Landing at Whiteplains

Pilots Meeting 3-1-2010


Disaster Action Plan Presentation.

Change of Speakers: Todd can not make it, so we will have a different speaker.

A well known "mystery" guest will give some interesting details about local pilot's and their "learning" experiences. Come see if you are one of those "presented."

We may have a $100,000 door prize - or not - you must be present to win - depends on whether I hit the lottery today.

Be there or be square.

thank you,

Terry Yon

(This will be a Monday night)

Flight of five to the Florida Keys

Last week several of us flew down to the Florida Keys in a flight of five.  Below is a short slide show.  Thanks to Bill Como and John Gardner for letting me tag along with them.  We all had a nice time, just wish the weather was a tad warmer. Trip dates 2-18 to 2-21-2010.

Windy Road Cleanup

A small but MIGHTY crew did the roadside cleanup on Saturday, February 20th. After a lovely breakfast at Fastnaughts, we all loaded into Jim Causey'struck and hit the road. Nine of us collected 16 bags of trash along Windy Road and Golden Jubilee. Thanks to Diane for breakfast and to Jim for being our mission commander.

Short Flight over Whiteplains

Michael Benton was the only brave fellow that would go up with me to do a short photo hop over Whiteplains.  Come and join us. The weather is great, and the runway is plowed.  Thanks to Dennis Perry.

White Wonderland at Whiteplains Plantation

We went from this last night to this this morning.  I checked my GPS and it still says that we are in South Carolina, but when I look out the window I wonder if that could be.  This stuff should be up north.
