    The grass strip foundation, may spell the rebirth of many great traditions present when many of us learned to fly in past years. I learned on a small grass strip, behind a Shell gas station on Sheriden Road i North Buffalo, NY in 1946. No radio, no radar, no ATC,just a smooth grass strip with N & S runways. Solo in 6 hours, was the biggest thrill a teen ager could feel.
    Best wishes for a successful operation.

      I met Steve at The Richmond Hill, Ga, Farmers Market yesterday. He really liked my Aviation Wood Burning art and asked me if I would like to join the grass strip foundation. Today I drove out to his airfield. A nice looking field. I can not wait to recieve the membership form to join the foundation, and the Coastal Art Society. I to learned to fly as a teenager in 1968, and was a member as a Cadet in the Civil Air Patrol.
