The weather gods do not like to be trifled with. We ran Saturday's Young Eagles rally on the tail end of a stretch of excellent weather, with low clouds looming nearby, but never moving in completely. We were able to fly all 40 kids who showed up, along with a couple of parents. The word appears to be getting out - compared to past years, attendance is growing. We're also seeing young people developing a serious interest in flying - some of our Young Eagles are already taking lessons, or thinking seriously about doing so. A special thanks to the pilots who spent extra time with them. Thanks to our busy pilots, and to our steadfast ground crew: Dominik Airey, Greg and Pete Alberti, Sue Benua, and Mark Saklad.
