48 Young Eagles flown!

Sunday's Young Eagles rally went spectacularly well thanks to pilots Roger Gordon, Jerry Kaplan, Barnett Schmidt and Joe Gugel. Joe flew his first and five other Young Eagle flights in his recently acquired Grumman Cheetah. 
Besides Bob McClosky, Larry Lorenz and Harry Parson's promotional and registration work, Bob Fenner did a terrific  job all day managing and rounding up kids for their flights.

Harry's Trivia Challenge was extremely popular.  John's niece, Amanda Golderer, graded the trivia quizzes, awarded the prizes and sold beverages and snacks for six straight hours.
Weather-wise the flying conditions were near-perfect, crowd control was never an issue. There were many extremely happy Young Eagles, siblings and parents between 9:00 and 6:00 when the gate was locked and the rest of us left.

Kudos to the volunteers!
