There's been some grumbling by a few businessmen about
the ' Pilots Ruby Rendezvous" because they didn't get to share
in the wealth. The truth is, there wasn't any "wealth" in the
fly-in, and once I explained just how the entire operation was
set up I don't think they'll have grounds for complaint.
In the first place, "Pilots Ruby Rendezvous" was not a profit
making venture. It was strictly a promotional scheme to boost
the Franklin area. It is important that everyone recognize this
fact The idea was not to make any money, but to assure future
tourist dollars by calling attention to the Cowee Ruby Mines.
The three motels, the restaurant, and the ruby mine co
operating in "Pilots Ruby Rendezvous" probably lost money on
the promotion. They're not complaining, however, because they
can see further than the end of their noses and recognize the
value of publicity such as that fostered by the "Pilots Ruby
Rendezvous" (FLYING MAGAZINE, and at least two other pub
lications, now plan to carry a story and pictures in the near
Now to the "profits" and those who were supposed to have
made a "killing" (I personally got $100,000 out of the deal!).
The visitors were here three <3i days Their total cost for
these three days was $15 (that's $5 a day i , which included
motel accommodations, five meals, digging at the ruby mines,
transportation, airport facilities (free tie down service), and
many other extras.
All of that for $15 per person. Now do you think there was
However, consider this: the future is bright for ruby fly-ins
similar to the one just held.
The Florida group plans to return next year for another
week end, and several other flying clubs want to do the same.
"Pilots Ruby Rendezvous" was just the beginning and it was
held purely for promotional reasons.
With this in mind, let me respectfully suggest that those of
you who felt "cheated" reconsider the purpose of the promo
tion and let's all work together to make sure any held in the
future will have equal success.

Bee man Don Smith is In love, and it's an odd love to say
There's a nest of mean, ornery hornets near his kitchen door.
He admits it is rare when a couple of them don't sting him
when he goes into the back yard. He had a puffed ear the other
day to prove a brief encounter with one.
"There have been times," he recalls with a chuckle, "when
I've made it across the yard without being stung."
Mrs. Smith explains his behavior with a tolerance befitting
a woman who knows her man:
"He's grown so fond of them, he's almost disappointed when
he isn't stung."
