Young Eagles Rally

August 12, 2017

Wow...sometimes miracles do happen. Even Friday night, the weather forecast for Saturday was terrible - showers or thunderstorms, and a morning temperature / dew point spread of only 4 degrees and not much better throughout the day. The perfect makings for a hopelessly low overcast. I sent out a gloomy email all but canceling the rally. And then we woke up to clearing skies Saturday morning. Either people saw my email in the morning, or they believed their eyes rather than my Friday evening email. We ended up with 7 pilots flying 29 kids plus 6 parents under mostly sunny skies - a solid turnout. Thanks again to our pilots and the folks who helped me on the ground - Geoff Lull and Alec Liberman, and also the Minute Man Ops staff who helped keep the traffic moving.
