No Spring For You

In case you're not from around here or you're far enough away to not know what's going on it's still very much winter here in New Hampshire and Vermont. Snow depth is at least 2 feet just about anywhere you look.

Not likely that we'll be flying gliders any time soon at Post Mills but Springfield is open and ready to go. Walter wrote me today to say that the glider winter storage season has been extended another month. This seems like a good excuse for all those private owners to get a jump on the season and maybe others could at least go down to enjoy the action.

Let's all think warm thoughts and make that snow go away. I'm sick of it, how about you?

Barefoot In Florida

Karl, Rick and Lane are all smiles in sunny Florida.

From the background it looks like they're at the Senior Nationals at the Seminole Lake Gliderport.

What a shame they're missing all this good snow.

Looking out from my hangar. Think I'd make though that stuff?

Experimental Balloon and Airship Meet-May 16-18

Here is an announcement for the Brian's Balloon event at Post Mills:


Monday, March 3, 2014


From the turnout at the 2014 Annual General Meeting, it is clear that, after 25 years, we still have a strong and enthusiastic club.

We gathered, discussed our future, handed out jobs, and held elections - all without the excuse of a party or other incentive to get people to show up.  Everyone seems enthusiastic about being ready for the 2014 season (only 50 days away), and we are all looking forward to flying again.

Congratulations and thanks to the new Board of Directors: Greg, Mark, Paul, Tim, and a player to be named later.  These guys will be working hard for us in 2014, and we should not hesitate to work hard for them.
