Super Bowl Potluck (February 2007)

Our chapter was contacted by the US Correspondent for Swiss National Television. They were doing a story on Swiss people who chose not to have children. Because there was no organization in Switzerland like No Kidding!, they wanted to do a piece on No Kidding! in the US as part of the larger story. The Correspondent, Sebastien, asked if he could cover our Super Bowl Pot Luck Dinner. Sebastien interviewed 5 current members before the party began. Once the game started, his camerman filmed our group watching the game and enjoying the party. Thank you Claire and Eric for hosting such a wonderful party and for allowing the Swiss Television team to join us.

Hang Gliding (August 2004)


After 3 1/2 years of cancellations, this determined trio finally took to the skies.
Lynn, Steve and Mitch each took a tandem flight at 2500 ft at Highland Aerosports on the Eastern Shore.


Since there are no mountains on the Eastern Shore, the gliders are towed to gliding altitude by an ultralight plane.


Mitch gets instructions before the flight.
