I've been (mostly) there for nearly a decade. Looking forward to it again this year. I get a chance to see some friends I don't see often, learn some things, and do some flying. What's not to like!

Been several years since I have been able to go and last few times it was super packed out with pilots.....rain or shine. I can only hope it is still this way. How has it been for the last few years? Looking forward to the event.

the past 2 years the weather hasn't been the best. however, it was just bad luck, as for the first 21 years the weather was fine. keep fingers crossed that this year will be perfect!!!!

glad to hear you are coming! cant wait to see you!
