I am Ken Board and am a member of   the Tacoma Astronomical Society.  I want to 
send a huge thank you to Marc de Regt.  He offered his 10" LX 200 to anyone who 
wanted it free of charge.  I was lucky enough to get the scope, and picked it 
up from Marc yesterday.  I will be taking the scope to where I work, Emerald 
Ridge High School in the Puyallup School District, on Monday where I will be 
giving it to the science and astronomy teachers, as well as for use by the 
struggling astronomy club.  

When Marc found out what I was doing with the scope, he also threw in a rolling 
stand for the scope and his white light solar filter scope.  It was a pleasure 
to meet Marc and I cannot ever thank him enough for the generous donation.
