        Craig...Chicken Ranch

        Craig,
        You better not let Rachel hear you say that,she won't take kindly to people thinking the factory is a Chicken Ranch,no matter what they nicknamed the town.

          We're planning on bringing three to five BC12-D's down for the fly in and are eagerly awaiting to hear what kind of schedule will be set up. Obviously a tour of the factory and we're hoping for some type of camping availability on the airport grounds. Food and other physiological necessities would be good too! Forums?

          Looking forward to it.

            We're going to try to get down there with the BC-65. We are needing to know details...
            1) which airport.
            2) is the factory at the airport?
            3) is there a schedule?

                  C.G. Taylor Documentary

                  Tcrafters...

                  I plan to be at the Taylorcraft Factory Fly-in. Production activities are continuing on the documentary. I'm still looking for someone to assist with writing grants. If you are out there and can assist with writing grants, please let me know. If anyone is flying their craft from the Indiana area to La Grange and has available space, I would like to hitch a ride. Let me know... Hope to see you in La Grange... G. Kent Brown...

                          LaGrange Fly-In

                          Well it is now impossible for me to attend the Factory Fly-In.
                          I informed Bob Ollerton first so Tucker could be consoled in a proper fashion. I will call Harry on Monday. I am so sorry to miss this fine gathering, I only hope for good weather and a great time for all. We have been having one set back after another here in Alliance. Health of relatives, a late breaking spring, minor glitches in airplane repair. I explained about my being President of the ECOPA & having to be there on Wed night. NOW I have to be in the County Seat on Friday afternoon . DAMN ; oh well next time.
                          On now on to the Fly-In here in Alliance. WE have had many visitors flying back and forth & stopping in at Alliance. ( Buying Taylorcrafts and traveling home with them, thanks for the visits guys maybe write them up for the rest of the gang )

                          I hope someone will report on the Columbia Fly-In going on now. So sorry to miss being with you all again this year.

                          Remember this forumn is all about the Fly-In ; NO they have not delivered a ship yet!
                          bye Forrest

                            La Grange Open House/Fly-In

                            Forrest:

                            Sorry you won't be making it. Hopefully this will become a regular event just like your gracious sponsorship of the annual reunion at Barber's Field.

                            Have no fear, Captain Jon will be there this weekend to document the occasion!

                            Other good news, due to my daughter's recent expressed interest in learning to fly, it now looks like Traci T-Craft will not be sold after all! See you at Alliance!
