SUMMARY:  Hurricane Floyd takes website down, 22 days until Bronco Fest, New Members

Hi Folks,

This is going to be quick tonight. At 0130 9/15/99 I have been unable to contact our Web site server. It may be down due to Floyd. Our best wishes go out to all of you in Florida whether or not Floyd has you bore sighted. [Melbourne experienced winds of about 65mph and lost power for about four hours from the storm as it brushed by. The most appropriate description is that we didn't dodge a bullet, we dodged a cannonball. In any case, there was very little damage around town, no damage to our ISP and once the power came back, all was well. - MSW]

Today is the last day to vote for the Bronco Buster award. If you haven't yet voted, please do so now at:

New Members: I am delighted to announce the following new members and welcome each of them aboard our growing organization. We are now 94 strong. Please welcome;

Ed Gillespie ( Ed was the original and Chief Test Pilot on the OV-10 with North American back in the 60's. He is also our newest LIFER and lives in Gahana, OH.

Tom Kemp ( Tom was a former member of the 23rd TASS at NKP. "Nail 14" is also a very active member of the Air Force Association here in Fort Worth.

John Gibbs ( "Gibber" has signed on for 3 years with us. He was a "Prairie Fire" FAC with the 23rd TASS and also did some IP work with the 549 TASTS at Hurlburt Field, FL. He's cleaning up in Austin, TX these days.

Kurt Mason ( "Smoke" isn't a new member, but he just got wired, so we wanted everyone to have his address. He is busy in Edmonds, WA putting together a helicopter. Good luck "Smoke."

Welcome Aboard all!

Bronco Fest is only 22 days and a wake-up. We've decided to not charge a late fee this year, since we got a late start ourselves. So, let us know quick if your coming so we can set a place for you.

Best regards,


If you have any additions or corrections to this item, please let us know!
