SPORT AIRCRAFT CLUB
SEPTEMBER 2020 NEWSLETTER
Next meeting: September 10, 2020
7:30pm, Blair Field Clubhouse
A huge THANKS! to all those who helped me with
the past newsletters by sending stories and pictures! Last month was pretty good
This month I left things until the last minutes,
and now it is slim picking.
I went flying, kind of! The following is a shot
of some of the cliffs above the Dewdrop Range. But as seen from my drone...
I kind of miss flying there with the Beaver.
As seen from the trail below.
My wife loves beets, so that's about all we are
growing in the garden this year. For next year a friend suggested we grow some
grass I won't have to mow twice a week. And apparently if I consume the stuff it
might give me some good ideas for the newsletter. What do you think?
A friend sent me this word of wisdom. Was that a hint?
BLAIR FIELD, AUGUST 22.
We had a corn roast.
Dave Jones supplied the corn, Wally, Dennis and Linda Seib supplied the
work. The attendance might have been better if I had not screwed up with
the invitations, I could have sent more...
Pat (on the left) also helped by
getting the place ready, bringing a table and some chairs.
Dave Jones showing his bike to Jim Bottoms
Dennis Seib flew in with the Beaver, sideways most
of the time.
Of course that did not bother Jim Davidson in his 185.
Dean Wichmann had his trike out, waiting for the wind to
The strip was dry, very good shape.
