hualapai lodgeWe had a wonderful and memorable meeting at Hualapai Lodge, Peach Springs on Monday, September 25.  Many thanks to our hosts, Grand Canyon West and the Hualapai Tribe. Several other local members, including Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters, Grand Canyon Inn & Caverns, Cella Winery, and Kingman Visitor Center, hosted us at a variety of activities. We had a good turn-out, and a valuable experience was had by all.
