‘Wings and Wheels’  is off to a great start.  We had 60 classic cars the first week and 75 the second with half dozen planes each time.  Nancy’s wood-fired ‘Pie in the Sky’ is proving to be a popular addition to each evening’s activities.  ‘T2’ hangar tenants are finding that opening their doors is fun for visitors and rewarding for them.  This community outreach activity is proving to be a winner for everyone participating!  Stop by any Thursday after 5pm.

Our Full Moon Fly Out JULY 20th  – 24th is great for introducing folks to GA.  Consider inviting a fireman, policeman, selectman, reporter, state rep, or senator to go with you.  Spread the word about the benefits of GA while having a good time.  Call OPS for our destination.  Wheels up at 5:30.
