Central New England Meetup

Talking the other day with Jeff "scofreyjet" Ward, we decided that the time has come to have a meetup of UCAP fans. The only challenge with this really excellent idea is "where" to have it. So I'm throwing out this question:

If you are at all interested in attending an informal gathering of UCAP fans (plus, for whatever it's worth, me), post here (or send and email to podcast@uncontrolledairspace.com) stating what city you would be coming from. We're hoping that the grouping of these replies will show us approximately where we should try to locate this.

No particular date in mind, but the sooner the better.

Well, so far things are weighted towards southwestern Connecticut! :lol:

More central would be Stockbridge, MA
There is a restaurant there run by a lady named "Alice".
Just stay away from the brownies or you may be flying before you get back to the airport.
Y'all play nice now.

Hmmm... is New England a long way from California?

If we can't all make it to this one, can we try to incorporate a UCAP meetup into Sun and Fun or other upcoming aviation events?

I'm interested. I'd be coming from DC (aka the "occupied territory"). How about something near or just north of NYC? It shouldn't be hard to get a few folks interested in a day trip to NYC with a lunch meet somewhere nearby.

Also, a meet and greet at Oshkosh this year would be great. Do you guys have time outside of your AirVenture Today jobs? Maybe a UCAP BBQ? We usually have 5 or 6 planes in the North 40 and would be glad to arrange the BBQ. We might even try to finagle a real gas grill this year! :shock:

Come April, I will be in California for most of the month, mostly in the Pine Mountain Lake (E45) area, but will definitely plan on getting some nice flying done.

We could put together some nice UCAP gettogether somewhere. I know Jack won't mind joining... ;)

Ciao, Luca
