Swarm Six Pix ‘n Word Mix

with a well marked course and suggestion of distant reaches…

…and rapt attention of Flys to details by Joe…

…apparently some of our 65’ish Flys anticipated a few hours to find the way home!!

Abel ‘n Thatcher screeched across the Finish (this shot a replay cuz our Chief Camera Dude couldn’t open the lens fast enough for the original sprint; and for the glory of the shot, why wouldn’t they recreate their flash??) to win the Low Center of Gravity Division 1M Sprint…

…eventually followed by winner of the Lower Center of Gravity But Served by My Personal Mule 1M Saunter Division… and a whole bunch of other Division winners each earning pretty much just the thrill of finding home w/o a crisp enough finish line pic to post here, with Lisa rounding out the field to garner Smoothest Sweep ‘n Lookin’ Cool ‘n Zippy 5K Division honors.

of course, the crowd thickened…

…as Joe prepared to dole out prizes, more than a couple accompanied by animal shrills that could shatter windows. Flys attending will remember the volley return of the BCD from the Muller clan back to the Dorsett clan (each now having won the honor more than once), raising anticipation of whether this will remain a two clan challenge into our last two Swarms.

thankfully, trees softened the day’s heat while roaming, but all sought limited shade on either side of said wandering…

…with hopes that August’s gatherings won’t suffer oppressive heat to close out our season. ’til we convene again on the 12th in NH — come back here or our private FB page a few days beforehand for details on location, etc. — get on out there and find more dirt!!
