October 29: Wedding/Camping/Flying Celebration!

Thanks everyone for all of your heartfelt comments and well wishes! Shell and I really appreciate it :-) However, we don’t want the weekend to just be about us. We very much want the weekend to be about celebrating life and the sport we love. Please make known any recent or upcoming birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions that should also be celebrated for next weekend!

Yesterday we all heard that Pete “Reaper” Michelmore was selected as USHPA’s instructor of the year. Congratulations, Reaper! Wow, what an honor and definitely deserving of a big weekend long party! Next weekend is going to be a big long party to celebrate lots of awesome things :-)

Shell and I will be bringing some frosty sodas from Ching’s (fifteen assorted cases), a few big bottles of grape juice, burgers, hot dogs and carne asada tacos (prepared by Friar Duck’s smoker), and a wedding cake for a lunch to follow our airborne wedding on Saturday, October 29th. No set lunch time, just land after your flight and help yourself to the food, drink and cake. Please bring a beach chair for your sitting pleasure.

We are planning on doing the ceremony at 12 noonish, either in the air or on the beach. We are not sure of a head count, so please think of this event kind of like a meeting/party/camp-out, and bring some bevies and goodies to snack on. We are going for camp style casual and just go with the flow.

Thom, Jeff and I have reserved campsites 7, 8, 9 and 10 for Friday, October 28th and 29th. The Sidehill clan will be setting up at site 10. Unfortunately, Jeff and his family will be out of town, and will be greatly missed. Thanks again to Jeff for helping me to get the sites! So, sites 7, 8, and 9 are all wide open for anyone that wants to pitch a tent and partake in the celebrations. Also, campsites 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are still available. Here is the link to reserve.

Much Aloha,
Maui Doug and Shelly

We will have kayaks and boards for the non-flyers and grounded flyers.

Thanks MauiDoug & Shelly for activating a much needed celebration for all.

Reaper also has a new batch of students that would be great to meet. I think it is time for name tags.
