Wings 'N Wheels 2016

Come help us at this really fun fundraising event for Angel Flight East (which transports children in need to specialized hospitals and doctors for treatment). Wings 'N Wheels is a Vintage Aircraft and Antique Auto Show at Wings Field in Blue Bell.  Troop 98 will help set up the dining area and trash boxes, keep them clean during the day, help out with the inflatable rides, and help clean up/take down at the end of the day.  We are also building and "staffing" a PIONEERING display with a Log Lift, a Rope Bridge and our Ferris Wheel. Help us show off our Scout Pioneering skills (and practice for the Philadelphia Encampment in October).

Here's what you (and your family) can do at this event:
  • Check out lots of cool planes and antique cars.  The "warbirds" are authentic World War II planes; they're big and LOUD!
  • Try out the aircraft simulator.
  • Go for an airplane ride in a small plane around Blue Bell.  It costs about $35 and lasts about 15 minutes (be sure to sign up early, because they sell out!).  It's amazing what you can see when you're not too high in the air!
  • Check out the kids activities and displays.
  • Eat yummy food, including buffalo wings prepared by various restaurants that are competing in the "Wing-Off".
NEW this year: A 1966 restored Batmobile, Redbird Full Motion Flight Simulator, AND Captain America.

Back by popular demand will be the Wing Off Challenge, where 4 local restaurants will compete for a People’s & Judge’s Choice Award. This year’s lucky participants are Michael's Italian Restaurant & DeliCarmine's Italian GrilleLee's Hoagie House Of Blue Bell, and Guppy's Good Times.

And Scouts can look and be impressive in their Scout uniform as they help out a really worthwhile event.
