War Shots: 2005 IR/CWCC National Competition

After our successful test of the Camp Conron pond in 2003 it was decided to hold the 2005 NATS here. But life, the universe and the Mrs. kept me from coming, so like everyone else who couldn't make it I had to rely on the photos and reports sent by others.

These photos were posted on the IR/CWCC Yahoo web site by Ken Kelly and Rob Helgeson.
