1. The EAA Chapter 1114 Homecoming Picnic promises to be a huge fun celebration for Bobby Cox, the Cox Airport, EAA 1114 Founders, Past Officers and Volunteers. Awards, digital video interviews and more.

Jack Philips, Smith Mountain Lake Airport's famous Bedford Landings B&B is planning on flying in his Pietenpol Air Camper. Van's Aircraft, Allegro, perhaps, Just and Zenith Aircraft will be flying in demonstrators. Southern pig roast (hopefully), Counter Clockwise Bluegrass Band will be providing a great southern strings sounds to remind us of the '70's themed Southern hospitality and fun of the wonderful flying days at Cox Airport. 

For those not responded to Evite, the Chapter and Cox Family need you to look at the Evite sent to your email and confirm your attendance to enable  count for planning and food preparation purposes.

2. Further, please read the email to Bobby Cox's family below that are working hard to revive information, photos, videos about the Cox Hawk. Most of historic videos are from the years of video cameras and will be converted to digital formats. Also, Bobby's Grandson, Robert Howington is a web developing expert and is helping build out Bobby's website. 

There is a link in the email below, if you wanted to see The Cox Hawk Assembly Book, take a look.  If you have any Cox Hawk specific information, photosvideos or anything for that matter that relates to Bobby Cox, Cox Airport, please share it.

Here is a scanned copy of Bobby Cox's, Cox Hawk Assembly Book with some narrative, fabulous pictures of assembly in process and even more amazing pictures of family and friends of old. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1t36Gtz9Y0FTaeIORsUoGAUfPUR9HmeHx.

Here are my thoughts: To get some key family members to sit with Bobby Cox and capture a ton more detail about everything going into this award winning aircraft, and add to this legendary accomplishment for posterity and make it a much easier and fun read digitally, online and perhaps print a few beautiful copies for family, for the EAA National Archives, etc. 

Next, Robert Howington, in time, new baby expecting, 60-hour work week, and so much more is going to help me upload this book to an amazing Bobby Cox website digitally. And for a finishing touch or two, get some of the videos taken years back during construction, static engine, taxi and flight tests inserted into the digital book so they can be seen as a person reads through it. 

And last, but not least interview Bobby Cox, family and friends about the Cox Hawk and likewise append to the final online document. Sound like fun?"

3. Thank you for the ten people contributing Bobby Cox tributes/stories so far. See the stories your friends have written along with some pictures here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vCXv29HTdSl5NakWCtaW-XyGLS_EsmfR
