The first day of Short Wings Over Saratoga has begun! The Meet and Greet just took place here at the Saratoga Springs Holiday Inn (a nice hotel in a convenient location, just like Convention Chair Andy Seligson promised!) and, I believe, a forum with President Peter Lubig on Aerial Photography is about to start.
After starting out by car this morning from Buffalo, NY and driving through a lot of rain, my family arrived at about 5:30, about midway though the Meet and Greet. It’s always good to see members of our Short Wing Family and meet some new people. I don’t have a lot of information for you yet on things that happened earlier today, nor do I have info on how many are here, but I hope to gather more information and pictures and post things as soon as possible.
This is what I have heard:
- Some more planes arrived yesterday and I understand we have about a dozen at the airport (5B2)
- Originally, about 50 airplanes were to fly in
- Many people, like my family, decided to drive
- Others started to fly but eventually decided to turn back home
Though some had to turn back, we still have a good-sized crew of Short Wingers here ready to start a great week!
I don’t have other pictures to share with you at this moment but can offer a picture of my cool Short Wings Over Saratoga bag and name tag – it’s something!
Thanks already to the Short Wings Over Saratoga crew who are putting on this convention!
