new appenzellersetup for outreach

My main purpose in being involved in this hobby is to spread it to others. If you're an outreach nut like I am, please post images and descriptions of your outreach events in here.

looks really cool Walter...

PLEASE be very careful with the access of little fingers and eyes into the focused Sun beam...of course.

I only say this from experience... Obviously you are well aware of the risks but these little buggers seem to get their hands and faces in every possible position during my events...:)

Mmmmm, I think actually that is a bit of a northern England term Walter. When something is very very good we say 'that's grand, very grand that is'

Sorry Walter, I didn't mean you were grand, but I am sure you are :blush:
