    Another good man has gone!

    About a year ago, I started greeting Alex with a big, loud... "LAZY BOY!!!" ...using the best Russian accent that I could muster and maybe a choice explicative thrown in. :) (A greeting I learned from him. Ha, Ha!) But... it never sounded as good from me as it did from the big, booming...

    Wrens CHALLENGE 2018 - Sep 15 - Carolina and FLA vs. GA!!

    Hey folks, I checked with Nandi S., Vice President of EAA 172 (our primary host for this weekend) and he confirmed that Wrens Fly-in is 100% ON as planned and that any (weather related) rumors to the contrary are false. See you all this weekend! Mark

    We will have at least one HELICOPTER at the Fly-in! I heard from Liviu M. that he will be returning from his home base in Jackson County GEORGIA in his Cicare CH-7 helo. That's one more for the Georgia team! Here is a picture of Liviu and the CH-7 from last year:

    Ha ha. Cool. I believe the last time E.B. came to Wrens was 2008... my very first year. I asked him in one or two subsequent years if he could pay us a visit, but no luck those years. It would be great to have the whole family pay us a another visit! ...and maybe Dick and Carol too? How cool...
