Young Eagles Day and Simsbury Fly-In

A busy weekend is finished. We had our fall Young Eagles event, and while we only had 20 kids fly with us, everyone had a good time. Pepsi donated soda to us, and Hot Seat loaned us their flight simulator system for the weekend. Flying The Hot SeatJack and I will discuss other methods of publicizing the event so we get more participants.

We brought the simulator to the Simsbury Fly-In, and Chuck Drake did a great job putting together a riveting demonstration where kids make a name tag. Vans Aircraft donated the base aluminum pieces, and Southwest Airlines donated wings to attach to the base plate. Riveting Name Tags

I can finally take a break from chapter work. I found a bunch a stuff in my dishwasher filter, so the arms spin again. I also got about 75 shrubs trimmed today.
