Young Eagles Rally

October 8, 2011

For our September rally we have perfect mid-summer weather, with temperatures well into the 80's, almost no wind and almost cloudless skies.

Between the Blackstone Valley Young Marines group and the others, we flew a total of 32 Young Eagles. The big news is the chapter flew its 2500th Young Eagle! Between all the variables like accounting for a couple of non-chapter pilots and not knowing exactly what order the kids got flown in, I won't try to identify a particular kid or pilot. I do know EAA had us down for a total of 2479 going in, and we flew more than 21 on Saturday.

Detailed scorecard:

Nels Anderson 6
Richard Dupee 1
Jim Ellis 4
Bob Glorioso 4
Clyde Kessel 11
Greg Sheets 3
Graeme Smith 3
TOTAL 32
