This is just my raw video. I will try to do a little post on it and replace it when done.

A nice tribute.

I arrived Sat around 1000. Stopped to say hi and have a nice lunch. Great airplanes to see, and met alot of VAF members. Always a good time.

Stiff winds, and lite to moderate turbulence near and over the mountains when I left LOE and flew over to Larmie to visit the new grand baby.

The turnout was light because of the weather but we still served about 100 dinner at the banquet, including about 20 Kamtz family members.

Even with weather problems for the third year in a row we still raised $6,100.00 in raffle sale tickets and cash donations. In addition Ann Daves convinced the liquor store where we bought beer and wine for the Friday and Saturday social (paid for by Aircraft Engines) to make a donation of a bottle of wine. A 5 liter glass bottle of imported wine from Chile. Ann aka "Trouble" also said it WAS NOT going to be a raffle prize but she was going to auction it off after the raffle. It went for $315.00 dollars (pooled by friends of the Kamtz's) and then they gave it to Russ & Carol's daughter Sarah.

In addition to the beer and wine from Americas Aircraft Engines the Grimms mini brewery donated 12 gallons of the brew and a local brought some home brew pumpkin beer. We ran out of beer at dinner and Joe Baldwin made a run to the liquor store and bought more.

Clint from Vetterman Exhaust brought 2 exhausts down, one for the raffle and another to deliver to a customer who was coming to LOE. The customer won the Raffle Exhaust and Clint had to take the one for sale back home. Go figure the chance of that happening.

I will try and get pictures posted later this week.

Fun was had by all that attended. While the aircraft turnout was light the folks who drove in (myself included) filled up all the tables and ate all the food. We drank all the beer too! Thank you Grimms Brewery for the beer.

I probably got on peoples nerves while trying to push the raffle tickets. I must have asked everyone 10 times or more to buy tickets. I'm not Tanya Card when it comes to selling tickets but I did my best. Thank you all who made the raffle a success.

I think the highlight of my evening was auctioning off the bottle of wine. That was great fun and I thank everyone who participated.

I managed to win a couple of prizes in the drawing and traded them for some pretty snazzy tie-down ropes.

We can't wait till next year.

Very fickle weather in the USA this year.

Today at Fort Collins-Loveland is the type of day last Friday should have been. Beautiful fall weather and great for flying, probably the first day it has really felt like fall.

But thanks to everyone who came and participated AND thanks to the Rocky Mountain Renegades for the missing man formation in not the best of conditions.

Agreed, the weather gods did not cooperate for my first LOE...and in a little bit of cruel irony, sunday was flat out gorgeous. We missed it by one day! Even with the light turnout, Sheryl and I had a great time...met some nice people, donated some money, won something I didn't need in the raffle and then did some horse trading to get what I really wanted...$500 off a paint job at GLO. So it was a good night indeed! The generosity during the evening was nice to be part of, especially the wine auction, which was a hoot. Nice job Mr. Zilik!

Great pics Ray! Leadville is a great flight this time of year. Seems like there might be a VAF wallpaper shot in there somewhere.
