Don’t forget that this weekend is the Air Show!

The gates open tomorrow and Sunday at 10 AM and the show starts at 11:15 AM each day. You can find more information at the link above.

And here’s something that’s extremely overdue with us…

We wanted to congratulate Ms. Sherriann Tilley for winning our Trivia/Survey contest!

We really enjoyed her entry, and especially wanted to thank her for coming in to pick up on her prize on her birthday and letting us wish her a happy birthday.

And we would also like to thank everyone else who entered. There were a lot of great entries that were a pleasure to read.

Whether you’re going to the Air Show or not, and of course we would strongly encourage you to do so, we hope everyone has an extremely fun and safe time.
