Sun-N-Fun BBQ History

This whole event started in November 2004 when I turned to David and Jon and said "Since were going to Sun-N-Fun, why don't we have a BBQ for other Zenith builders and flyers? " At that time we expected a turnout of 15-20 people and all we would need to do is pack a couple of small BBQ's. Along came March and I posted the sign up sheet. Not long after, we had 50 pre-registered. Oh crap! We would need more than a couple of small BBQ's. Luckily, along came Rick Roberts with the offer to bring large BBQ's, tables, potato salad, and a couple of fine gentlemen to cook everything for us. After we had a hundred people pre-registered I turned to David and Jon to help out in the climbing costs of the event which was coming out of my pocket. They agreed and registration stayed open for anyone wanting to join. Shortly after, both

Jabiru USA

kindly approached us with donations to the event which GREATLY helped cover the costs of the event. Contributions from appreciative participants helped us to break even. Thanks folks!

With the success of having over 120 people show up during the evening, as well as the Heintz Family, the folks from Jabiru USA, we have decided to make it an Annual event for the Sun-N-Fun Show.

Since then Jabiru USA , William Wynne, Cummins Spinners, Flightcrafters and Quality Sport Planes as well as people through donations have all pitched in to help cover the costs of the event. Last year was the first time that the event did not break even, that was primarily due to not having the donation of time and equiptment of Rick Roberts who was unable to make it due to job requirements. This event was started when I was a builder and is kept as a builders event for builders. Please join in for a great evening and if you can lend a hand it would be well appreciated.
