SAWEEET!

We got a gaggle of guys coming down from Colorado. Between Larry, Clark, JP, and myself we are bringing 13 jets! And there should be 4-6 more guys from Colorado there who will average another 2-3 jets per person...

CAN'T WAIT!

Fuel is tough to get near Speedworld so I would recommend bringing as much as you can. Power is available for charging and such, but not for RV Parking. We have our own Flightline Cafe so food is not a concern. The traditional Saturday evening Steak/Chicken meal is a real gathering (hopefully; someone will bring some green bottles for Tam). If you are a night person bring a light jacket as it gets in the 50's here at night.

Fuel update: We've just located a bulk source for Industrial Kero (Red dye). We can have 50-60 gallons on site for those who don't mind using it. Please bring your own Turbine Oil.

All the Jet pilots at Sun Valley use the Red Dye kero from Supreme Oil. In 3 years no problems. They just received a fresh load and the price went up to 4.95 a gallon.[] We were paying 3.50 last year.

Paul,
I concur. Prior to moving to Surprise I bought the bulk (red) in Casa Grande for about the same price..........only drawback; if you get it on your clothing, it's permanent.
