Ok Mike I have a solution, the BOD and SkyFest have conflicted for the past four years, have you been to the last three meetings? Well then there you go.
Tell them you have a great story to cover or something? I know, my mother is presenting me with my 20 cert. w/ USPA and she receives her forty year (shhh, don't let her know I told everyone)

Well since I just spent my first weekend at Spaceland this past 4th of July...AND LOVED THE PLACE, I'm gonna see if my guy wants to skip his official swoopy thing and come swoop Spacelands cool little pond Tongue

I had a really great time this weekend despite it being a bit slower than norm (or so I'm told) but the people were great, the planes were flying (I was a lucky girl and got to sit next to Anomaly boys almost every loadAngelic, the facility was awesome (loved that AC packing - holy cow did I love it

It was just a great place and if I don't make it for Skyfest, I will for sure be back some time soon. Thanks to all.....ok - back to your regularly scheduled Skyvest chat.......
