Default Change Gears

Man, I had a nice conversation yesterday. One of my clients I do not see as often as I would like came in to get taxes signed, so I put 30 minutes aside just to talk.

He is finishing up helo flight school....

I had a lose commitment from someone to use a helo to take areal video of our May 20 Poker Run, that was going to cost, but it would be worth it. Now he has agreed to do it for free, and then take people on rides, which is where he would make his money. I may have to pay for fuel, but no money for his time or time of the machine.

This will save a bunch of money for the MP Unit Family Support Group we are sponsoring at the poker run, and the guy flying the helo is a boat nut who had to sell his in prepping to buy a house....

some days things just go well....

Why not pay for the fuel have him charge for rides and donate the money from the rides to the family?

good idea, this is still developing, but it is all good...

If I have someone who is "into it" it will be a LOT mroe fun than just someone hired to make a few passes....

Hopefully this clicks off without a hitch...
