COPA Bedford, PA Weekend Fly-In

by on May.24, 2021, under Flying

COPA regional weekend fly-ins are back in business. Rhonda Tomlinson, NE Region Governor, assisted by Bethany Wardropper and their spouses, organized a weekend getaway at the Bedford PA, Omni resort. It was attended by over twenty COPA members, who enjoyed perfect weather for the event. There were all Cirrus models represented including an SF-50, with participants from as far away as Florida as well as many from the North East.

The group flew in on Thursday, with two local couples joining the group for a welcome reception that evening. On Friday morning the group boarded a bus and traveled to the Flight 93 memorial in nearby Shanksville. The memorial and museum were very interesting and extremely moving. After the tour, the group had lunch at a local Inn, the Lincoln Café. This was followed by wine tasting at the Bella Terra vineyard tasting room, then shopping, and browsing in historic Bedford. That evening the group dined at the historic Jean Bonnet Tavern.

Saturday, we took advantage of the Omni Bedford resort, some played golf at the Donald Ross golf course, some enjoyed the Spa, some went back into Bedford for more shopping and lunch, some did some hiking, but all had a great day. That evening we had the final reception and dinner at the hotel.

Sunday, morning the group scattered across the country either back to their home airport or extending their trip. It was another great regional event with friends getting together again and new COPA friends being added. Rhonda received a lot of ideas and volunteers to organize more get-togethers in the near future. It was obvious, that these COPA members missed the personal COPA gatherings and thoroughly enjoyed themselves at this one.
