One of the biggests days yet.

We had fly-ins, drive-ins, bike-ins, motorcycle-ins and walk-ins today at the hangar at Arcadia Municipal for the monthly pancake breakfast! Single engine, twin engine, biplanes and everything in between arrived by air. When you add that to the mix of Ag Pilot training at Eagle Vistas it looked like a real airport today and that is our goal. Could not have been a better day for such an event and everyone enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting new ones. At one time the sky was full of traffic and the line for pancakes was over 20 people deep. Our griddle can do 15 large ones at a time but the guys mixing and flipping were out straight all morning. They put out over 800 flapjacks! To go along with that the girls served 450 sausage about 5 gallons of coffee & 7 gal of OJ. We came very close to running out of food.
