The Winnebago National Rally does a good job of providing entertainment and other things to do. Last Sunday, the Forest City police had a benefit omelet breakfast at the local airport. This was a fun event that even included a pretty good omelet. Just like a restaurant, the quality of the omelet was somewhat dependent on the skill of the volunteer. I picked a good one. In addition to the rally participants, it was also a fly in for airplane pilots. This was a great flashback for me, as I spent many years flying small to large aircraft. I attended many such fly-in events for an expensive breakfast. In fact, there were at least four planes attending this breakfast that I have many hours in.
After breakfast, we walked the flight line and enjoyed the well maintained aircraft, including a 1945 Howard that was used as a military ambulance. It was in pristine condition and had a little note reminding folks to look but not touch.
Later in the week there was a very popular event, the classic car parade. This is always well attended with state parties along the parade route and everyone taking the opportunity to talk with the many car owners’ about their special vehicles.
