After two rescheduling episodes, we finally had a beautiful day for a most enjoyable event. Great new venue along Broadway St. in downtown Natchez strong mix of entries, including motorcycles, 8 plane formation air show and finally weather that could not have been better. The change of venue to pavement and to randomly park the field, as opposed to class parking, seemed to create a lot more interaction between owners and spectators. General Manager of the Grand Hotel, Walter Tipton and his staff could not have been more accommodating and we thank them very much.
We realize that needing to change the date twice before finally coming to an acceptable weather forecast date caused many to change and recharge their plans, but we had no choice in our determination to save the show.
However, the entry form states that you "realized you had an obligation to inform me if you needed to cancel". Many of you did not, but let me tell you why the courtesy to have done so was important. When you no show without notice it puts a very unnecessary burden on the judges to try to locate your entry, especially when we have open parking opposed to by Class. Also, we often need to adjust space allocation when we have excessive "No Shows"! Please try to be more thoughtful if you plan to show at a future Euro Fest!
