I have a few flyers already commited to to this somewhere in Conn. Sherri Pigeon is coming up from FLA and so her and her two sons will be there so we have 3 already, lets nail down a spot and do this!

Hi all,
Looks like we have some New England weather :confused!: Unless the roads are unpassable, I WILL BE THERE by noon time! Brad Weiner said he is bringing a heater! SO Check the post in the morning and see you out there! :P

Hey John!

I wouldn't say it was bad on Saturday, but at times we would have had to tie you down. Scott, Darren and Brad almost got blown away a couple of times. As for me, gravity is on my side. :kid_smartass:

The only thing we didn't get was a rainbow!

Is it just me or was Scott totally molesting my loud colored kite a bit much LMAO :kid_smartass:

Great day for the few of us that actually braved the elements.

We have to do this soon at the fort with Art, Beth, Sue, Steve, Doug, Scott, Ron, Myself and My 2 Boys and a few others that frequent my neck of the woods on a reg basis thats one hell of a group of regulars.
