The Adventures of the Chain Gang

Postby Tailspin » Sun Apr 29, 2012 10:33 am

Hi All

A bunch of us decided to call ourselfs the Chain Gang - The reason for this is that we all fly 503's and we sound like a bunch of Chain Saws. Anybody can join the group and there are very few rules and there are badges etc. If you don't fly with a 503 there are badges for you too and you can also be part of the group.

Our rules are simple and Fly & Enjoy There are NO Monthly meetings, NO fees, NO POLOTICS - JUST FLY MAN

Hey all..

Tailspin...u forgot about the entry requirement....that is...to join the chain gang, you are required to participate in 1 fly away with the members.... (^^)

Just need to get our Aerie back up in the air and I will "apply" for membership! I like the T's and C's (^^)

Perhaps we can arrange a Vulture Squadron/Chain Gang Fly in sometime? Ntokozo would be a great venue, I know you've just been there but hey...gonna be a while before I can fly anyway, and you cant get too much of a good thing? 8)

....been wondering where the name came from... :lol:

PS: Well done on reaching 100 hrs TS! (^^) (^^) (^^)

Hey all ##

I echo every word,what an awesome trip..

Thank you to all :!: :!: :!:

Tribal and fam,it was really comfortable,still laughing about the key to the tent :lol: First tent I had to unlock :mrgreen:

We were really comfortable,it was awesome..like home away from home vhpy

Gaylord and Thatch for the awesome flight with Tribal and the Chain Gang from Aeroden.

The flight to Aeroden was not an easy one as we had a headwind of note..the rotors from the Southern and Northern ridge gave us a klapping of note..Gav even went quiet for a while there.. :lol:

Alpha..you need to get low to land :lol:

Thanx Gav and Gary,you guys are really awesome... Chain Gang Rocks ##

Looking forward to the next one (^^)
