We had a great rally today. Thanks to every one who helped, and that was a lot of people. Donna had everything well organized and everything went smoothly except the starting weather. It was initially rainy and very marginal VFR weather, but turned into sunny skies by the end. We flew over 40 kids and had to turn away some at the end because it was getting late and we were down from five to three planes. We have eight kids who left information and will be flown individually by pilots. For those new to the event I hope you enjoyed helping out and watching happy kids and parents. I was glad to see lots of people helping on the ground watching over the parents and kids. Terese made over $300 at the grill and bake table.
I expect a similar turn out in October. We need more plane and pilots. All you need to participate is a plane with up to date certifications (Annual, transponder check, etc) your certifications up to date (biannual, medical,...) be an EAA member, and complete the EAA online Youth protection program which is short and straight forward. Donna can provide more information.
If you took pictures please send them to me. I want to add them to the library and show them at the year end holiday party. I took a couple.
