The Return of Sinful Sundays - A Success

Robert W. LaDuke

The return of Sinful Sundays, to Lee Bottom, was a great success. Thanks to the generous support of the RAF, Jeff Smith, Mike Grecco, and various other volunteers, it went off without a hitch and drew many planes. Historically, events such as these take three years to get back up to speed. This one had the attendance as if they had never stopped.
As I mentioned early in the year, having decided to move away from the fly-in and toward Sinful Sundays, one of our decided goals was to have them run by various other groups.  The time has come to rebuild aviation in the area and we can’t do it alone. Therefore, we reached out to others to see if the interest was there. So far, so good.

The first event was the brainchild of Jeff Smith.  Being the the Kentucky liaison for the Recreational Aviation Foundation, he felt it was the perfect opportunity for us to work together. Our goals are similar and it made great sense to us. Therefore, Jeff was offered the opportunity and he approached the RAF. They too thought it was a great idea, and together they pulled it off nicely.
We simply cannot thank Jeff and the RAF enough.

You might also remember, from discussions earlier in the year, that we decided the sinful part of Sinful Sundays would be up to the people hosting it. The RAF often features an ice cream bar at their events (another similarity to Lee Bottom), and to make things easier the Ehrler’s Ice Cream truck was brought in. This greatly simplified everything, gave our volunteers something easier to work with, and allowed us to have great local business on hand. Everyone loved it.

Thanks again to everyone who participated and attended the event. We hope to see you at the next one, July 9th, 2017.

Vietnam is a spot that many people visit to cool-down and almost all of the people get their visa from the visa service and I also would recommend everyone to work with this service.
