Swarm #1 Hatched!!

like under-sunny-skies black flies ready to invade, so did our Flys swarm for our season opener. geez, did we luck out with the weather?!!? (some didn’t know we had downpour around 4PM…)

63 gathered to find some dirt; we think 63 returned… 18 of that batch were rookie Flys (Dave Coronato earning 2 Catamount Arts movie tix jist fer grinz); a full third were of kids who extended their dirt experience beyond the planned routes…

…with Althaea Irwin snatching a nifty kid beanie for the wide distribution of mud plastered on her, but the unnamed (to help protect newbie innocence) BCD winner cautiously accepted her regalia in hopes it will find a new “winner” next time…

…and thanks to Blake’s selection of treats, plus private stashes, Flys lingered until, well, the Closers did as their title suggests…

Swarm #2 on the other side of the river on Monday, June 3rd. news on point in a later post… in the meantime, Flys, get out there ‘n bzzzzz on your own on different dirt!!
