Yeah, I kept looking for you Greg. And to top it off, there was a church youth group out there playing music and meeting and they had like a chili supper and invited us to share (and some of us did) and it was great chili! So we got to fly, eat, and everything in one event. We may have to skip next weekend at wooster because of the Marshall funfly, then if the weather holds, have a fly week after next at wooster again. Maybe by then I will also be able to get some stuff fixed back up! ;-) --- Greg Clayton <clayton@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Sounds like I missed a good time, maybe next time. > > > Greg C. > > ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Bill Beavers" <bbeavers57@xxxxxxxxx> > To: <lektrik_flyers@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> > Sent: Saturday, October 07, 2006 7:45 PM > Subject: [lektrik_flyers] Re: NOTAM > > > > Sorry you couldn't make it Joe.
