This year's event was greatly expanded from those in the past; and while the inclement weather prevented more airplanes from arriving on Saturday than hoped, the event still attracted more people than in years past.
The PCAAD Group announced the results of several fundraising events. During the event, the parking lots were managed by volunteers from the Cloverdale and Greencastle high school band programs. The result from the free will donations collected was $700 divided evenly between the two band programs.
Nancy Madru was the winner of the raffle drawing. She will receive up to two hours of ground instruction, plus an hour of flight instruction courtesy of Dixie Chopper Air.
Despite the overcast weather on Saturday and a few rain showers on Sunday, the Harold Broyles Young Eagle Rally, hosted by Greeencastle Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, soared. Some 145 Young Eagles took to the air over the weekend.
The PCAAD group also announced that it was able to donate $1,000 to this cause. The EAA is planning on using this money to help send two young individuals to the EAA's Air Academy next summer.
The PCAAD group would like to thank all its sponsors, patrons and volunteers who helped to make this year's event a success. The group's goal is to bring awareness to the facilities of the Putnam County Airport, and to help local organizations with fundraising.
The group an-nounced the dates for 2012 as Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 8-9.
