    Maine Wings for Wishes 2022

    Jim is going to hold off mass marketing until later, but Iíd like to propose something to you guys.

    Why not put this years event, Aug 5-7 on your calendar, and fly on up to Maine for some good old fashioned hangar stories and campfire chats? Maybe even get reacquainted with the white mountains and the Maine seacoast. Find out why itís so special to us.

    I mean, think about it. August in Texas? Arkansas? Florida? Kansas dust bowl? They all sound like a great a time to go to Maine.
    Steve has a new plane to fly. Two actually.
    Pete has an Amphib he can take anywhere.
    Mike, when did you last get to Maine?
    Randy, yes, you need to get away.
    SJ, Laura wants to see the coast and eat lobsta.
    Henry, youíve got guys to tend the crops. Fly up here and relax in the land of potatoes.
    Oldcuby, newcuby, futurecuby, And all the rest of youÖ.. Jim wants 50 aircraft on the ground.
    But 10 of you guysÖ. That would be priceless.

    Plan a week, youíll extend it another once you get there.

    Put it on your calendar and circle it in Red. Get the old guard to Maine. Letís make it even more special to Jim Crane. If you do, your life will be even more enriched than it is now.

    Remember, If not now, then when???
    August.
    5-7, at a minimum.

    Thanks for the shot across the bow. Never hurts to get out in front of things. I appreciate the help.
    im really wanting to break a record this year with attendance. I set a goal of 50 planes
    The things that folks liked in years past we plan to do again, Friday night kickoff at the ice cream shack at the beach, a day at the coast ,swimming at 2 falls
    and some wood fired pizza Iíve got a couple more things in the wind as well
    We are looking for donations of goods and services for the silent auction too. Even some airplane psrt# sell well
    Stay tuned for more info

    We will try and find a replacement pinata.

    On a serious note, the accessory case on the C90-8 took a bit of a hit from a crank gear that gave up the ghost. So, if anyone has a serviceable c90-8 accessory case do let me know.....

    Here is the Host: And master of ceremonies; Sunday morning after scrambled eggs with Maine Fiddleheads, Crane Bros fried spuds, Jimmy Dean and Peet's Coffee. Looks like it added a few seconds to his T/O run......Lol. Still only a few hundred feet. This is sure to be a great event! Don't miss it.

    Thanks Jim.
    Iím coming to stay. I may not leave. ..willingly.

    Iíll be up Thursday night. That pizza is excellent. And the ride over and back in the truck bed always brings out some youthful memories. Maybe skip the bus and just get a bigger truck this year.

    I'll be in Peter's wake Jim, but not far behind. That swimming hole is pretty special, and the ice cream, and the corn, and the pancakes, and the good people.

    Plan to fly in on Thursday with Judy following in the coach with the breakfast fixins. Plan on blueberry pancakes with Vermont maple syrup, bacon and eggs, scrambled if the roads are rough and ham and cheese omelets. If someone has a special breakfast request let me know on August 8th.
    I will need a head count by August 3rd.

    The schedule is getting refined a bit more now. We have been invited to have breakfast at Sugarloaf regional. It's the prettiest airport in Maine. We will leave fairground fairly early have breakfast at the airport, then Captain Russell and I will lead two flights thru the dead river gorge on our way over to Dexter for the official start of Wings for Wishes
    putting it all together now
