I believe we had a good turn-out of 170 Friends and Visitors and ate excellent BBQ at Opies, then visited Les Partridge's hangar and his ‘48 170 project. (Les is contributing articles regarding his restoration and modification of the fuel system from 170 to 170-A status.) I know Richard and others have pics I hope they’ll post.

Drive-Ins included Les Partridge, Shiela and Wendell Wyborny (N1929C), and Tracy Bratton (Jamie and my son).

Here are a few photos from the flight-line.
(Missing close-up photo of Chuck and Anna Miller in N5713C) also missing a photo of N2902D, Charlie and Beverly Ross. (Dang! Don’t know how I missed that one!)
