It has been over a decade since I attended this even, I wasn't going to miss the 30th anniversary, I got to see guys I haven't seen over a decade, I got to fly my Boomerang around 3 times today, the final landing with a wheel up, it was one of my best landing.

Yes, awesome time. I’m all flown out!! And even MORE broke! Joe has the best auctions.

One of the best things about the auction was how much we won auction items and then gave them to the bidder just below us.

Best group of guys/gals I tell ya!!

Bobby won the coveted Colonel Thacker award (look up the colonel!) for how gracious he is with everyone!

The willow is dusty and dry and the best place to burn Kero and make friends!!

Yeap! Raffy had one of the best RVs spots at the event, in the morning we were having our coffe and watching the first landings of the day right through the RVs window.

The weather was perfect, light winds over the runway, clear skies, very organize event, lots of flying done all day Friday and Saturday, we also did some night flying, I had my N Radiant and we had fireworks display on Friday and Saturday night.

This was the line to take a start up spot to go flying, most of the time it was short but constant, the two Hawker Hunters about to go flying.

Look at the flag on the first pic, taken around 5 pm Fri.

Like I said, very well organized event, a big thank you to the BARKS members that gave their time to volunteer to help on the event.

Thank you.

These are some of the for sale jets, there were some great deals for those looking to buy their next toy the F100 was sold.

The DreamWorks trailer was on site.
