Gosh, Phil! That has to be $500 worth of crab-legs!...at least by California prices. I hesitated to move to Charlotte because of Ron living in the area ;), but now I have an incentive to be able to make your fly-in every year.

Yea Ken, When Mary feeds people she feeds them.....That is only part of the feast, we had a mess O shrimp also with all the trimings. Plus Mary's special dipping sauce. It was too good for words.

Left my camera at Scott's so I will try to post some more photos tomorrow.

Had a right nice turn out today. I think about 9 or 10 flying and one static. Those that didn't come, you missed some of the best flying weather that's been around here for some time.

Ron A., Scott, Screw and a few others brought cameras, I'm sure they will post a few also.

Later, Phil

More Photo's - some of the kids

1- John's kid getting a ride with Dan Leslie
2- One of Chris' kids getting a ride.
3- Chris' other kid getting ready for a ride
4- Chris' other kid's ride getting called off because steering cable broke. Greg taking off her head gear. Sad day indeed.

When Dan's steering cable broke it broke that little girls heart that she wasn't going to get a ride.
Because someone said that's all for the day, but they didn't realize they were in the land of Scott'sville, where no gyro goes unrepaired.

We got it back together and she got her flight after all.

Hey, A great BIG thanks to Scott and Mary for allowing all of us to decend onto their place for a weekend of fun flying. It was great seeing all of you again and meeting Barry K. and Stuart. It is more fun flying with other Gyros than hanging out with the FW guys. Mary indured the Wilson kids with all the energy that they have.

When we left yesterday evening the girls where crashed out before we got to the gas station. I think they had some fun.

Thanks again for a GREAT weekend!!!!

Fly Safe,
Chris
