    Who is going to this years Aviation Summit?

    I am planning on being there Sat. I might go earlier.

    Looks like Bonanza Guys are having their International Conf in conjunction. That is a good idea, too bad Comanche, Cessna Cardinals and other flyers did not do the same thing...

    Be there or be Square.

    I think this got cancelled, no? Could be wrong, but I think the new AOPA president ax'd it. Don't want to start rumors though...anyone know?

    I almost Missed it. I arrived 3pm Sat. I got in free and rushed through the exhibit hall in about 1 1/2 hrs. They closed at 4pm for tear down but they did not ask anyone to leave. I had plenty of guys giving me two or three pens, hats, Tshirts, model airplanes, stickers as they took down their sites.

    I met up with Tango Wiskey and Grant P and their better halves at Hard Eights BBQ. Sorry we missed Mike Abby88 I guess he was there a bit before us. We were to meet at 6pm but we stayed in line 20 minutes to get in and then we did not see him. Sorry Mike. I only found these guys because we pm cell phones before I left Wichita.

    It was a terrific weekend. I took my 5 grand daughter with me and all the sales reps were trowing free stuff at us. :) not planned but I will remember that in the future.

    Sad to think its the last AOPA Summit.

    Just to clarify, it was his 5 year old grand daughter, not his 5 grand daughters! :yikes:
