Well I and my Wife had a good time, the guys from Skymasters were great hosts, Saturdays weather I think discouraged many from coming out. Cool and windy most the day, But Sunday's weather was picture perfect.

Thanks to Seaplanesupply.com for the floats I won in the pilot's raffle and your work running the retrieval boat.

Sorry, I'm not much of a picture taker

Man, I've been waiting for the pictures! Hopefully someone else will post some. I'm going to a nice FF in NH this weekend and my club's is on for Oct. 20th again. Last year was almost 40 pilots. Started just 4 years ago with 6-7 pilots in honor of John Nicolaci it has turned out to be a really great FF. This year we're giving awards and prizes.
