"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

The Seekers were requested to perform the CAP tonight due to maintenance being performed on the Vipers.

This was the first time this summer that we were able to get together to fly a CAP and as always a good time was had by all as there was some target practice completed and we found that the majority of us have birthday's coming up this month!
