    Ok folks the news you have been waiting for!!!
    The 2nd Annual Wings Field Fly B Q (Fly In) has been set for Saturday May 20, 2006 at Wings Field KLOM. (Rain date Sunday May 21) For those of you that haven't been here Wings is just northeast of Philly. I'm figuring around an 11:00 - Noon start. Just like last year we will have some awesome BBQ, and Fixins ( Toby I have the Potato salad from last year for ya) Beverages, Comraderie and Plenty of Airplane talk.

    In addition we will look to have a few contests this year including spot landing, spot parking and taxiing contests. We may even have some B-Day cake as this year the Fly B Q is on EdFred's Birthday.

    Eventually as you all respond I will need the number of Aircraft and how many in each plane. Once we get some firm numbers I'll know how much shopping I have to do and can set a price per person. At Ron's suggestion I will have extra Fire Extinguishers on hand. :rolleyes:

    Look forward to seeing everyone there!!!!

    Oh, Adam. A serious dilemma! Fly in, can't have a brew. Drive in, can have a brew, which serious BBQ deserves. Ya really gonna do the holy grail of BBQ, the brisket?

    Well Bob, that is indeed a difficult decision. So to make it easy for ya here are some options:

    1) Fly up with your partner in the R22 or Archer have a beer and let him fly back ( Wasn't gonna have beer as it is a "FLY IN" but I'd bring a few bottles if ya aren't flyin back)

    2) Fly up and Fly back, meet me another day for some great local BBQ and a beer or few on me

    3) Some folks have expressed interest in flying in from quite a distance and if so may stay overnight. If so join us for a few brewskis in the evening when ya don't have to fly back.

    As for the brisket well, I'd like to. I hope to get Andrew Stanley to come down from Mass and help me BBQ. (Andrew if you read this please PM me.) For sure we will have the grill going for Burgers and dogs

    If Andrew does come down and help me Sloooooooow cook some BBQ we will do it the night before and ya know ya can't BBQ without bending the elbow a few times with some frostys, you could certainly help out then:yes:

    One plane, three people. Yes, it's a 5 minute flight no matter where I rent from, but I'm bound and determined to actually fly to a fly in sooner or later LOL

    Let me know if you need any help picking stuff up, set up, etc.

    Add one plane and 2.33 people (My daughter at 3 counts for 1/3 when it comes to food planning).

    Thanks to Toby for telling me about this.

    Has anyone seen this guys website? http://www.doeblitz.net/ghg/

    It's an interesting site that talks about a BBQ lighting contest put on by the engineering department at Purdue university. The contest was to see who could get a grill ready for cooking in the shortest amount of time. This guy, George Goble, used 60 pounds of charcoal in which he put a lit cigarette as an ignition source then he poured 3 gallons of liquid oxygen onto the grill. In 3 seconds it burned off 2/3 of the charcoal along with any paint that may have been on the undustrial strength iron grill and they had coals ready for cooking. They also tried the same experiment using a cheap Costco grill that was vaporized in the process.

    The local fire department, once they found out about the event, banned them from ever trying something like this again.

    You have to see his web page. :rofl::rofl::rofl::goofy::goofy::goofy:

    Bah - I wish I could do this. I love BBQ, I love flying, and I love flying long distances. But I just don't think I can make a 15 hour flight for BBQ this year, Adam.

    Some day I'll do this and one of those big pancake breakfasts up there.

    If you'll be coming from JYO or something, I'll be in 163GT - we could have an army formation flight (defined as two aircraft in the same direction on the same day).

    I'll be departing FDK for the trip.

    For those unable to open the Word document containing the list of attendees I have copied it to the post see below. Also since some often use " Screen Names" Its tough to figure out who you really are. If you wouldn't mind please post you real name including your last name and the name of your guest or flying partner so we can acutally figure out who is coming. If you are hesitant to post your name please just send me a PM. But well know who ya are at the fly in anyway.
