Here's a few pictures from the Fly-In on Saturday. Thanks to Alamogordo and the USFS for the use of the launch and LZ, and to all who came to help - Wyatt, Terry, Nancy, Finis, Steve and Steve. The Tom & Cindy West Memorial Fun Fly was a fine and safe event!

It only took 6 years from Bill's original request, but I finally wrote the "BBCode" tags to embed Vimeo videos in the forum. Here's how to use both the "vimeo" and "youtube" tags in the forum:

Thanks for making that visible, Bob. I enjoyed rehashing our fly-in from back in May. It's time to prepare now for the Columbus Day Gathering in October. (October 11 through 14.)
