Yup,

I will be there most of the weekend.

I helped them put it together with the FBO.

If anyone is coming or simply visiting, let me know.

Dave, were you planning on stopping by?

I had a feeling you'd had a hand in that CJ, way to go !

Yes, I'd love to fly in and hang out for a bit.
I'm pretty sure I can drop in on Sunday, or Saturday afternoon.

It will be at Alpha One. I am thinking the big red hangar.

Also, the circus is going to be at the airport tonight and tomorrow night. They station the clown cars and the high wire girls right in front of my door. I will have the grill going if anyone wants to stop by.

It is more fun to watch from behind the scenes!

Dave, swing by!

Sorry CJ, I'm still coaching baseball teams right now, but I should be free from that by Sunday the 22nd. I'll plan on the workshop visit though.

When I first saw the topic line, I thought I was in for a treat, then realised it was Plymouth USA, not England :-))

In addition - you are so lucky over there, this side of the 'pond' we no longer have a Plymouth (EGHD) Airport, which closed last year due (so they say) it could not support modern commercial operations (runway too short for jet commercials - turbo-prop -8s being the biggest flown there) - the flying club and training organisation have moved to Newquay (EGHQ) which is far from a high population area - I fly out of Exeter (EGTE) which luckily has a future

Thank you John! I very well may take you up on that!

Here is a picture of the newbies sucking up the kool-aid and working on their Van's practice kits.

Every one there was interested in building an RV! What a surprise!

I brought them over to my hangar to see Billy's six and MachineMan Rich was kind enough to stop by with his seven.

I think we might have some new local builders!!!
