Going to lead off with a pic of John Galle. John received some really cool news today about a photo of his but that will be a bigger story for a later day. John worked the Central @ Handley Boys game in Winchester before stopping in to check on the Stonewall Girls game.
The hard working duo from the Staunton News-Leader. Check out Shaun's gamer at http://www.newsleader.com/ as well as the artwork from his partner in crime.

Had to sneak in the back of this pic. Galle was kind enough to snap this pic of 3 Waynesboro Generals loyalist. Keith Ramsey to the left and John Leonard to the right.


Part of the Luray brass that is responsible for hosting the event held each year at EMU. Love the idea of the High School kids getting to play on the college gym floor!
