Adult Christmas Party

Hosted by Hunt and Pat Palmer-Ball

December 1, 2019

Location: Audubon Country Club, 3265 Robin Road, Louisville KY

Time: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM


The Adult Christmas Party is heading our way. This is a special time of year that our club members love to come together and visit with each other and reflect on all the good times we have had during the year. We will gather for Social Hour to visit, swap stories and just enjoy the Holiday starting at 1:00 p.m. Dinner will begin approximately at 2:00 p.m. going until 4:00 p.m.


It is also a good time to share our bounty with those people less fortunate than we are. KYANA is so blessed for what we have and what we are able to do. Again this year we are asking all of our members to be generous in bringing can goods for Dare to Care. This is the 4th year for our Charity to help those in need. In 2017 we donated 828 pounds of food and 2018 we exceeded that number with 1100 pounds of food. We hope that everyone feels good about our success and hope everyone will be generous like last year and maybe we can even exceed what we have done. Examples of the 10 most needed items: peanut butter, soup, canned fruit, beans, rice, tuna, fruit juice, pasta and canned vegetables.


This year’s cost will be $33.00 per person. When you check in you will get your check back (whether or not you donate food). Just to let you know why the increase in the cost per person is to make sure the cost of the meal is covered if for any reason you cannot attend once your reservation is made. 


Suggested DRESS CODE! Ladies should dress appropriate for what you would wear to church or a special event (no jeans please). Men should wear dress pants (Please no jeans), A dress shirt with collar and sport coat (ties would be optional). This is our once a year dress up event. 


So please come and play Santa to the needy, visit with your friends and have a wonderful meal. See you in December.

Event Recap

     

BowmanFest   2019 - October 5th and 6th


  

What a unique event with perfect weather this year! The Bowman Field Airport celebrated its 99th year with Bowman Fest 2019. Saturday morning, October 5th, started off with a 5K Run on the Runway race that had approximately 600 participants. 


Last year saw KYANA cars placed among some of the airplanes on static display, but this year, due to a larger number of airplanes arriving, and the amount of early foot traffic on Saturday morning (provided by the runners) we were able to display our old jalopies on the Runway. What a unique and once in a lifetime occurrence to see about 25 beautiful show cars being escorted down a runway while vintage planes were taking off and landing around them.


KYANA showed up with a very diverse group of cars that was very well received by attendees. Our location on the runway was easy on the autos and easy on the large number of spectators that went by. The show directors estimated about 10,000 people attended on Saturday and a little less on Sunday. Plus, our runway location made it easy to leave the airport at any time.


Lynn Harpring summed things up well by stating: "Bowmanfest was a great event. In addition to the many fine KYANA people with interesting, rare and beautiful autos, the airplane exhibit of antique and unusual planes was a real crowd pleaser as well as the other ancillary attractions. It was impressive to note the large number of attendees, from oldsters like me to children in strollers, and others of all ages in between. "


We had a great lunch on both days, with Saturday being pizza from Bearno's and with Sunday being homemade sandwiches from Morris Deli right down the road. Plus, the organizers placed a 20 ft. by 20 ft. tent for us to use during the festival.


There are some great pictures of planes on the BowmanFest.com website and on the Facebook page for the Bowman Field Friends. One of the neatest moments of the event was when a young Down Syndrome girl commented on how she liked Bennie Coleman's 1955 Ford Thunderbird, and he proceeded to take her for a trip on the runway in his T-Bird. She will remember that the rest of her life!


After speaking to the Event Organizers they were very impressed with the foot traffic and the positive comments that our show cars generated. They said that they will make the cars more prominent in next year's event so you won't want to miss next year, the 100th anniversary of Bowman Field. Should be a great event!
