You just gotta drive a bit, my friend!
180GO! has a member in Milwaukee and a member in Dayton. According to Google, that's 380 miles, or about the length of England.
Or if you want to hop in a plane or sail a boat over, you can fly with us anytime.

Sorry Bazzer old boy no fighting bandit's at ten to seven as that's the time for tea and biscuit's, and following Ministry of Defence spending cutbacks leading to the rumoured imminent demise of the Red Arrows we had put in a quote to the MOD to take over their display role for the RAF, our price of free tea and cake was being looked on favourably until an investigation revealed a problem, the copious amount's of tea was ok but when they discovered how much cake the Air Chief Marshal was liable to consume our quote was thrown out !! Bit of a shame as we were looking forward to spending the winter at Akrotiri in Cyprus while we practised, so we will have to resort back to annoying the public at Holland Haven ( where all kite fliers are welcome ) they are becoming quite used to being buzzed by the Rev Arrows the embrionic display team of the Haven Flyers, toodle pip, chok's away and smoke on.

If cake is your problem move away from the Battenburg.
I would try Toasted Tea Cakes.
If they become resilient to that bombardment, try crumpets.
If that fails!
Then theres nothing for it!
Hit them low and hard!
With Scones and clotted cream. (Be careful on the Jam choice...raspberry can offend!)
