A wonderful Leaf-Peeper Fly-In was hosted today, September 28, at our home airport, KRUT in Rutland, VT.
Thanks of those who drove and flew in, and those members who setup, cooked, served and cleaned up. Special thanks to the Gecha's (Mike, Kevin, Brian, Casey, Sarah, and Kathy), Tracy Adams, Steve DeClue, Bob Burke, Bob Dean, Mary Ellen Kilgallen, Chris Reece, our FBO Columbia Air Services (especially John and Bud who worked toady).
And to the Civil Air Patrol for the Precision Landing Event and all they do to make flying safer and better for us all.
