I think I have 5 cans left. I'll double check. How about $25, sound fair?

HOLY SMOKE!!! Craig DID have hair once!

I may have lost the hair but I still have the F-4. Come on now, what's more important in life?

Well the tents are up and ready (for those who purchased one).

Larry, Joe, and myself spent a little more time planned setting up today than we anticipated but will be a lot less to do tomorrow.

Here are some pics...

before the tent guys showed up,
& the action photos of the tents going up... more will soon follow.

Just a day and a wake up out folks !!!!

Registration: Same Location as last year (left side of the Taxiway right up near the flight line), just look for the tent with the RED/White Top on it.

Matt,
I can Guarrrr Ronn TEE youre gonna love flying jets, and even more so, youre really going to like the Jet Crowd. Awesome bunch of guys wherever we go. Always willing to assist, tell a good joke, or just plain socialize. Jacqui and I love flying with these guys. You'll love it to


As Mike was aying, most of the hard work was knocked out today. Just a few details to cover on Wednesday. All rental tents are waiting for their tenants.
FIF Family Camp Grounds are ready to. FBO ( Steve Moore) got out and gave its last mowning and has your front yards looking great!
Cant wait to see you guys rolling in on Wednesday. Actually, we had a couple of guys come in today on the their way back from Joe Nall. What a way to travel. Hit up the Nall, then FIF on the way home.

Seeya soon.

Sooner than u think, pal!! Probably around 2:00 tomorrow to park the trailer and offer my assistance if needed.

About the plates, you are welcome. My humble contribution to the effort you and Mike and Robert put in for the event

Just make sure the "Saleeby Slot" is in place for the event. If you cube the wing span of the Torus -90 inches- that just might be wide enough!

I was gonna come in today and drop my trailer but I spent until very late last night trying to figure out how to fit everything in it. This is the first time I've owned big jets and one of them is a one piece airplane. Nevertheless, I'll try to re- arrange everything this evening. If I can't make it happen, I'll just leave one of them home.

Yes it is a good problem to have, lol. My other jets are no more than 76" long. My F-15 is one piece, 90" long 63" wingspan and my F-18 is 98" with removeable wings. Trying to stuff all that stuff in a 6x10 trailer is hard.

We pulled in this evening, dropped the trailer, and put two jets together and into the hanger. Looking forward to flying tomorrow!

Yo Fellas. We have a traffic advisory for those coming from the north. There is road construction on Rte.95S in Richmond forcing traffic down to 1 lane. You may want to consider the Rte. 295 (?) bypass around the city. You will see signs warning of the construction zone which starts at Exit 79.

Can"t wait to see everyone tomorrow. Steve, I was able to make the trip afterall and we have your Powermax, actually 6 cans. I gotta learn how to count. (8D
