Is it feeling a little CHILI outside? It should! It’s time for our annual honkin’, screamin’ membership chili cookoff! Winner gets bragging rights for the next twelve months. As in previous years, bribery in the form of (name your favorite beer) are not condoned and are not guaranteed to sway the vote. But just in case, in addition to win, place and show, we give you the People’s Choice award. That’s where you, the incorruptible, tell the judges what you REALLY think. It’s a shouting contest so raise your hands and your voices and tell the world who the best chili cook is, bar none.
We had so much fun at the July Fly-in, we're going to do it again! The turn-out for July's event was spectacular. We saw 27 different aircraft. Everyone enjoyed all-you-could-eat pancakes and bottomless cups of coffee. There was orange juice and sausage on offer, and something we hadn't done before, a fruit medley to top it off. In a word, it was incredible. All this for $5.00. This seems like a winning formula, so we'll do all that again.
There was a kind of magic in the air, Saturday, July 14th. Pancakes flipped, the coffee and orange juice flowed, sausages leapt off the griddle with glee, and 72 patrons enjoyed the biggest pancake breakfast fly-in that we’ve had in recent memory. At one point there were up to 27 aircraft lining the runway. We were awestruck. The Facility Team put forth an incredible effort to deliver this simple, yet satisfying meal. The Memorial Mike Logan Grinnin’ Griddle performed like a seasoned champ, and schooled a crew of new recruits on how to operate this amazing behemoth.
