Dear Mooney Enthusiast,

I am sad to report that long time member Phil Baumann passed away on August 28.  He started coming to our lunches in June 2004, just 6 months after we started, and came frequently thereafter.  He will be missed.

We had good weather for our last event and 6 Mooneys brought 10 people to Winter Haven for a good time of visiting and eating.

Our next event will be this Saturday, October 14, at Flagler (FIN).  Foreflight shows their price of 100LL at $5.62 for self serve at this time.

All events start at 11:30.

Future events:

October 14, Flagler (FIN).
November 11, Lakeland (LAL)
December 9, Sebring (SEF)

Please let me know by Thursday if you are going to try to come so I can give the restaurant an approximate headcount.  If you tell me you are coming, and can’t come do not worry about telling me, just do not come.   I do not want anyone flying for any reason if they shouldn’t.

Hope to see you soon,

Dave and Ruth

Dear Mooney Enthusiast,

We had some low weather initially, but basically good weather for our last event at Flagler.  Three Mooneys and one Piper brought 8 people to lunch.  The initial low weather delayed three people who arrived as the rest were leaving, so Jim Waymire, Ruth , and I stayed and visited while they ate their lunch. 

Our next event will be this Saturday, November 11, at Lakeland (KLAL).  Foreflight shows their price of self serve 100LL at $4.95 for self serve at this time.

All events start at 11:30.

Future events:

November 11, Lakeland (LAL).
December 9, Sebring (SEF).
January, 13, Williston (X60).

Please let me know by Thursday if you are going to try to come so I can give the restaurant an approximate headcount.  If you tell me you are coming, and can’t come do not worry about telling me, just do not come.   I do not want anyone flying for any reason if they shouldn’t.

Hope to see you soon,

Dear Mooney Enthusiast,
 
In spite of some IFR weather in the morning, we had 9 Mooneys and 2 Pipers bring 16 people to Fort Pierce at our last event.  The food and company were great.  While we were there, Home Land Security showed up with a highly modified King Air which they showed us.  The offered to answer our questions, but when the dust settled many were classified and got a “no comment” answer.  I did find out however that they can read the name and hailing port on the transom of a sailboat at an altitude of more than 1,000 feet.  Guess you shouldn’t relieve yourself over the stern (not a good idea for safety reasons anyway) or play around with your favorite squeeze in the cockpit.  Pictures of their airplane below (I hope).
 
Our next event will be this Saturday, June 8, at the Sebring Airport (SEF).
 
All events start at 11:30.

Future events:

Ruth and I have sold our house on Lake Harris and moved to an over 55 community.  Our new address is 1023 Nantucket Sound, Mt. Dora, 32757.  Our phone numbers and email are unchanged.  The new owners of our house did not want the trains, so they went to a friend who is building a garden RR in North Carolina.
 
Hope to see you soon,
