One of the biggest highlights of the 2012 season at the Palometa Club was the honor of hosting Mr. Bernard Victor Kreh and a handful of his friends earlier this month. You can see our other related trip reports from the "Lefty Week" in our blog archive. Lefty took the time to write an on-site [...]
