Hey Flight Fans! It has been over a month since I last posted a blog. So much has happened in the past 30 some odd days. Let me start with “Taking it to the Streets”. We joined up with some members of River Run Christian Church and helped out at Orange County Academy in Bithlo. I believe there is some video on the website.
After the work was done, I wanted to make a trip out to Fort Christmas. I spent a large amount of my childhood traveling this fine state, accompanying my Mom as she researched “Florida One Day Adventures and Weekend Getaways”. Her book was published in the early 90’s. I have found myself wanting to revisit most of these places and Fort Christmas was just around the corner.
The King Family joined me for this adventure. Before arriving at the Fort, we made a short trip out to Titusville to grab some food for the family. I was quite shocked by how close it all really is. Once we arrived to the park, I did my best to play History Buff. We only had one hour to get though the fort, due to its closing at 6pm. Mark and I ran though the old farm house and the Fort. We brainstormed some future ideas using the Flight and historical places in the area. All in all it was a fun trip.
Flight Scout league is wrapping up. I am almost all but set with the squad for the season. This new format has been a blast. I have seen a lot of great basketball, and also some quality players to work with. We will be completing the Scout League in the next week.
Our Streetball Event was on April 6th. It was a great success! If that is a showing of how the season will be, we are in for one heck of a season. Our home opener is on Friday May 13th, which is followed by Saturday May 14th. Please join us for the great weekend to open our new home at Avalon Middle.
We hope to post the complete roster in just about a week. I feel that this year’s team will not only be a competitive one on the court, but the individuals involved will make a difference in the community as well. It is my goal to make a team that Avalon Park can be proud of.
That is all for now! Please visit our page on Facebook and Twitter. Just search Florida Flight! As always, GO FLIGHT!
