Four weeks away till Bham event. Hope your ready for some fun. Looks like we had our last little bit of winter blow thru Central Alabama this week. Temps this weekend are suppose to be in the 60s and next week they are suppose to be in the 70s. Birmingham Bill didn't see his shadow couple weeks ago. So maybe this our early spring about to begin. This is the time of year the weather starts changing for us. Trees and flowers will start budding and blooming. Go to Daylight Savings time in couple of weeks, that is always nice.

Looking forward to seeing my friends that I have became acquainted with over the last 20 years. Been getting emails and calls about the event the last week, so pilots are ready to have some fun and fly and party.
Few donations have arrived for the pilot raffle, so thanks to the companies that have sent those.
4 weeks from today hope to see you all in Bessemer,AL having a great time and enjoying the weather.

3 weeks till the Central Alabama Helicopter Fly-In. Weather has been in the 70s this week with some rain mixed in. 10 day forecast says we will have 50 deg days next week and couple of nights with temps just below freezing. Mother Nature is going to give us one last blast of winter breath.
Hope to see you all March 14th-16th at the event. This is our 20th Anniversary and we plan to make it a good one.
