Day 72 of the 2017 season: Duel venue, MB and HI - both decent sessions

The double venue day turned out to be a decent day in spite of the dire forecast of cold temps. Nearing 50 degrees with some sunlight, that is until the bitter end on the island. With 40+ mph wind gusts as a squall line of rain and ice pellets ended my day.
Chris, Keith, Mark and 3 others were out in full force with kite sizes 6.5M to7M.
Special note: First sticking snowfall of the season on my deck by 8 that night.
