We are now flying in late tonight, so we can make the Thursday dinner. We are booked at the Inn at the Lakes. Dinner is at the Inn, correct?

Great dinner last night.
The expo is always fantastic for catching up with the Sport Pilot community.
Dr. Paul was missed but his presence is certainly not hard to find at the expo.
We had a group of about 13 including:

Fast Eddie & Cool Karen
Flocker
Mr & Mrs Cluemeister
Mark from Tecnam
Just about the entire team from Bristell
and a few more friends.

Great seeing everyone!

Thanks again for organizing the dinner.

Arrived at the show about 10A in a light drizzle, and it had been shut down.

Over at Lockwood. Conflicting rumors over whether the show is closed for the day or if it will reopen at around 1P.

I'll try to let you guys know.

Tecnam is open. Indoors.
They are a seperate business so open regardless of show.
Lots of cool aircraft on display.

They are located in the hangar next to the airport restaurant.
