Hi Ron!
Hope you are recovered from the Bash! Tim, Eric, and I wanted to drop you a line, send a few pictures your way, and say thanks again for another fantastic Monster Bash (June 2017)! Every year after Bash as we are driving out of Mars and back to Richmond we collectively agree that we do not know how the Bash could get any better-and by jove it always does! Every year Tim says, "Now that was the best Bash yet" and this year it was even Bashier!!

-Meeting Larry Storch-such a nice man! We're big F-Troop fans!!
-Outdoor Monster Movie Drive-In
-The Bash Band (tell Ursula we need more Go Gos!)
-Props from Joey's Barn
-Zach's performance
-And the newly renovated hotel was lovely!

Thanks again for all you do to make this weekend so wonderful.
Take Care,
Monica, Tim, and Eric.
