      We had a nice time. We attended the SAAPA (St. Augustine Pilots Association) dinner on Friday night, the BAC dinner on Saturday night, and a tour of downtown St. Augustine for the "Nights of Lights" Charlie and Jean flew in from the Gulf Coast of Florida, James flew from Orlando, and Gary E. from Vero Beach. Tim V. drove from Camby, IN, FAST FRED from Flowery Branch, GA, Rap and Charlotte McBurney from Alexander City, AL. Local attendees were Charlie D, and Dave and Jane. Mike and Patty D, and Jane took care of the dinner with Noel S. providing the entertainment. Joe M. won the drawing.

      Jane and I greatly appreciate the efforts that everyone made to attend this event. It was very nice to meet new members, as well as renew friendships from past years.

      Winner of the drawing for a one year BAC membership was Joe M. from St. Augustine. We look forward to his first posting and a warm welcome from our BAC members.

      Galaxy Aviation provided outstanding service to those who flew-in. The Sundowners and Sierra got the same service as the G5's; which included hotel and fuel discounts for all BAC attendees.

      Thanks to all the attendees. We greatly appreciate their support.

      Charlotte and I want to add our thanks and appreciation for a great weekend provided by Dave and Jane Singleton. The SAAPA event Friday night was attended by 100+ folks, great time to make new friends. Saturday night included a BAC dinner, meeting, presentation by Noel Schoonmaker about how "The Aviator" movie flight scenes were made. It was very entertaining and informative. Meeting the BAC members in person, getting their perspectives on the Club, and engaging in some hangar flying was the hilight of the visit. The Night of Lights tour was spectacular. We had a great time, just wish we could have flown the mouse down and back. Maybe next year.
