Default Princeton Convention

We don't have many RVs here in North East. Couple hundred maybe but 90% of them are in the shadow and off VAF radar. Last weekend a Band of Brothers from the North showed up at my airport for support and motivation.


Squadron Commander.







Distinguished Balloonist and Navy Rep







Chief Stirrer also known in narrow circles as Meat Servo.








The day was good we had Mini Cooper for 7 persons and local diner was only mile away.

It was strictly male company. Lies and jokes were plenty. I wish my hangar partner and cousin were present. Airport Manager came and asked if we want to use lounge on top of FBO.








Saw some cool stuff. I like this aileron stop Dan made.







A safety briefing. Good job

Vlad, I think it is safe to say that I speak for us all when I say we had a GREAT TIME!

Great to see you again and check out your home turf!

We will make it happen again many times in the future!

See you again soon!

Thanks for paying for lunch too! You didn't have to do that!

Default Great time!

Vlad,
Thanks for having us, the Yankee and I enjoyed ourselves.

Will post pics soon. Thanks for the write up and invite. Glad Tony wasn't there, it was much easier to talk about him without him there to defend himself!!!!

Al if your reading this, you should be bucking rivets!!!

Dan
