are grounded in Morgan County, Indiana by
low clouds and strong winds. But we can lift our spirits by picturing
escape from Boone County's grip. In Brooke's words:
Marie and Laurie pulled
open the pen doors and the birds
and followed it in a tight circle around the field, climbing higher
and higher in an effort to clear the surrounding trees. Then, as
we began another circuit to gain the necessary altitude, Bev, dressed
as the Swamp Monster, ran out onto the field at exactly
the right moment to scare the low flying stragglers. This gave them
just enough incentive to stay with the trike and forget about returning
to the pen. The fact is, a good launch is the key to a good flight.
North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in
cooperation with the Whooping
