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!"Well, nothing bad can happen now."

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!!!!
