Morning Col Daley,

You may purchase Kero at a fuel distributor that is located appoxamatly 1 mile left as you exit the airport main road. I have used thier fuel several times now
without any issues and will certainly return for more if the need arrises. It is physically located behind one of the local gas stations along side of the road.
We can talk more when I see you next week Jeff.
Take care for now,
Frank

Hi Bob,

Unfortunately its looking like I won't have it done in time.

Thanks for the update and I'm preflighting/ staging/ decanting kero right now. I'll be departing Thursday AM for a mid-afternoon ETA to assist with site setup, etc.
Looking forward to the 7th annual of thisGREAT northeast jet event, especially the Mex. theme and will bring some fermented ingredients for Happy Hour/s.
See you soon.

I've been out to Gardner the past couple of years as a spectator, this will be my first year as a participant.
I've just finished a Boomerang XL and hopefully I'll be able to get it checked out and test flown on Friday.

Hey guys, I just got back from a string of personal appearances in LA and New York.

I'll see if my manager will squeeze in some time to get the sanction done.

You better find some time in your schedule to make an appearance. I need you to spot for me.

Eloise and my sig other will appear around 6. That's if the moon phase is right.

FAA RC Model No-Fly Zone for this Saturday in New England....11AM-7:15PM

I just received this......think you can still fly on Saturday..but talk about cutting it close...!

A new NOTAM/TFR has been issued for the area surrounding Manchester, Windham and Rochester, NH for Saturday, 8/18 from 11:00a until 7:15p EDT. The TFR is issued for security purposes to cover VIP movement in this area. Outdoor radio controlled model aircraft operations are prohibited within the 25 and 30nm circles for the specific times listed below. Control Line and Free Flight modelers should use discretion and follow the directions of local law enforcement and government officials when operating within the 10nm inner circles. Please note that TFRs are subject to change with very short notice. Check back often for the most current NOTAM/TFR information. Timely alerts are also available on the web or on your cell phone at: Twitter.com/amagov.

As I said earlier..Gardner Airport is NOT within the restricted (TFR) for Saturday.....

".....you can still fly on Saturday..but talk about cutting it close...!"

Having said that Meesh is right.....talk about just squeaking by. It looks like Gardner Airport is good to go, by not more then maybe 1-2 miles

Should be a great event!

PS - Our club (Concord Aeroguidance) Elm Brook Park Contoocook NH is almost totally shutdown Saturday by this TFR... []

Bob,

Yeah that was a typo on my part, should never have said "think" you can still fly on Saturday. We all knew as soon as we saw the TFR map(s) that Gardner Airport was OK for Saturday.

But that wasn't my main point....it was how very close the event came to being inside Saturday's TFR area...

Sorry for the miss-communication.

Have a great Event..!
