    Steve-

    I was at Gaston's a few weeks ago for Sunday brunch. The brunch was good and the gift shop for the resort was a magnet for my wife... The airfield is fun.

    Watch out for "THE BUMP."

    Seems like I tend to get there just when I'm almost, but not quite, going fast enough to rotate. You kind of get launched prematurely when you're going not quite fast enough to fly.

    Sorry Ann & I won't be able to make it this year. Saturday will be one week before one of our daughters is getting married, so we'll be busy with preparations. Hope the weather cooperates and everyone's takeoff roll is "bump" free!

    I used to have to walk to school up hill both ways in the dead of winter with no shoes...

    Looking forward to snapping a more current pic of Minnie

    There should be room at this time of year, unless our weekend is also the big Air Tractor sponsored weekend like it was last year...

    Those crop duster guys did have a good time and a good band last year.
