It's been six years now since a few of our local 12 builders first met up in August for a RV-12 bull session and the group continues to grow. This time we had 8 RV-12's plus an RV-8 guy who defected from his 12 for the tandem seater, a Sonex motor glider, and my friend Randy in his Skycatcher who never misses this event (maybe he likes the planes, or the people, or the food).
We meet on the ramp in front of the airport diner and eventually end up inside for lunch. The diner folks are very accommodating and take good care of us.
It was a perfect summer day, VFR with scattered clouds, nice wx for flying a 12, and not too hot. Airplanes began arriving early:
The lineup -- a bunch of 12's, total of 8.
