    Thanks, Gerard!

    I am still actively working on getting the site back up, it's just that things don't want to go my way

    Hopefully I can get it operational by this weekend since I am not going anywhere with 12-14 inches of snow coming our way.

    Yes indeed and I hope this storm doesnt setback the efforts of fixing up Jones Beach (and other areas)!!

    Just wondering what is going to occur if/ when the sequestration cuts kick in...I am guessing no Thunderbirds? (which is nothing compared to the damage that will be done to the operational readiness of the combat units)......

    Unfortunately if sequestration happens many shows/demos will be cancelled. For now there is nothing we can do but sit down and watch what happens.

    Well the CNO is already reducing the CAG presence in the gulf to one. The USS Teddy Roosevelt's return to service is being delayed as is the refueling of the Lincoln and the deployment of the Truman. It would be disappointing but not surprising at this point.

    Well, if sequestration does happen it will be interesting to see IF Jones Beach still has a show because
    the news keeps getting worse unfortunately after hearing Langley has already canceled their show !!

    Some wishful thinking but its possible only the military base airshows are being cancelled as they consider the civilian site shows "good for recruiting"!! Did read that somewhere!!
    Wonder if this will effect Fleet Week and everything that goes along with it!?
    We shall see!!

    I wonder if everything gets wiped due to the sequester, if we will still get the Canadian planes and private planes?

    Hope they'd keep it going. They only thing with private planes though is is it still worth putting on seeing that attendance was down in 2011 when there were no Thunderbirds or Blue Angels. Bring FiFi back!

    Correct, while the order for ceasing support for active-duty, reserve, and Guard units (i.e. 106th, F-22, ect;) is effective today, it doesn't go in effect for the Thunderbirds until April 1st.
