April 18th, 2004 - The first Inland Empire outdoor photo shoot and diorama was held.  The final count was:
 
Figures - around 500
German Vehicles - @ 36
Allied Vehicles - @ 63

 
I know I saw at least a couple more vehicles and some figures arrive after the count was taken so it can safely be said there were over 100 vehicles total!  Armand was our gracious host and his mother was a survivor of the Ardennes Battle of the Bulge.  Not to mention she was everywhere talking to everyone and having just as good a time as we.  The number of people participating numbered somewhere around 20-30 people.  We did manage to get in a group shot but I have yet to see those pictures.
