Convention 2019 (9/13/19)
What a great convention we had in Savannah! We had a very good sized crowd of over 60 attendees from around the country and from as far away as Napa, CA. Many thanks to Bill Bell and his team from the Georgia Chapter who did an absolutely superb job of organizing and directing the events. The old southern port town of Savannah was a delight to visit with its moss draped tree covered squares and beautiful fine old homes, the River Walk area, and the many interesting museums. Of course for aviators it is hard to beat the Mighty 8th Air Force Museum next door to our hotel. Or, maybe it was the guided tour behind the scenes at the Gulfstream development and manufacturing facilities.
Can’t think of a better place for a banquet than under the wing of a B-17!
