Gary Guilliat suggested a fly-out for lunch at Half Moon Bay on Sunday, Oct 19. He said the recent fly-out to McMinneville saw the best possible flying weather in Oregon, and the 3 couples that participated enjoyed the Spruce Goose display on Saturday. There is also an IMAX theater there. A stop on the coast Sunday morning for breakfast at Salishan, a resort near Gleneden, topped off the trip.
