NASSAM 2019 - 10 days... who's going?
« on: June 02, 2019, 01:06:29 PM »
NASSAM Finger Lakes/Corning is in 10 days.  Who's going on the forum?

Plus, more specifically, who is leaving on the Tuesday morning from the NoVA, DC, MD, Southern PA area, that's interested in a convoy?  I figured that, given Rt15 seems to be the best way to go, folks could meet in Frederick, MD and leave from there, picking up PA guys along the way.

If Critter's not going I may as well stay home.

Actually I was going to look into going but time got away from me and... it's not going to happen this year.

Well, this is sad.  My first NASSM and only a couple of people going?  That's very disappointing :(

Not in the cards for me this year.   I actually considered crashing with the Alfa for a day or 2

I brought my drone too. Here's one from the group photo event at Elmira Drive-in theater. There were 76 cars at this point, but after the stragglers arrived, I was told that 101 cars were there by the end. I

And of course, NASSAM would not be complete without GJs shoeshine service...

Low(ish)-level, row fly-by of the group photo shoot in the Elmira Drive-In.  Apologies for the poor piloting skills... I have not had a lot of practice with my new drone :(  Also the battery got low before I could finish the rearmost rows, so apologies again for those I missed.



...and here's a fly-by after the torrential downpour at the car show on Market Street.  Watch it before it gets removed due to an 'unfortunate gesture' from a person who shall not be named <cough> @reedred </cough>
