Day 2 of the Convention has come to an end. We’ve had a lot of rain! Still, Short Wingers are out having fun when the weather is good and enduring some rain showers when they must.
As reported earlier today, we had the Saratoga National Battlefield Site tour this morning
Other happenings today included:
- Hand Propping seminar at the airport this morning
- Membership Luncheon with door prizes and Robert Fuller, SWPC Member #1 as our speaker
- Membership Meeting
- Seminar on 337s and STCs
Late this afternoon, I and my family including my niece, Chelsea (she lives in the Hudson Valley and came up to visit with us today – we haven’t seen her in 10 years so this was a real treat for us!) enjoyed some time swimming in the pool then headed out to the airport to look at planes and take pictures. It started to rain when we got to the airport so we took some pictures and cut that visit short. We decided to stop for dinner a nice Italian restaurant, Limoncello, right across from the hotel and got inside before the rain really started coming down. The food there was great and four other convention-goers were at the restaurant as well.
Eventually, the skies cleared. Our meal done, we walked downtown to check out the shops and get dessert at Cafe Gelato. We saw a dozen members of our Short Wing Family downtown as well and stopped to chat. On the walk back, we meandered through Congress Park, a huge, beautiful park right next to our hotel. Our hotel location is truly ideal and this is a very nice hotel and wonderful city!
Thanks again to the Northeast SPWC Chapter for picking such a great location for this year’s convention and for all of your hard work to make this year’s convention a success!
