A major highlight for serious, and not so serious researcher were the daily Q&A sessions held in the Schieffelin Hall. Panelist included a wide assortment of noted authors, researchers, and aficionados of the genre.
|Heavyweights of the field. With the huge amount of accumulated knowledge present in the hall, some of the Q&A's lasted several hours (those wooden benches were damn uncomfortable) covering every facet we could think of.|
|During one session, Tombstone Mayor Dustin Escapule was presented a check for $250 and books for the library from the authors in attendance.|
Mayor Escapule graciously accepts the donations to the town. The books donated to the library were "Inventing Wyatt Earp: His Life and Many Legends" by Allen Barra, "Bucking the Tiger" by Bruce Olds, "John Ringo: The Gunfighter Who Never Was" by Jack Burrows, "Dust Devil" by SJ Reidhead, and "Catherine's Travels: Book I" by Adele Marie Crouch.
Not just a walk but The Walk. The crowd quickly swelled with tourists as noted researcher Jeff Morey narated a step-by-step account of the events leading up to the shoot-out.
|Traffic was hard put as tourist and local, townie and cowboy participated in the Walk.|
|With Spangenberg's Gun Shop in the background, Morey walks the crowd through the goings-on of the Earps and the ranchers along Allen street. Not everyone was appreciative of attention given to narrative. One of the many local Wyatt Earps, with a sour look on his face, was standing next to me as I took this shot... maybe he was waiting for the "cowboy" version too!|
|The Walk made it's way to the actual site of the shoot-out. Here, Jeff Morey recounted in exacting detail, the gunfight and it's aftermath.|
|The final night together, we gathered at Don T's mexican Restaurant for a festive dinner..|
|The end of a mememorable week, with fond farewells and promises of making the next Friends of Tombstone gathering.|
