It seems by next week we will have elected a new president of the United States! During the primaries, Fantasy of Flight had visits from the Ron Paul Blimp, Rudy Giuliani and John McCain! McCain’s daughter was with her father on the campaign trail and she wrote on her blog that Fantasy of Flight was the coolest place they stopped!
Yesterday, Sarah Palin, made a stop and spoke to several thousand people. The place was crawling with Secret Service as well as officers from the local Sheriff’s Department. Only several days before we were approached about doing an event here and all the Fantasy of Flight employees came together to pull off getting the facility ready for the event. The GOP rented our Maintenance Hangar and Thursday the Hangar was dumped of airplanes and cleaned. By Friday evening there were bleachers, giant American Flags, a central platform with a podium set up, all with sound and lights! People started arriving before the gates opened at 9:00am and Sarah arrived and spoke around noon.
Not ever wanting to let an opportunity go by, we placed flyers under everyone’s windshield wipers promoting our Roar ‘n Soar the following weekend on November 8th and 9th. This will be our second annual event, which will host Vintage Aircraft, Racing Boats, Cars, R/C Model Aircraft, Skydivers, Aerobatics, etc. We hope everyone will come out and join us next weekend!
Sarah just happened to leave with an autographed Gee Bee book, “All of Life is a School” for her two youngest children! I tend to be apolitical and only hope that we all reach beyond ourselves and follow our dreams! Best of Luck to everyone!
