A dream come true. A proud moment. A trip
Excitement at the auction, fun on the field, we even got to
eat at the Bar-B-Q! Yep, the week just keeps getting better and better.
This set of photo's shows some pictures from the well
attended NARAM auction and also the 500th flight of my Sprint'73. Now I will
forewarn you that I covered this fairly extensively here in this photo album. It is
also important to understand that the 500th flight of the Sprint'73 was a "Jim
Flis" event and NOT a FlisKits event. This was a personal accomplishment of
mine that I have been planning for years. I was thrilled to have completed it and
was proud as punch to be able to involve both Vern and Gleda Estes in this event. I
can not envision ever doing something like this again and am not sure if I will even have
the 30+ years it would take to accomplish.
We also have some coverage of the Manufactures forum in here
as well as some photo's of the delapitated nature of our host hotel.
