Many Thanks to BVM for their continued support of the MN Jet Rally.

BVM has donated a box of goodies which will be raffled on Saturday.

Thank you BV!

If you are attending the 2012 MN Jet Rally - could you chime in here?

We are looking for a rough estimate for food on Saturday.

Thanks!

Day 1 is done!

8 pilots today and everyone flew something a few times despite some big gusts this afternoon.

The airport is in great shape and we continue to enjoy the hospitality of the
Rushford community.

We are looking forward to a great Friday and Saturday!

3 great days of flying, today was the busiest despite the threat of rain - we didn't have a drop until 530!

Thanks to everyone who made the trip, the Rushford community and especially Mike and Barb Thern for their hospitality at the airport.
Thanks also to my wife and my parents for their help with this event every year too.


Picture are to follow and we have some more flying to do tomorrow am as well.

I would also like to thank many members of the Marion RC Flyers for their time on SAturday and for also supporting the event through the AMA as well (flying site insurance as well).

Thanks to BVM for their support - every pilot received at least one raffle prize all courtesy of BVM - Thanks Bob!!

Thanks also to M and M in Rushford, they have provided us with an ATV for several years without CHARGE!! The residents that visit the airport enjoy the transportation and we have enjoyed the vehicle for setup and chase duties.

I think I used more fuel this year than any other year, 25 gallons, of course in the A10 and the UB it goes quickly!

We also got about 7 flights in Sunday AM before everyone had to pack and go.

Pictures should follow shortly.

Thanks again to everyone that made the trip!

Dave,
I had a great time, as always. Thanks so much to you, Mike, and Anne, for the great time, and great dinner Saturday night.
This is one of the most relaxed, fly as much as you want, fun meets that we go to, and one Jerry and I very much look forward to every year.

Thanks Again!
Lance

Glad you guys could make it again this year!. The fire was great and the lime green cooler was even better.

We should have many pictures from the event, hoping to see/get some posted soon!
