Brad's report on Laughlin doesn't sound so good. Maybe one of the
organizers should call the tower and see if they will let us take our

operating out of a trailer until their new hanger is built. Aircraft
can no longer taxi to the lower part of the field, and the old

The free water taxi still runs from the casino, across the river,

Rates for the water taxi up and down the river between casinos have
increased - $5 one way on the weekend. I stayed at the Flamingo and
walked where I
wanted to go.
