May 10, 2017 – Over 40 Texas UFO members and guests congregated in Fredericksburg (T82) to celebrate the first “Deep in the Heart of Texas” UFO meeting. It was a coordinated effort on the part of three Texas Area Representatives (North Central Jim Cavender, South Central John Larrison and Southeast Dan Nicholson) to spread the word and drive participation.
The weather wasn’t perfect (016 OVC), but the food, the company and presentations were. Fixin’s included BBQ, cobbler and iced tea (what would you expect in Texas?), and presentations were made to the oldest and farthest traveled participant. The day’s highlight was a “Basic Med” presentation by TxDOT Aviation Director, David Fulton, who encouraged us to all consider the new Basic Med program, a program which eases the medical requirements for casual flyers.
