Lowell, well I told the wife about this event just last night, not sure how we got on the subject LOL! I will be home right before this but will be at Disney world with the Family. I did give a heads up for next year though, im planning to hit all the southeast events and hoping to make this one. May be a nice chance to fly my own plane across country! Good luck with the event again this year!

This year's Best In The West, I have hired for the second time, The Atomic Punks to play for us, by many request to me if I was going to re hire the band for this year. They were awesome and for those who did not stay and listen to them last year, you missed a great show. The Atomic Punks are an early Van Halen Tribute band with songs from the David Lee Roth era. Voted best tribute band for 2013 in the US. They will perform on Friday night after the pilots dinner. All registered pilots are free for dinner, all others who would like to enjoy dinner with the pilots are more than welcome to join us, you may purchase a dinner ticket on the BITW website. I encourage all for this year to stay and watch/listen to the band to support them. If you are a Van Halen fan, you will be very much entertained as they are awesome.

Atomic Punks put on a great show last year. Amazing guitar player. I thought it was 1982 all over again.
