Way to go Team Lobsters!
New England Chapter won the Rake Master Challlenge this year in
St. Louis!  Re-armed with our lobster hats, this year's team
connected with our rivals and competed again with our comrades.  
After all the crazy fun the NEC won it all!  Woowhooo!  The RMC
event benefits the Tree FUND.

Congratulations to Rich Herfurth, Bill Conn, Bear Scovil, Matt
