Check out new pictures of Radial Velocity on their Facebook page and see the FlyerTalk logo on their plane:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Radia...15308101897979

They have shoutouts to the FlyerTalk events around the Dahl Fund drive/Radial Velocity at Reno Air Race show. They also are giving the progress of the plane as it flies cross country to Reno.

"John and the airplane are currently in Galesburg, IL for the National Stearman fly-in, a traditional stop he makes before heading out to Reno. He will depart Galesburg tomorrow morning for his two-day trek to Reno."

Thank you SanDiego1K for providing the FB post. I figure I'll post the picture directly on the forum.

Also, thank you all for your generosity. The success we've had this year is beyond what I imagined.

Hope to see you in Reno. I'll be there evening of 9th - morning of 12th. My schedule did not cooperate for the dates of the actual races (12-16), but there is enough going on early in the week (time trials and social events) that it will be fun regardless.

Sounds like a great event / raffle and I am happy to support this cause. Good luck on your event!

Radial Velocity is looking better every year, with those added FlyerTalk stickers! I'm going to try to make the Sep 10 dinner if at all possible.

Not long to go folks, let's give this endeavor a hand or two!

FT dinner in Reno - Saturday September 15

[PLEASE PRIVATE MESSAGE ME TO MINIMIZE CLUTTER ON THIS THREAD.]

Would there be interest in an FT dinner in Reno on Saturday September 15? This is the night before the final day of the air races. If there is interest (shown by how many PM messages I get), I'll start a new thread in CommunityBuzz to organize. If I do, I will post a reference to that thread here.

SFO Dinner DO

I will be in SFO on a layover tomorrow and we will have the drawing for the winner of the T-6 ride at the Dinner DO. I will pull out a few extra names and if the winner does not wish to take the ride he can give it away to a friend or to the next name I drew. The same will go for the tickets for the Reno Air Race. Of course if we reach $20,000 there will be a second ride given but Air Race tickets are not included. Currently our total is $12,791. We are still working on a $5000 match with $4208 to go.

Thank you all for your support. This has been a successful fund raiser and you have exceeded my expectations.
