KANSAS CITY LAYOVER 2007 BEST YET!!
MAY 18 - 20, 2007
The layover committee checked into the Hilton - Kansas City Airport on Thursday
and began preparations for the 2007 Kansas City Flight Crew Reunion/Layover.
The first to show up on Friday was Bob Stone (FAL Pilot 1977-1986) who
checked into the hotel at 9:30 am in time to go to breakfast with the layover
committee. And, the party was on!!!
By Friday evening, a good group of FLamily had checked in and we were enjoying
drinks and hors d'oeuvres in the lobby/bar area. Sometime around 9 pm the party
moved to the "Crew" room upstairs for more drinks, pizza, more stories and
Saturday began with breakfast at 10, although I found Jim Appleby holding court
with a small group in the "Crew" room about 8:30 that morning, already back at
telling each other lies and war stories. By 3 Saturday afternoon, the party was in full
swing again. The evening was filled with much laughter and picture taking. And,
thanks to JoDelle and Laura, two huge barrels of KFC showed up. Before the
evening was over we were joined in the "Crew" room by layover crews from the
"new" Frontier, Midwest, American and Chautauqua Airlines …. They could not
believe that after 21 years the "Old" Frontier was still so much a family and still
having the time of their lives together. I think I can safely say that we did show
them what an airline layover/party should be!!!!
Sunday morning saw us in the restaurant for breakfast at 10 … and then hugs,
kisses, hand shakes and "good-by until next year". This was probably our smallest
attendance for the KC Reunion/Layover … BUT, most everyone agrees that it was
probably our BEST!!!!
Those attending included: Bob Stone, Steve Tidler, Jim Appleby, Laura (Jones)
Colvin, Gerrie Donaldson, Lanette Duncan, Howard Logan, John Green, Mike
Gadow, Rusty Lambert, "Jack" Frost, JoDelle (Davidson) Burwell, Ken Larason,
Tom Hollister, Neil Miller, Terry Calkins, Dan & Grace Scantlin, B. J. Blackerby ,
Barb Carroll, Lisa Sachetta, Carl Lorenzen, Sue (Cahill) von Geyso, Frank von
Geyso, Ron Gallop, Claudia (Morersch) Roach and Phil Stallings.
The Committee - JoDelle Burwell, Lisa Sachetta, Laura Colvin, Steve Tidler and
Phil Stallings - would like to thank everyone who attended and helped make this
another successful reunion/layover. A special Thank You to John Green for
donating the FAL patches to be handed out to everyone in attendance.
