With the 2020 Penn Yan convention postponed, Blakesburg may be the only opportunity for a get together this year. Come on out!

Giving it serious consideration. We had a great time last year.

Sure glad a few fly-ins are still happening. Last one we attended was the Brighton Open House. I remember Blakesburg from 1985 - was a great time.

For those of you going to Blakesburg I would like to suggest setting a time and place to take a group picture beforehand. Last year we did it Saturday at 1 and a lot of folks were already gone.

I hope to arrive on Friday morning, and leave Saturday afternoon. Short window, but better than nothing.

It's only a seven mile flight for me, and I decided to "pass" for today. Be down tomorrow...
