    French Lick is having a shindig Saturday.
    Supposed to be a good event. Good food, etc... and some top notch chainsaw artists from all over.
    I believe there is an auction afterwards.
    Also golf courses and a casino close by if you fancy.

    That's interesting. I was kind of looking for somewhere to fly this weekend too.

    I’m around all day. If you fly up to I19, I can haul to the Museum. About a 20 minute drive.

    C U @ Sporty’s. I’ll be there around 1100.

    Cheers

    Are you going to fly down to Sporty’s or drive? If you want, I could stop by I19 on my way and pick you up, but I do fly a low wing!

    Bummer. We had that at our house last weekend; we'll miss you.

    I'm going to drive to the airport tonight to plug my block heater into the switcheon. It's friggin cold out all of a sudden.

    Rain in Dayton now and forecast as well till after 1200. Usually a pessimistic forecaster at WPAFB but I have to be in Springfield around 1400.

    I’m scrubbing on the odd chance they’re right

    I'm going today even if I'm the only one there, as my plane goes in for annual and some avionics Monday.

    If you all want to try again next weekend as well, let me know and I'll be happy to update the thread.

    If next weekend, I would be ok for Sunday.

    A 76 yr old Ercoupe canopy isn’t the best in the rain:D

    I’m starting to wonder if the Ercoupe is a figment of someone’s imagination? Just saying… :rolleyes:
