setup with his thermo-electromagnet, which he demonstrated for the crowd -> a one-turn electromagnet run off the seebeck effect that could life 200lbs(?)

More thanks go to Dave for his addition to the image pile. I might note that the cars seen in the first image are stacked three deep with unseen rows behind them all the way out to the street in front of my home. We had more vendors this year than ever.

For Rich Feldman......The wives, wisely, just did not come! My wife (Kit) collected the admission toll until 12 noon. A mom or two was there shepherding those under 18. One or two girlfriends were seen minding and collecting for their boyfriend's seller pile while he was off making deals on stuff he wanted. Finally, we must not forget Frank's daughter, Ashley Sanns and Kim Goins of NRL, the two scientific fems on site. The ladies were there, just not imaged much as guys have much higher priorities around cool stuff and goings on with kindred spirits all around them. Thus far, only Kim Goins is imaged in Dave's second pix. She is seen in a white "t" shirt in the distance next to the telephone pole on the right side of the picture. No Ashley pix yet, but I assume thousands were taken of her.

I hope to see more images. Cameras were constantly clicking all over the place.

Note* I feel I have now identified all the folks in the group pix in my original post to which, I have also added more new info. You might want to re-read it.

Hi Richard,

Thanks so much, as always, for a really fun time. Highlights for me:

-Richard's fusor hits a new milestone in neutron output

-Bill Kolb's stealth handheld coil gun tore a new one (tore two new ones, to be precise) in a Granny Smith apple

-Someone trucked a monster 14.4-kV pole pig from Alabama (wasn't that it?) and set it up in a Jacob's ladder, resonating the secondary with a capacitor to produce arcs several feet long.

-A nice twin solid-state Tesla coil was presented.

-Paul "The Perfesser" Schatzkin hosted a meeting about Fusor.net

-Quite a nice range of evening talks

I look forward to next year!

-Carl

Thanks Q. Nice Arczilla shots. This thing was fearsome.
