GOL 2014 has come to a close and I must say it was a great one. 14 Luscombes on Thursday was an awesome site as the sun set on Columbia. El Jardines was packed as usual with flyers still trying to unfold from being in their cramped airplanes for hours. The stories were getting more wild with each beer consumed and everyone was having a great time.
Thank you to everyone who made this year's fly-in a great success. Your board members work hard to put on a good show with good food and drinks but it is the members showing up and showing off their airplanes that make a great weekend. The early bird went to Randy Petite this year. All the way from Washington State and he managed to beat everyone else.
A very big thanks to Shelly O'brien for her work as the photographer. Without Shelly there would be no professional photography and you would not have those 600 megapixel images of your airplanes. Ok so 600 might be a little high but with the awesome editing she does, it makes it look that good. Please spend some time on her site browsing this years images. Shelly provides the pictures she takes at Columbia free of charge so if you like what you see please let her know how much you appreciate it. The link to her website is here.
