The 11th annual Wally’s Fly-In may have been a
soggy one, but the spirits of both flyers and spectators were not
For the 11th time, Buck
expertly coordinated a beautiful show. From the preparation, which takes a
good week just at the field, to the tear down of all the equipment Sunday
evening, Buck was there. Wally’s would like to take this opportunity to
thank everyone who assisted Buck in this event. Without you, such a show
could not be successful. A special
thanks to Boy Scout Troop 107 for once again preparing and
serving the “free” food for all who was at the show. One can not forget to
thank our sponsors, without them this show could not go on.
For this two (2) day event, seventy-six (76) flyers
registered from eight (8) different states (Maryland, Ohio, Virginia,
Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, New York, and West Virginia).
were several prizes awarded from ready to fly remote controlled aircraft,
a 50/50 drawing, to numerous door prizes throughout the event. Wally’s
Squadron hopes everyone went home happy.
Flying was almost continuous from daybreak to after dark,
with only a few departures from controlled flight. The trailers and setups
this year once again proved this is a serious sport and the people who
participate are dedicated to it.
Miles Reed (77 years old) this year honored Wally’s Squadron with
his presents. If anyone has seen this gentlemen fly and realize the talent
required to make an aircraft do what he make can it do. Everyone would be a spell bound
as many of the pilots were that seen him fly.
We at Wally’s Squadron would like to thank everyone who
assisted in any way to put this years event on, all flyers, donators,
spectators, and anyone we may have missed. Without you, this would not be
a yearly event.
See you at the 12th annual fly-in. Good luck Andy; you have
some big shoes to fill.
