Wish I could, our church puts on a big, very big, production at Easter. It runs on 3 separate days before and 2 days after.
Most years we have around 7 to 8 thousand attend.

Sorry..... Well you could come to the Goose Creek flyin!
02-25-2004, 07:44 AM
Ron if I can round up a tent, I'll throw it in the truck and head that way. :) :D ;D
02-25-2004, 07:28 PM
I just bought plane tickets. Barring unexpected situations ( which seem to plague me sometimes ) I will be there.
I won't be able to bring my gyros so anyone with a two place looking for a passenger sign me up!
02-26-2004, 03:47 AM
Well as far as I know I will be there. I close on the new place just a couple of weeks before, so if everything goes well with the house sale. I'll be there. I won't have my gyro with me.
02-26-2004, 07:01 AM
Well Tim is staying with me as far as I know but Scott and everyone else who is coming that hasn't met before, we all need to make a point of introducing ourselves to others so we can put a face with a name.
I am easy to pick out, I have a shaved head - not as shaved as Jamie Bodies but shaved - and a big beer belly and will be flying a Phantom
02-26-2004, 07:20 AM
I will be there all week. :o ;D :D :)
02-26-2004, 09:40 AM
I plan on being there.... one way or another. I want to bring my new tractor design down for static display, but due to time constraints, you-all will just have to wait until the big PRA convention at Mentone. I will fly commercial down (unless I can get jump-seat in the corp. Jet) and then rent a truck to bring the rest of my Hanger-junk back up to the new home.
02-26-2004, 12:53 PM
Here, I posted a picture of myself, so will be easy to recognize.

Your hair grows fast!

The Aussie Paul plan is to be there in 2005 with a Firebird to demonstrate and sell.
I hope it is a plan and not a dream!!!!!!!
02-29-2004, 04:40 AM
If you're there, then I'll make every effort to be there also. Who knows, I might even want the first Firebird. I would probably want somewhere around 200 horses in the Subaru though.

Is not hard to miss. LIVIN LA VIDA LOCA!!! ;D ;D
03-18-2004, 06:43 AM
I'll be airlining down and tenting on the field, Wed. through Sun.
03-18-2004, 06:44 AM

This is the real me.
03-18-2004, 06:45 AM
I would like to go to Bensen days or even in USA, but with the Bush administration: it is too scary to cross the border! may be next time!...
03-18-2004, 06:49 AM

Ron Bro!! you are on fire!! You are in loveeeee! :-*
03-18-2004, 06:57 AM
Ron, I had forgotten how ugly you are. Thanx for the reminder.
How did you wind up with such a goodlooking wife. If I make it to BD's, may I stay in the same tent with her?
03-18-2004, 06:57 AM
Or you are drunk!! :P :P :P
03-18-2004, 06:59 AM
Chuck were is your picture? ;D
03-18-2004, 07:06 AM
Pretty good one Jose. No, I'm not drunk, but can certainly understand why you asked.
03-18-2004, 07:10 AM
Wait, who is on the picture ,you or Ron? is that a
Bud light promotion? ;D
03-18-2004, 07:14 AM
No, that is Ron. We just know each other pretty well, and pretty much know what we can get away with, I hope.
03-18-2004, 07:18 AM
Ok , Now Chuck were is your picture? ;D
03-18-2004, 07:20 AM
I am going to be driving from Nipomo, Ca. on the third, be at Bensen days on the 6th, spend some time in the museum library at Pensacola on the 12th, go to sun and fun on the 13th thru the 18th and be back to Nipomo on the 21st. If someone would like to join me along the way please let me know. I don't know where to stay at Bensen days and I don't camp so I would be grateful for any information on lodging. Thank You, Vance
03-18-2004, 07:28 AM
Hey Chuck I din"t know that . I already ask for the days at work. :'( :'( what is the new date?
03-18-2004, 07:30 AM
Quadrirotor, The last time I crossed your boder to visit the wind tunnel in Ottawa the Canadain border guards kept me at the border for four hours because they were nervious about the substance on the brass threads of my cane. The time before they spent three hours finding the excemption in a very large book for teaching technoligy. Two different administrations. Both times the return was quick and uneventfull. I think that this is not the place for politics. Thank You, Vance
03-18-2004, 07:33 AM
Jose, trust me on this. I am old and really ugly. Before I joined the forum, Ron made me promise that I would never post a picture of myself. Even in the pictures of me flying, I am wearing a mask so that my real face doesn't show. Ron even made me promise that if I showed up at BD's, I had to wear the mask the whole time I was there. Ask Ron if it would be okay for me to post a picture of my mask.
03-18-2004, 07:35 AM
HA,HA !!that is funny ;D ;D
03-18-2004, 07:52 AM
Hi Chuck, I would be grateful if you would share the new dates. My information was the 6th of April thru the 11th. Thank You, Vance
03-18-2004, 08:36 AM
Hey Vance, the following is MJ's post showing the change:
Glad to Post that Sun & Fun will be starting on April 13 thru 19, 2004. EAA again has changed the dates. So when we shut down on Sunday April 11, 2004 there will only be Mon/Tue to wait to attend Sun&Fun.
Hope this helps some in their plans to attend BD Days.
As for the Dates for 2005 we will post them after May 2004.
See All Soon, MJ
03-18-2004, 08:38 AM
My fault, Vance, that shows exactly what you were saying all along.
03-18-2004, 03:36 PM
Chuck so the bensen day is April 13 thru 19?
03-18-2004, 05:23 PM
Jose, you read it the same way I did the first time. Go back and read MJ's post again. BD's will end on 4-11, then S&F will begin 2 days later.
I'm sorry that I confused some, including myself.
03-18-2004, 09:49 PM
Chuck I don't know how I ended up with her. I guess luck. ;)
Jose no bud light promo but yes I had drank a few that night! that pic was taken 2 years ago while on vacation to Panama City beach florida.
Chuck post a pic, it is ok.
And Chuck I wonder how many people you screwed up with posting about Bensen Days being a week later??? I know you posted later you read it wrong, but you should go and delete the old post so as not to confuse anymore people.
03-19-2004, 01:40 AM
Ron, you're right. I'll do it.
