I saw the "Blues" perform a couple of weekends ago up in Redding, California and the show they do is simply awesome. I have seen the one they do for Fleet Week in San Francisco many times and will do so again this year--nothing can compare to their performance over the City and the Bay--I recommend that people take the time to see this show this year. Also check out my long time friend Julie Clark earlier each day as she performs in her Chevron sponsored T-34--her performance too is outstanding. She is a former bay area resident and a retired Northwest Airlines Captain. You won't be disappointed in her show.

For all those people who enjoy seeing the Pleasanton Balloon Platoon perform in parades, then this is your chance to see them in the Columbus Day Parade in San Francisco. We have been involved is this parade for many years, so come join us on Sunday noon, the 11th of October. There are many activities during Fleet Week.....check out the local papers and newscasts.
