Jan 2nd Fly-out

Was a fantastic turn out. Seven aircraft from Newark and one from Buckeye departed for Bella’s Restaurant on the shores of Grand Lake in northwestern Ohio. Carl got some great pictures as did Cheryl Harris. With Wendy’s friend who joined us for lunch and helped transport us to the restaurant we had 20 people attend. Close to a record for planes and people on this day.

Fly-out Saturday Sept. 18th

Two planes left for Wings over Coshocton. Charlie Rhoads and wife Cathy in the Cessna 182. Rollie and Carl Oblinger, and Glen Boarders granddaughter
and grandson in the Cherokee 235. I was not able to stay for the airshow. Some people drove? Several other planes left (VTA) that day for different destinations.
It was a very busy day. Great flying weather! See you all Tuesday at our regular pilot meeting night.


Motorcycle ride-out Sept. 11th

Was well attended on a brisk morning. Four bikers left the airport at 7:30 a.m. rode to Denny’s (flying J) Rt. 70 for breakfast @ 8:00. With the others meeting there. Roy Hurt, Sam Huff, Fred Maki, Bob Bennett, Don Bodle, Gary Kurtz, Molly Kurtz, (has her own bike) Rollie Bailey,
John Sheppard and Tanya, and Larry Arnold (not a biker). We all had a great visit and breakfast. I had Fred lead the pack to the AMA open house museum in Pickerington. It was very nice and informative. We all split up there and all made it home for the “OSU” game. 🙂


Fly-out 1st Sunday September 5th

Threw the dart at the Detroit sectional, (Charlie). Hit the Lake (Erie) I flew to Mt.Vernon with two taildraggers, Sam Huff in his T-craft and Jack and Fred Maki in their Aeronca. They were not going to go to the lake. Then I and Charlie Rhoads with Bob Marriott and Carl Oblinger continued on to the lake. I called Port Clinton Unicom from the air and had transportation waiting on us upon arrival. Carl got some great pictures and oh, what a Sunday brunch buffet at Mon Ami restaurant! Outstanding! Right up there with Butler Pa. in my books. We had a great flight and had
empty seats!?!

See you cyclist Saturday morning for our ride-out.


Fly In, Young Eagle results August 28th

Good evening,

I do not have an accounting of everything yet, but we had a great turn out at our Fly In. Twenty seven pilots registered as having flown in – from all over the state and one from WV.

138 kids flew. I’m sure the two seaters had a more intimate setting while the four/six place had to spread the love. Here are the numbers:
Charlie 24
Bill 21
Ed 10
Rollie 21
Jesse 18
George 12
Michael 21
Barnard 5
Wayne 6
A big thanks to everyone who had a hand in this event from the prep to the tear down and everything in between.
