Its Saturday morning here in the Winter Water Wonderland of Michigan! It's 26 degrees and snow is forecast for the next 3 - 4 days. The best part of Winter is that Spring is coming!
The second best thing to do during "Non-Flying Season" is to get together with your flying friends and have a big dinner, call it something cool like .....the 2011 Take Off Dinner, drive half way across the State(1), eat a huge dinner, talk flying all night, drive all the way back to Hastings and then fall in bed around 1AM in the morning. Can you think of a better way to get recharged for the "Flying Season"? I can't think of a better use of "Non-Flying Season" time!!!
Well this is exactly what a group of us are doing tonight!!! The entourage is scheduled to leave our house at 2:15PM. Notice I said 2:15PM EST, not 2:16PM EST. Can you tell that I am looking forward to seeing my flying buds....several of this bunch fly HoneyBee's which makes it even better!
My point in writing this morning is to encourage you to get involved in a local flying club. One that not only builds aircraft (better yet Gyroplanes!) and is social. When making this type of decision, one of the questions you need to ask the President of the club is "where is the coffee pot and did you bring the Apple Pie with you"? If the answer is "the pot is hot and right over there and no I brought fresh donuts this morning..." Brotha, you have just arrived at my kind of club! More than than likely, you are going to fit right in! Bay Area Rotorcraft & Ultralight Club(2) is THAT kind of club. If you are in
, come and join our club! We are PRA Chapter #32 and ASC Chapter #82 and you will love it! Michigan
If you can't come and join us, please find a club near you and get involved, build something, drink coffee, eat donuts and exercise...you are in for a great time. You will make friends for life; flying is always best when shared with your friends....especially when "Flying Season" finally arrives!
'Til next time,
See: Michigan State University!!!; Recently MSU just gave (threw) a bone to U of M; We Stater's may mourn for a couple of days, but believe me brotha, WE will be cheering them all the way to the Final Four AGAIN....
