    Anyone have one of those spreadsheets handy as a template with tail number, arrival date, bringing food for Saturday night, etc? Me, N405FA, Friday, homebrew beer (doppelbok, but also taking a request).

    I might try to be there. I have to be back in Reno by the 11th so we’ll see. I am in Texas now heading to New England.

    Cool. If I make use of anyone's floor space, closet space, couch space, I will pay my pro-rata share of whatever is needed.

    Pretty sure that pic was pre-Fly Baby. Pretty sure the pic is from 2008. I flew in the dearly departed N271G in the pic. I can see @bbchien's Seneca farther down the row. I think this was also the year that the other side of the runway was packed solid quite a ways down as well, best turnout we ever had at Gaston's. The maroon and white Cherokee on the close side of N271G I think might be Kevin's - I can't remember his handle here, but I think Dani rode up with him, and there was an attempt to turn it into a seaplane...

    It was definitely not 2009 - I looked back through my pics, and that was the year of the bridesmaids, so I had N8483F down there that year, not N271G. I also had 83F in 2007. There weren't nearly that many planes there in 2006, even fewer in 2005. In 2010, I took a Citabria. So yeah, that has to be 2008.

    The year of the Fly Baby was the year that Spike and I flew in with Dave S. and his King Air. And Kimberly was along to help aerate the runway in her spike heels and provide a particular duck the best view of the weekend when she took a ride in @Greg Bockelman's Cessna 195.

    I'll definitely try to make it down for at least a "day visit" on saturday. May come prepared to spend the nigh...in case someone has space for me to crash.
