Wrens Fall Fly-in is September 16th thru 18th! Wrens Airport, Georgia. (65J)

Again this year Georgia and Carolina are joining forces to CHALLENGE Florida, Tennessee, and EVERYONE ELSE in the country to come out and join the fun!

The event has been growing steadily over the last several years and last year's attendance was 23 gyros and 178 people: http://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43853

This year, we have a goal of seeing at least 30 gyros and 200 people!!

Please post if you can make it and let us know if you can bring your gyro.

The CHALLENGE is ON!... again. :)

Awesome Barney. Added you to the list, as well as Phil R. for Georgia.

Is the Bensen going to be for sale this time around?

Carolina guys - watch out! Tennessee is going to have you beat real soon of you don't step-up your game.

Great to hear you are gonna' be there Wayne! Looking forward to seeing you.

Hey... you still chipping away at your gyro training since last October? Maybe we can coax your CFI to attend if they are not already planning to. :)

Ah.....the Wrens Challenge is here again......my how time flies!

I've heard a rumor that for those that show up WITHOUT their gyros.....they are going to be forced to share a room with Scott Waggoner!!!! I would highly advise you to bring your gyros.....even if it's just parts in a box.......it's better than putting up with Waggoner!!!!!!

Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!!

Well Mark, at the risk of having to share a room with Scott, I hope to arrive early Saturday w/o a machine. I'll only be able to stay for a few hours, because I have Gracie duty (dog). Looking forward to seeing you all.

You can expect Daniel from Manchester TN to be there. While joining PRA on the phone he asked when the next fly-in would be held. I sent him the information and he's coming.
Can I help market this one with you or keep it small like the last request?

Thanks John for hooking Daniel up with the info on Wrens. I've added him to the tally on the first page and look forward to meeting him. Looks like we are going to have a good showing from Tennessee again this year. And, even better now.

And YES, please advertise the heck out of Wrens as much as you can. Come one come all! It's gonna be one for the record books.
