This is one of my favorite summer events that we never miss. Small enough, I've got time to fly away from the booth and big enough there is always something happening. A great group of flyers. You'll see alot of built scale models here, a number of old-timers, jets, just about everything. Layed back and fun. The weather is always perfect. Well, one year it was cold and blowed like mad but 95% of the time, this is just a perfect time of the year for flying in Michigan.

Also, you'll get 4 to 6 venders here and they allow swappers to setup. So, you never know what you'll find. A number of Canadians come to this event giving it a little international flavor.

Thanks Dave. Keith and I try to keep it easy and laid back, and have for 26 years. Man, I can't believe that. Where has the time gone?

Hi Ken,

I'm going to try to make it this year. I don't know how much flying I'll be doing because I'm too rusty to fly my fighters.

I might fly my Stubby that I'm currently just about ready to cover.

I may also have some planes up for sale, as I'm just not finding the time to fly them, with Joey's sports schedule (7 days a week at this time of year), and I'd rather see them out there flying (and turn them into cash to finance some more building...).

The thing about building is that I can do it when it's dark out!

Hopefully, I'll be seeing you soon!

I guess Texas is a pretty long drive. Ann Arbor would definitely be closer.

Going out to meet Keith at the field this morning. He's doing 'check rides' for some of the planes he'll be flying/demoing at the Mid-Am, including the Czechmate. Yahoo!

Always fun when we can just get together and fly.

Been spending the morning getting ready for you folks this weekend. Just back from the store with the pop/soda, water and other supplies for the potluck Saturday after the awards are given out.

Remember we supply the steak sandwiches and beverages. There is a country store just down the road from the field where you can pick up something to share at the pot luck. They have a fair deli type counter there, plus the other stuff that makes poluck's fun.
