    Default The Next Generation of Reno Air Race Fans

    My oldest grandson is 2 1/2 years old and this was this 3rd air race, my newest grandson turned 4 months old and experienced his 1st.

    Orange happens to be one of their favorite colors.

    Our first grandchild. He's also 2-1/2, and it was also his 3rd Reno. We camped out at St. Michael's on Saturday night, and there was a military fighter departure at 0630-ish on Sunday, which woke him up. He rolled over, smiled at me and said "Grandpa, that was a BIG jet! And we get to go to the air races today!" I'm a lucky, lucky guy!

    Big Al,

    Yes indeed, life is great. I'm 60 days away from retirement, can't wait.

    I like the child size Section 3 shirts, next year we'll have to go see Bob for some.

    Thanks for sharing.

    My kids and one of Boomtowns. All of them have seen more NCARs than birthdays. If you look close you can Leo back there.

    Nice to see Pete still in the mix. Did he leave all of his books in the golf cart or is that what he's sitting on?

    Ha. Pete and Kevin were just sitting down to go through some numbers. Kevin immediately stopped that “debriefing” so he could talk to the kids and give them all T-shirts and take a couple pictures. I insisted Pete jump in there too. Huge thanks to Kevin for that. Such a good guy. Pete is ok too.
