pic: Baxter and Lakewood circa 1997

Found this while digging for photos for another post. This picture was taken at the Midwest Regional in 1997.

To this day this was one of the most impressive machines I have ever seen. Its hard to tell from this shot, but the most amazing feature was a series of cables that ran from the base to the end of the arm to operate their tube deployment mechanism.

Not to mention it was completely powder coated.
