Default You guys missed a good one.

Central Sierra Helicopter Meet was a grand success. There were a couple of
R-44s, several R-22s, Two Bell 47s and two Jet Rangers. With all of the
certified clutter out of the way, there were two helicycles flying, several
under construction showing the various aspects, a Mosquito flying all over
the place and a Scorpion two that didn't have any trouble flying at the
density altitude of better than 3600'. The Robbies were selling rides and
instruction and one of the Jet Rangers gave a bunch of free rides, (I got 10
min stick time) and a lady owner of one of the Bell 47s gave a gob of rides
to the kids that were there. Dry camping but food was available that was
great at prices that still seem too cheap. $2.50 for a hot dog. The weiner
was so big it pretty much filled the bun. Free coffee.... Yeah you missed a
good one.
