From High Sierra jets:

The preliminary plan as of today is this:

Setting a Fall date of September 13-16
These dates coincide with the Reno Air Races that run September 13-17
The RRCC field is outside of the controlled airspace of the air races, so that is not an issue.
I still have the donations from the places listed above and may be able to get some more before the event.
The weather at this time is usually warm in the afternoons with a decent breeze, and nice calm cool mornings so the density altitude will be good for most of the day.
Plan to visit the Reno Air Races on the 17th. That is GOLD race day when it's break it or win. If you choose not to leave or visit the air races you can still fly on Sunday too.
As before there is dry camping on site, which is recommended, and I'm sure there will be people there on Sunday that can watch your belongings if you choose to attend the Races on Sunday. I may even spring for a day of private security for Sunday for people to attend the races if enough people are showing up.
Overall pretty much the same plan as before, and if I can get enough people registering by email to highsierrajets@gmail.com I can see about some possible catering. Landing fee will $20.00 for all 4 days when you get there.
For those who wish to stay in a hotel/motel, www.booking.com allows you to do free cancellations, and it is advisable to book ASAP
I am going to run this through the club at the meeting tomorrow night so expect updates on Thursday.

This was talked about at the RRCC club meeting last night and as of now is the plan.

We are looking at an impromptu fun fly at the RRCC field for May 11-13 since High Sierra Jets! is cancelled due to weather. This will not be a jet only event, but will be a fun fly. All jets are accepted and encouraged. Dry camping on site is allowed. So bring something to fly, and have a good time. The mornings will be nice for jet flying, but the afternoons may be a little to warm, and create high density altitude. Temperatures will be in the 70's. This will be a fun event.

Hi Rich
Please remove the Fort Bend Jet Event from your list of events. Fort Bend is not having a jet rally this year. Thanks in advance!

Default High sierra jets!

It's only a few months away!!! Make plans now to come to High Sierra Jets! September 13-16 2017.

With the unfortunate cancelling of Fresno, which I was looking forward to, head on up to Reno in September instead.

Be sure to bring some extra money to visit the Reno National Championship Air Races that same weekend, with the Gold races for all the money on Sunday the 17th.
The Indian colony plans to have the road improved (graded dirt) by the time the event happens so it should be smooth sailing all the way to the field.
There will be dry camping allowed on site, and our permit allows for cocktails after each days activities, so bring those too. Remember to drink responsibly as the permit can be revoked if anyone gets out of hand.
Please follow all the speed limits posted on the reservation land starting near the high school on the road out. The club field in now on Indian Colony land.

Feel free to check this thread for more information, or contact highsierrajets@gmail.com with any questions.

I have received discount coupons and items from various companies in the jet community, and hope that more will roll in by the event.

Special thanks to the early donors:
Kingtech Turbines/Pacific RC jets
Fly Eagle jets
RTL fasteners
Chief Aircraft
Ultimate jets
Eagle Tree Systems
Smart Fly
HC&M Hobbies
Pulse batteries
AirBeast Products
and more to come....

Stay Tuned__________
