Photos of the Tornado That Hit High Point During the NJ09 Convention

The New Jersey 2009 Convention had the worst weather of any convention including an F2 tornado that hit the grounds of the high point! Yet it broke at all the right times. Below is an email that went out from co-host Roger Rowlett to all convention goers.
Steve and I want to thank everybody who came to the New Jersey 09 convention.

We remain amazed at what a great group we have and proactive everybody is stepping up without being asked or prodded to help.

We’re still processing the photos and hope have a DVD out soon (much of it was shot in HDTV 1080i glory). We’ll let you know more about that later.
