Before we close the book on this year’s Lady Taildraggers & Friends Fly-in there’s one last thank you that is long overdue. Two people from Tennessee worked very hard for a very long time to make sure the fly-in was the best it could be. Chuck Avon volunteered and put in so much time early on that he soon was “awarded” the thankless title of “Fly-in Coordinator”. He solicited most of the door prizes, laid out the Poker Run and arranged that great lunch stop. He found us “The Cowboy Poet”, drove the bus and worked non-stop the week of the fly-in. Shannon Gallagher started out as computer support and helped out in many ways for months. She also worked the week of the fly-in, manned the registration desk, passed out door prizes and donated her artwork to benefit “Operation Homefront”. Together they were a powerful team who accomplished much. Many thanks to you both, Chuck & Shannon.
And on another note, several wonderful articles have been written about this year’s Fly-in. Â Thank you to AircraftOwner Online writer Nancy Warren for the wonderful article that just came out about our Fly-in. Check out the link.
Deb McFarland wrote a totally amazing article about our Fly-in for General Aviation News, particularly surprising since as hard as she tried, she just couldn’t get to it!
Â And thank you to Jill Tallman for her cool post about our Fly-in in AOPAPilot Blog.
Besides the fact that it’s just cool to get so much publicity about our Fly-in, it’s particularly special when all the articles are written by women …. women pilots!!
