GVT-Batavia, NY- Saturday, May 17th

Postby Farmer Joe » Sun May 18, 2008 9:46 am

Caught the GVT making a rare Saturday afternoon run in Batavia, NY. I managed to get some shots in, but it was windy and rainy in the beginning of the run. Later that afternoon, it did dry off to catch some action in sunlight.

Here they are at the "plank" shuffling inbounds for Batavia.

I have to thank my sources for the "heads up" for the Saturday run. Too bad the weather wasn't the best.

Thanks Guys.

Joe thanks for the sweet pictures. I had heard also of this rare saturday Run but I had other things to take care so obviously I didn't go.

Thanks for sharing though :)
