We experimented the night before and sent out invitations to friends to join us. After stapling plastic tablecloths and a long strip of creamy fabric to the barn, the picture was clear as a bell and the speakers amplified the sound brilliantly.
The turnout was superb. I passed out milk and cookies while October Skies played on the big screen (courtesy of Jack's aerospace friends). Some guests relaxed in their cars while others pulled out chairs and blankets and watched in the cool night, fortunately free from mosquitoes and wind.
