this one time, at NEAT fair....


And now for something completely different, neat fair has been going on for what 14 years now? And it seems to have accumulated a fair pile of NEAT lore. So here is a thread to tell stories about " that one time at neat fair..... when...."

Remember when Mike took off from the flight line and lost control and crashed into the tents 100yds away..... The airplane went through the canopy and took out three other airplanes.....Only to find out that it was his tent and his airplanes that he crashed into

Just to clarify - - Carlos is not referring to me, Mike.

The only thing not covered in grass that I've crashed into is Carlos noodle (at Dunkerhook flying his crazy micro delta). DOH!

How about a few years back when the place flooded out because of the hurricane. There's only one bridge in and out of the campground!

... Carlos got so trashed that instead of setting up his tent and crawling in (which was wayyy to difficult at that point in time) he decided to just wrap it around himself instead

A whole group of us sat around the fire ring and laughed at each others jokes, ate fire-popped popcorn, shared dinner and even flew a few planes.
Bill from Syracuse NY, Charley from Long Island, Glenn from Long Island. Trey, Jamie from Camden NY, Pam and Jim from Canada (originally England), Brian and Mary Lou (and Gracy Mae) from Lake George NY, Mark and Ellen from Argyle NY, Susan and Wayne from Essex Junction VT, and Me from Ohio
There were a whole lot more that came in but there was some apple roasting and some Scotch involved, so not all of the names stuck.

I hope that I can place the names with the right faces this year!

Someone didn't remember how he got back to his camper this year, but we reminded him of it with the video of him being taken back in a wheelbarrow. LOL.
