this is all from our fearless leader roger. florida flying at its best every thursday wx permitting. message me and i will get you on the email list for the greatest show going. Turbo out.
Hereís a quick recap on our Thursday, December 5th Lunch at Aero Acres (FD88). The weather was just about perfect... so 52 fixed wing and three whirlybirds showed up. WOW! All went without a hitch. The food was catered by the nearby Carterís Grocery. It was incredible. If anyone went home hungry, it wasnít our fault. Ribs, chicken, potato salad, baked beans, green beans, collard greens, cornbread and peach cobbler. The early arrivals went through nearly 100 cups of coffee and two big trays of pastries. When we tallied up the money... it showed that we fed 110 people and cleared $130. That goes into an Old Fart reserve, to help cover the dreaded event when WX causes a bunch of no-shows and a catering bill to pay.
A HUGE Thank You goes out to my Friends, Neighbors and fellow Old Farts here at Aero Acres. My wife Terese, Jeff and Mary Weston, Jeff and Lynda Hammer, Stacy and Patty Lewis, Dick and Pat Aziere, Bob and Nancy DiGiovanni, Val and Debbie Brenner, Curtis Yeagle, Cindy Voulze, Inge Covey and even house guests of the Lewisí?... Darrell and Phoung. These folks all chipped in to make sure everyone was parked and fed, set up tables and chairs, cleaned up the mess... etc!!! Great Job!!!
Jeff Hammer and Cindy Voulze took all the photos for me that were used in the collages below. Freed me up to do my meet n greet. Jon Schellenger also took a large quantity of pics, but we havenít hooked up to get them shipped over to me. You may see more photos down the road, or one of Jonís great videos.
Another great success. If you have the capability of hosting an Old Fart lunch at your Airpark or home Airport... please get with me, and letís talk. It is a lot of work for those involved, but very rewarding.
As always... Thanks to all you Old Farts for showing up, having fun and being safe!
Old Fart Roger...
