I think the Days Inn is also still holding some rooms.

The weather is brisk this morning on the heels of last nights' cold front. Wish the front had come through a day or so sooner. Still, the temp tomorrow should be in the mid-60's, Saturday 70 or so, with the winds settling down. Looks like very nice.

Either Milton Airport (2R4/Peter Prince), or Pensacola Aviation Center, the FBO at Pensacola Regional, should have Jet-A.

I was there for most of the morning to early afternoon and it was a great turnout for Friday and I would say there were at least 20 pilots there. Great flying from all the guys and great weather, not a cloud in the sky except for the smoke from the skywriters practicing for the Pensacola airshow. Randy was taking lots of pictures, so I am sure he will upload them soon. Looking forward to heading back out tomorrow morning. Have a safe trip down and see you tomorrow! Take care and all the best.

Jason

KC, it was great to meet you! Thanks for coming down and supporting the event. FB, you have one nice F-16. Congrats on the waiver!

I started a new thread here: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10808020/tm.htm to keep folks from having to wade through a few pages of admin stuff leading up to the event. This is where I'm posting pics about the event itself.

Thanks again to all those who came to PCola Jets. We had 27 registered pilots! This level of support will help us tremendously in restablishing this event.

Cheers,

Sluggo
