• BEECHDAY big Success!

    Beechday - weather as promised - ow! My sunburn! You ALL should have been there!<br />
    <br />
    Best flying weather of the year - I swear!Two Beech Aero Club planes DID made it - <br />
    <br />
    N3649Q, A23-24 (Super 200) w/ Ian & Debbie Smellie, from Richland - 6.5 NM<br />
    <br />
    And the winner!<br />
    <br />
    N2131W, C23 Sundowner 180 w/ James & Sherri Sellers from Troutdale - 139.2 NM<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Also, your illustrious NorthWest Regional Director and spouse were there:<br />
    <br />
    To carry US and the BAC NWR Banner would have been too much weight. Also, I was a little light in the Medical Certificate department, so we drove (ugh!)<br />
    <br />
    But Carrie was there with us in spirit!<br />
    N1927W, B19 Sport 150 w/ Ann & Bill Howard from Walla Walla - 39 NM, and that's EACH way!<br />
    <br />
    Chep & Kay Gauntt and their extended family opened their hanger and their hearts and we had a great time - good fun, and good food! Ben Tuttle and the Vista Field folks made it LOTS of fun to be there!<br />
    <br />
    I'll get some pix loaded time permitting in the Flyin Section!<br />
