Its been a busy time the last couple of months. I attended AirVenture and then July and August just flew by. AirVenture was fantastic again this year. I flew in with Dr. Lee Trotter in his Mooney and that was an adventure in itself!! We had marginal weather and there were planes everywhere. One group arrival of Bonanzas had 150 aircraft scrambling to find a place to land until the weather improved at Whitman Field. If you havent heard my story, ask and Ill give you all the details.

We had another Chapter 39 Group camp site that allowed our members to camp together. Next year consider camping with us so we can grow the camp site size!!

The Labor Day weekend camp and breakfast hosted by Schindlersand Hasseswas a great success. We had over 50 attend for food and fun. The meal had everything you needed, eggs, pancakes, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit and sweets! Great job and it was good to see everyone that came out! We had four aircraft fly in so next year we need more!!

Be sure to check the calendar for all the upcoming events, Sturgis fly in and Benkerts fly in Burger burn September 11th at 6:00 PM with program and meeting to follow.

See you all at the meeting!!
