Labor Day Weekend
by Steve Schmidt
This year's rally will go down in the history books as the 'Rainy Rally' and it the first 'International Rally'. Sam & Camellia Placentile of Toronto, Canada brought their Pulse.
Hurricane Isaac pushing north from the Gulf coast of New Orleans made for a wet weekend.
Saturday morning and early afternoon was overcast and dry for the Fly/In Cruise/In, however there was low turnout of aircraft, antique cars and people.
21 Pulses attended the rally this year on Saturday morning. After the rally, Judy and Ray Johnson treated everyone to lunch at their hangar. A real classy couple who know how to treat their friends.
Sunday evening we again met at the hotel for Convention dinner catered by Vicki Fisher. Many funny stories were told by Pulse owners of their day including Phil Martin running out of gas and Dave Bauer breaking a new clutch cable and had to be tow-barred back to the hotel.
