Sign up for the AFA newsletter or watch the website. I took the photo (with Bob’s permission to post) so only available here on post on the forum so I hope it shows up on your device, if not it will be limitations of your device. I know several photos were taken by AFA staff - Rachel also I am sure they will be posting in the newsletter and on the AFA website. Best wishes CD
