Fog disappeared mid morning, revealing a low scattered layer. A stable atmosphere didn't result in that great a day for soaring, but we were visited by several new faces and a familiar face from the past. Tim Devine, EAA Chapter 602 member, stopped by to observe the operation. Dusty Grant and his father, Dan, came down from Lake Placid, took introductory rides and left the airport with "perma-grins". Mark Hyland also took an introductory ride. Regina Doi took an introductory flight and seems very excited about the sport. After 18 years, Donna was finally able to convince her sister, Gail, to take a flight, which she seemed to thoroughly enjoy. Roy Busse stopped by and after 3 flights with Jim Morzillo is once again current. Many stayed and enjoyed a cold beverage after the long and enjoyable day.

July 17 and 18: many of "the regulars" were away, but those of us who were around enjoyed two consecutive weekend days without rain. Bradley was able to squeeze an instructional flight into his base manager duties on Sunday -- his progress this season is impressive.
