Default Saw you there, Bill

You sat for lunch at a table right across from us and the people we sat down with started chatting. By the time I looked up to come over and speak to you, y'all had finished and were gone. Maybe next time.

I will try to load some photos I took a little later.

Great time there yesterday.
I got to meet some new VAF friends, especially Jessie & his boys, Max & Amy(of KitPlanes), among others.
Got to meet up with some old VAF friends, Carl, Dennis, Bill & Rebecca.
I decided to bug out earlier today to beat the FL storms.

Thank you Bill Repucci for getting me fueled up and running interfearance when I was trying to swim against the current getting out of there today.

I couldn't believe how many people attended compared to 2011.

I think the word is out that this is a great event & will become the go to event in the southeast.

Remember to bring your own steak.

Good to hear you made it home Dan. Heck, I didn't even get fuel before I left. I let them pass me up so others could get their planes fueled. When my son and I left at five we filled up at Anderson before flying the 20 miles home.

I was asked / suckered into "volunteering" help fuel the planes. Having been involved with post TT discussions in the past they figured I might be a good person so help out. Next time I'll just keep my mouth shut.

Seriously folks, we will do something different next year with regard to fuel. In the past we have tried many different approaches and have some good ideas for next year.

TT is not a SnF or OSH but with over 400 airplanes on Friday and Saturday it is getting close.

Parking became an issue this year and we hope it to carve out a few more acres next year.

After the crummy weather last year, we couldn't have asked for better this year!

While I'm not on any of the planning committees for TT, I know people who are. If any of you who attended have suggestions on any topic, please email them to me and I'll make sure they get passed along. bill (at) repucci (dot) com.

Also, they are always looking for volunteers and donations. TT is set up as a self funding organization and as nice as it is, it is run on a shoe string budget with a LOT of volunteers and no paid positions. If you would like to help out, email me at the address above and I'll make sure you hear from someone.

We (the collective TT team) hope y'all had a GREAT time! The only thing we ask is that each of you tell two friends about the best fly-in in the country!

Default Great time at TT !

Just back home from Triple Tree..Arrived Friday afternoon and the place never stopped filling up ! It was my first visit there, and I plan to make it an annual tradition. Met so many VAF people I only knew by name on the web, and saw some beautiful aircraft. Looking forward to hear the total aircraft count for the event...has be close to 1000. Controllers were great handling it all and the Wally World approach works well in my opinion...Cant wait for next year, and hope to see some good pictures posted.

Default Triple Tree Fly-In 2014

Last year I made it to Triple Tree for the first time but only for a couple hours on BBQ night. That little taste served to whet my appetite and this year I am planning to camp out at least one night.

From the looks of the schedule this year Friday night's food will feature assorted buffet tables filled with regional specialties. Saturday will be BBQ night and Thursday is grill your own steak. Un-freakin-believable! How do you top that at a fly-in?

Make your plans, it'll be here before you know it!

And I think that you will be really impressed with the expanded camping area.

Took a ride around it with Pat (owner, benefactor, host, really nice guy) a few weeks ago.

It is DEFINITELY becoming THE place (at least in the southeast) to fly in and camp and have a great time with great people.

I will be there again this year.
I plan on a Thursday arrival after dropping my wife off in Summerville, sc (KDYB). I volunteered to fly her up to visit an old friend for the weekend.
Just happened to be TT weekend.

WX permitting I'll be there Thursday as well. Camping at the Hampton Inn though

Bob should be there with me. I know Rebecca and Karen are planning as well, perhaps in Rebecca's shiny new RV-9A.

That's great.
I do remember Rebecca saying she hoped to be flying in with her new 9A this year.
