The hail I got was anywhere between pea-sized and a bit smaller than a golf ball, but it was early in the evening. I didn't set up my tarp the first go-round because I was scared of damaging it. I got over that the next day when a chunk of ice beaned me on my cheekbone. Held up fantastic!
Sounds and looks like you guys had the better weather...and food...and company. I think my feet are still wet.
