COPA Hilton Head Fly-In

by on Oct.25, 2015, under Flying

The weather as is usually the case in the fall, was beautiful. COPA members from around the country started arriving as early as Wednesday, with the majority on Friday. Some flew in on Saturday. Rick Dawson, COPA SE Governor set up registration in the FBO and provided cold drinks for the arrivals on Friday afternoon. We rented a van and one of Chuck Copleys advanced student, JT, volunteered to be our driver for the weekend, making getting around much easier and more economical.

That evening we gathered at the Red Fish for coctails and dinner. Although the reservation had been made a month before and reconfirmed in person on Wednesday our private room had been double booked by mistake. So, being good pilots we had an alternate, extend the cocktail hour. This all worked out, since we had some late arrivals flying in from Florida, so they were right on time. A jolly time was had by all and we were off to a good start making new friends. By the way the restaurant gave us 10% off of our checks, which almost paid for the extra drinks consumed.

Tomorrow is going to be a full COPA Day.
