NOVA Open 2013

Picture Gallery Vol- 1

Hello all,

The Nova Open 2013 may be over but it's not going to be forgotten any time soon! WOW what an event!

It's time for the yearly picture fest from the event. I think the best way to do this will be day to day starting with August 28 or "NOVA Move in day" So lets get started. This year we needed two "big honking" moving trucks to get everything to the hotel.

Day one ran pretty smooth but was really long. Next time I will cover Thursday where everything came together. 

Till then, later...



  1. Kudos bob! Another great event. I had so much fun. Maybe we should setup a NOVA painters club for those of us in the area who want to spend weekends painting. Just a thought.

  2. I had a blast, and that looks like a ton of work, so thank you!

  3. John- I like the idea. any thoughts on how to make it work?

    Evan and John- Thanks for the Kudos. I plan to have day 2 up tonight.
