Concessions is not a big deal. I can live with that. I'd been interested in a space in a big tent. There was a place on Navarre Beach that a bunch of us to. It was on the left after you cross over the causeway bridge. Don't remember the name of it. I'm sure Eric will remember the place. He got stuck with a $22.00? bread bill.

What is the rate at the Days Inn?

Who else is interested in attending this event? At least two of us from Austin are interested. It's about a twelve hour drive for us. (I think)

............ Flounder's on Pensacola Beach would be a great spot. Lots of tables, under roof but open-air, on the beach.

Ah Randy, you like Flounder's because of their 'Diesel Fuel'.

Yeah, didn't think about that. Could be a side effect of Hooters......oh wait, you mean the restaurant, not a medical condition, right?

Rob and I were just talking on Saturday about having a dinner/banquet. So, at this point nothing is locked in stone as to where to hold it. If y'all have a strong preference, let me know.

Field access update: I am sad to report that the father of our club president passed away over the weekend. Mark is our direct liaison with the Navy and will contact them about gaining access on Thursday afternoon when time permits. However, this is certainly a low priority for him right now, as we all can understand.

It is my understanding that Mark and his father were close. I am sure I speak for the club, and all of the PCola Jet flyers, as I express our deepest sympathies and condolences to Mark during this difficult time.

I know how you feel. After spending about 4 hours of listening and seeing you yesterday was a bit much. If this Pensacola meet happens, you pit at one end and I'll do the other end unless you and I are the only ones going. If that's the case, you go to Pensacola and I'll go to Waco. That should be enough separation.

Well, I hope more than 3 or 4 guys show up! Haven't heard from any of the GA or MS guys, if they're coming or not.

So, pass the word to the jet bubbas that we are doing this event. The plan is to get Pensacola Jets back on track again as a yearly event. I know it was kind of short notice this year, but we were at the mercy of the Navy. At least they finally said ok..."little victories" beat none at all!

Great!! Glad to hear it. Thanks for the offer of help. I'll keep you in mind.

Yes, we want to get PCola Jets back as a yearly fall event, ideally in October. The weather then is usually perfect, and this past weekend was a classic example.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the plan is now to also have a diinner/party on Saturday evening. There's a place on Navarre Beach called "The Beach Monkey" that looks like a good spot. More later on this.

Well, if you guys change your mind, come on down. We've got group hotel rates at the Hampton, Days Inn, and Best Western.

Of course, I can't fuss too much. I haven't made it to MS A/B yet...I keep saying I'm going, then a pesky thing called 'work' keeps getting in the way OK, 2012 for sure, Lord willing!
