    What's the landing fee for the corporate helicopter?

    As I told EQ already, my plans changed rather abruptly and I will not be able to attend. Take plenty of pics.

Size:  84.1 KBSUCCESS ! Everything went well I say . Thanks to DAND78 for bringing his trailer load of goodies and his wife Joann for allowing him to come and play. They even took a break from welding to do the cooking ! I'm not sure if he's a better cook or welder. Thanks to for Gamble for bringing his goodies , those funny color machines are cute. VWGUY 3 and wife Linda for their free goodies and salad . MJD took time out from his shop to join us and brought goodies too. EQ brought the chicken , I hate pulling feathers off before eating.
    It was enjoyable to have a variety of machines to use. Dan allowed all of us to test drive his SA200 for FREE too. Great running machine . Gambles rainbow colored ones were cute and we did test them. We used a variety of 6010 rods from different manufactures . It was interesting to find out the little inverted preferred the RED Lincoln rod over the Hobart and 5P plus.
    Ok , now some pictures.
