We have a record! Not for distance, Glacier Girl has that record to date. But if the # 402 and guests of keep their attendance to the fly-outs I hope we break that one. Saturday we had 9 aircraft and 25 people! 25 IS a record by the way.
We departed (VTA) at 9. One twin aircraft departed Buckeye about the same time and we arrived at Grimes Field about 9:30 – 10:00. We ate and walked to the newly remodeled museum. I personally have been to larger museums but i was impressed with what they have over there at Urbana. If you missed the fly-out I recommend any member or non-member to take the time to visit. Real nice people to give us the tour and answer questions we had.
Thanks to all the pilots for filling the seats in their planes so many can enjoy and experience the world of Aviation!

Two aircraft, 8 people departed (VTA). A Cessna 182 and Cherokee “235” for Richard Downing Airport (I40) at 10:30 a.m. for brunch. I secured transportation down to Roscoe Village to eat at the Warehouse Restaurant. The food was delicious and the company was even better. Charlie Rhoads and his wife Cathy, guest Joe Furbee and fiance’ Chris. Rollie, Bob Marriot, Carl Oblinger, and Bob Bennet. Carl has some nice pics!
The award (purple heart) was awarded to “Flying Officer” Kenneth Rauch for injuries recieved in the line of duty while making a final landing of his R.C.A.F. (Rauch Composite Air Force) homebuilt RV-3B at Rauch field in the fall of 2010.
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.
