However, be advised that small informal bands of renegade Texans, professing to be aviators, have occurred in this area, almost without warning, so stay vigiliant. A few are even said to be armed with extensive RV knowledge but their whereabouts are unknown at this time.

Did not realize that the registration had to be mailed in with a check this time around . Will be in the mail today, looking forward to the event.

10 day weather outlook for LOE 2014 shows ONLY a 10% chance of rain for October 3-5, 2014. Hope we have a great turnout.

HEADS UP !!!!

For everyone who HAS NOT registered for LOE 2014 the Banquet Caterer has a deadline of Thursday October 2, at 2:00 pm to turn in the numbers for the Saturday Night Banquet meal. If you have not sent in your check and registration you might not get to eat at the Saturday night banquet.

You might contact spkrazer AT sbcglobel DOT net and see what you can do to arrange for payment and registration.

For those flying in on Saturday, Falcon Flight is planning to do a 9-ship formation flight at 1:30pm Saturday.

Hope to see all my old friends and some new ones.

IF I can get there! BBA cold front supposed to be inbetween me and LOE tonight and all tomorrow

Edit
*****Decided to start journey early (Thursday) in the hopes of getting through the weather before it consolidated into a single front. It was a struggle. ADS-B rocks. Made it to Texarkana TXK before running into a wall. Should pass over us tonight and be a short hop to ABI in the morning (Fri). *******

Chris

I'll check with the 'chief cook' and get back to you a little later. Just a guess...I'd say at least until 10:00,but I'll let you know for sure.

Ok,... just got the word from the chief:

Breakfast until 10:00 or 10:30ish. Could possibly have some breakfast burritos made from the left-overs afterward.
