OK, the Fall Midwest Fly-in @ Sikeston (SIK) has come and gone. Fun and a lot of food was had by all.
This was probably the smallest COPA fly-in, (at least since the pre-COPA NJ shore fly in 2001). but we prefer “Close Knit” or “Friendly.” Five planes and 12 people showed up for lunch at Lambert’s. Bernard B. deserves a special compasison award for giving Andy Bresler after a lift to the event after a worn brake left him temporarily planeless.
Planes came from Chicago, Wisconsin, two from Missouri and Louisville, KY. The folks at Lambert’s showered us with their usual great service, bombarded us with “throwed rolls” and showed us the top secret prototype of the latest from Cirrus’s skunk works, the SR 62! (More on that later.)
Andy, thanks for your help in setting this up, and to all who attended, thanks for coming - it was very good to meet all of you.
Pics from the event are in the attachment:
P.S.: Mike - we wanted to take a roll home in a doggy bag to send to you, but we figured it just wouldn’t make it to LV warm. [:(]
