Finally, after multiple scrubs due to weather the Mid-Atlantic region pilots of the Beech Aero Club (BAC) were able to fly into Ocean City, Maryland - KOXB.I served as ground transportation to shuttle pilots to our restaurant of choice, the Harborside Bar & Grill. Four aircraft made the event, two Sundowners, one Super III, and one Sierra.

I was testing my new Sentry with Foreflight on my iPhone and it worked just fine. The pattern was pretty busy with traffic coming and going along with school planes doing pattern work.
We made two trips to get everyone to and from the restaurant. Crab cakes or some seafood was the order of the day. I had fish and chips, Dave, Rob and Les had the crab cake platter and Alan had the combo. The combo looked really good, it had fish, crab cake, shrimp and I think scallops.
There was plenty of airplane talk about avionics, paint shops, and airport hangar rental fee discussion. Good flying chatter about airfields that are no longer available (Bader filed in NJ) and completing the Maryland airports challenge.
It was a fun day and a beautiful day to fly. I'm looking forward to the next Mid-Atlantic event and hopefully attending with our new plane.
Alan spotted a plane at the self-serve fuel pump and he recognized the tail number. He told us it was the plane he first soloed in, in Greenville, NC.
Thanks Bill F for the reminder in your comment. I grabbed the photo from Alan's facebook post.
