Sunday 28 October
Well, the proverbial fat lady has warbled, and the show came to an
end last night with a very nice banquet in the "new" hangar
west of the DZ. Dinner was Chicken Cordon Bleu, catered by the fine
folks from the Holiday Inn, with salad, veggies, potatoes, and chocolate
cake for desert. Al Gramando read a long list of thank-yous that
included pilots, manifest, drivers, janitors, and so on, but when he got
to hosts Larry and Lil Hill, there followed a very long and worthy
standing ovation for the family that built this skydiving
paradise in the desert. It was a wonderful end to a wonderful week.
Oh yeah, some photos from last night. Here's what I got before the
batteries died. Ciao!
