Iola is about 50 miles northwest of Oshkosh, Wis., and home to Central County Flyers Association. A good many have heard of their weekly, since 2002, Friday lunch gatherings. Year-round, pilots and non-pilots fly (or drive) to 68C for a hot meal prepared by Bill Kinsman. Cost is $8 for any member (who has paid a $10 life-time membership fee). For those of us less familiar with 68C, Barry Adams wrote a wonderful story titled, “Fridays at the fly-and-dine” for the Wisconsin State Journal. It is well worth the read. Friday’s menu is Chicken Tenders, french fries, salad, rolls, cake, coffee and milk. Soda is $.75 extra.
