I had a great day at the event today, thank you to everyone who was so generous with your time and knowledge.

Some very nice flying... Except those two guys on the buddy box today. I feel a bit of a jam tart for wimping out on the experience.

Re: Princeton Spring Dates Set June 3-5th, 2011

Oh, thats right, u guys didn't make the playoffs either.
maybe so, perhaps you recall who won the last two times those teams met?? (hint: It wasn't the Canucks...)

Yeah, bad decision, I guess...the weather is downright crappy here.....

A few short comments before crashing in bed,

My favorite part, nothing to do with jets. Wish we'd gotten a picture of all the people crammed into Paul's hotel room like sardines to watch the canucks game. Who woulda thought a tiny town like Princeton would fill the local pub, Dairy Queen, and any other building with a TV that could receive CBC...

Next, the thank you's:
- Big thank to to Bart Ramsay once again, and everyone that helped for the tireless work in the logistics in running a great jet rally.

- Rib master Kevin and all the rest who supplied food for the pot luck. Had I not been in the middle of a series of dental surgeries (make sure you wear a mouth guard if you play hockey without a full shield...) I would have gorged myself on ribs and the rest of the leftovers.

- Thanks you to Dean W, lunch on Saturday for all the pilots was OK, but the ice cream during the 2nd intermission was great...

- Thank to to all the pilots that chose to pre-register for the MAAC TOC (Turbine Operator's Certificate) program, the Jet Committee's recently proposed replacement for the LoP document (needed for MAAC members wanting to fly in AMA territory). More to come on this for everyone very soon, but for those reading this thread from the East I'm working to make the same pre-registration available next week at Wingham. I don't want to risk hijacking the thread, so please contact me or your local Jet Committee member for questions.

- On that same topic, thank you to those same pilots for the positive and constructive comments / questions. I think the dry run went very well and look forward to building momentum across the rest of the country in the very near future. Feels good to be back in business again...

- Thank you to Environment Canada for being ridiculously incorrect in their long term forecast a week in advance. (Do my taxes pay for this?) The weather was awesome every day.

- Thanks to the usual contingent of American friends joining us. Think I got a few photos of a very concerned looking Bob Brusa, while his wife Carol was being buddy boxed on Dean W's reaction. Bob, I know you're reading this. When you 1st met up with us several years back, you were just getting into jets and also flying a reaction 54. Out of respect for Bob as a good friend I'll plead my 5th amendment rights and hold back the comment I just was about to make about which 'Brusa' can handle an R-54 better...

That's it for now; I'm far too heat stroked, sun burnt, and tired.

Re: Princeton Spring Dates Set June 3-5th, 2011

Excellent time but that heavy sun caught me off guard. Got a bit sick when I got home from the bright rays but no way I can complain about that. Great event as usual.
