Cambridge Wings & Wheels Event Grounded Without Ride-Alongs

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Plans are still up in the air as Dorchester County scrambles to organize its annual Wings & Wheels event. Earlier this week, organizers said they could not secure a number of flyover events for people to ride-along in.

Branden Spear is one of thousands, who says he and his family look forward to the event each year. He says the news is disappointing.

"It's definitely going to be a loss of people this year and definitely not good for Cambridge," Spear said. "Other neighboring cities have the same event and seem to have a lot more to offer than we do, and I think it's only fair that we offer the same if not better."

Without the county's support to insure the event at $3 million, time to saving the event is running out The county says it's still working to get the ride-along's back.

Organizer Ted Bryant says it's heartbreaking to see the event flyers being passed around with the best parts of the show crossed out.

"That's the heart of it right there. So if we can get that to go through, we'll be good," Bryant said. "It's all in the works right now. A few of the county council members are on board already and they realize that this is a good event for the county and it needs to go on."

WBOC spoke with a number of county council members who say they would try to reach a conclusion for the Wings & Wheels event Tuesday evening at the county council meeting.
