The Curators of Photon/Photon Collection

The Curators of Photon, which consists of Chris Drago and Mike Murphy, spent a lot of time working at Photon facilities when they were younger.

Chris was the manager at Photon Seaside, NJ and Mike managed Photon Kenilworth, NJ.  When they weren't working they were playing, as Photon was one of there favorite hobbies. Both were very active in the tournaments held around the country starting in 1986.  During their trips, they accumulated a wealth of Photon items.

Years later Chris came across the Laser Tag Museum on a Photon blog and decided to check out the virtual museum. After seeing how sparse the Photon section of the Museum was Chris knew what he and Mike had to do. They had to contact the Laser Tag Museum's Curator and improve the Photon section of the Museum. 

Chris and the Laser Tag Museum's Curator met at the PhoCon event in Laurel, Maryland to discuss what items the Curators of Photon would be donating, which items would be loaned, and the back story on all of the incredible pieces they had.
