    Man, Gaston’s is seeming like such a sedate crowd. Must be something in this SE water.

    That boat was faulty...I swear...wasn't the captain's fault. Watch out for those rogue waves!

    oh, and don't forget to ask for the PoA discount and sign up on the signup xls (ravioli posted the link somewhere in this thread....)

    Cool! It will be good to see you and Ole EA again. Hope she’s treating you well. I saw you parked at Oshkosh.

    After seeing the AOPA video on the Canards I think Bryan should invite them, APPS that is, to our fly in. After all he has rock star status with the FAA now.

    Which is expected when your airplane suffers from multiple personality disorder.

    If you show up last minute, and you're not sure where and who everybody is, just ask the front desk to plot the location of guest complaints on a map, draw lines that connect the complaint locations. We'll be at the intersection of the lines.

    Pretty cool of them to do that.

    Shame to act the way we're going to after all that hospitality ;)

    I tried to warn her a little bit but also asked her to charge ravioli double so who knows.

    That worked! Talked to a super nice lady and we are in the same area as everyone else AND get the discount.

    POAers have been gathering at Gaston's for many moons, and I ain't heard nuttin' about no discount there. In fact, they're happy to rape you a bit on the cancellation policy. Very cool of Rough River to hook us up like that.

    Yeah, but it is potentially a big hardship for the hotel if they allow last minute cancellations for the weather. They could get socked in and then see 3/4 or more of their reservations for the weekend cancel with no way to make up for it.

    Then maybe they shouldn't have a place with an airstrip and advertise to pilots as a great place to fly into.

    The turn to base for RWY 20 is over a rocky outcropping. Some say it requires a forward slip because you'll be high on final.
