This was my third year attending the Gathering of Mentors at the Palm Springs Air Museum. The weather was hot, but the winds were calm on Saturday and the visibility was fantastic. Sunday was gusty, but we still managed to get some great formations together. A big thanks goes out to Gene Ramirez and John Hill with the museum and the army of volunteers that helped us out with ramp space and all kinds of accomodations. Another thanks goes out to Bob Cannon of Cannon Aviation Insurance for the sponsorship and support. A BIG personal thanks goes out to Marc Russell for providing not only the ride down and back, but for providing a good, stable platform to take photographs from.
