New England R2 Builders Summer BBQ

Yesterday was the New England area R2 Builder's BBQ hosted by Mike Velcheck. It was one of the first really hot, humid days of the summer and the weather stayed clear for us.

We had three droids rolling and others, including mine, in pieces...yet present!

Below is Dana, Ethan and Kevin with their droids...

There were two stars of the show, both brought by Jerry Greene.

Below is one of the prototype R4 aluminum domes. Its beautiful and huge!

And the real star of the show is mounted on Jerry's R2....the booster rockets that swivel out from the modified leg. Its a real thing of shiney beauty!

I know the other builders have more pictures of the event, but there's some of the highlights.
