Bryan Shumaker took this shot on July 30, 2005, with 24 Coot-builders present.

When the speakers (Bruce Buksk in orange and your editor in yellow) in the background

didn't hold everyone's attention, it was easy to be distracted by the sound of a seaplane taxiing by.

Notice the twin-engined Beriev amphibian in the background.  Listening attentively

on the left are Hal Bundy (navy shirt with airplanes) and Dick Lawrence (straw hat).
