PHX Spotters Day 2011

By: Category: EventsFriendsPHXSpottingUncategorized

Our second annual PHX Spotters day 2011 was a complete success. The staff at PHX Spotters started planning this event about 3 months ago. We decided to plan the event for November 5th, 2011. Even with there being a couple other events in the surrounding areas of Phoenix we decided the day must go one. Invites sent out via Facebook and Twitter. There is no turning back. The day before the event and the weather is not looking to good for our event. The forecast for Saturdays event was an expected high of 69 degrees and sunny. Well the morning of the event, I open the garage and all I see is dark clouds and the smell of new rain is in the air. But like I said the show must go one. There is no way this can be cancelled.
