Slowing Down to Win

A fly-in is an event where pilots, people, and airplanes show up to celebrate aviation. In Idaho, the closest one to us is in Garden Valley. Even though it’s a mountainous location, it has a maintained grass strip. By contrast, Oshkosh, Wisconsin hosts the largest fly-in in the world.

In addition to good food and good company, there are games. I’ve attached two short video clips that capture the flying spirit. You’ll notice that in both cases—“tossing the bean bag” and “spot landing”—it’s vital to slow down to win.

BEAN BAG TOSS
The closest aerial-dropped bean bag to the orange cone wins

SPOT LANDING
The tires that touch down closest to the chalk line (on or after, not before) wins

There are many instances in life when speed is beneficial, but sometimes it’s detrimental.

When was the last time you slowed down to win?
