Happy crowds; Packed Seminars
Sporty’s welcomed more than 100 airplanes and their occupants as well as many guests who arrived by car to Sporty’s Tenth Annual Fly-In.
“Counting attendance is always an iffy proposition, but at Sporty’s, we can count free hot dogs,” says Sporty’s President Michael Wolf. “We grilled and distributed more than 1100 hot dogs to Fly-In attendees.
In addition to their free lunch, Fly-in attendees took advantage of free seminars with iPad flying and ForeFlight’s seminar the most well attended with standing room only. In addition, an array of exhibits attracted questions and interaction with industry representatives.
At noon, Sporty’s Sweepstakes Airplane, a brand-new RV-12, was awarded to John Ballard, of Midlothian, Texas. Ballard had ordered merchandise from Sporty’s for his son, who is a pilot.
Next year’s Fly-in and Sweepstakes award is scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2015.
