Hey guy's,
Planning a new event next year for Sept. 20-22, 2018.. That would be 2 weeks after Greater Southwest and one week before Georgia Jets... Does anyone have anything planned for that weekend in the Texas area ?? The Event will be in Breckenridge, Texas, about 80 miles west of Ft. Worth. Event will be held at the Municipal Airport which is home of a full scale Warbird restoration facility which is involved in this event. We will be given access to their facilities to watch them do what they do. Very cool place to fly our Jets as well. The Chamber of Commerce is involved as well as the City and Airport Manager. Should be a great time. They also have complete RV hook-up on site at the Airport.
More info to come, I just wanted to get the pulse of the community here to see if there were know conflicts and interest in attendance.

Cheers,
Dan Massey

There is one in Reno, Nevada that same weekend, but they are far enough apart by distance it shouldn't matter.

Planning is underway for a new Jet Event in the Pacific Northwest in 2018!

Inaugural Atomic City Afterburner is slated for May 31 through June 3, 2018 We are working to secure flying at the local airport in Richland, Washington. I believe this should be a week or so before the Princeton Canada event. Please let me know if you see any issues with the date.

More info to come as we finalize the site and dates.

Hey Guys - I am a rookie but building up my jet hours. Question: Will there be any Jet Events in Tennessee next year? Gives me a great reason to see a military friend. Planning on attending these events next year: DOGS, Route 66 (can drop my wife off in Chicago), First in Flight, Illinois Jets, and Kentucky Jets. That ought to deplete my hotel budget for the year. Thanks. Chic

Jamie,

I just booked my hotel for this year's Flying TIgers jet meet. I already sent you an email, but please save a spot with power (preferably next to my other NC buddies, Larry, Josh, Don, etc. coming down).

Looking forward to some good times again!

See you and the rest of the guys then,

Richie

Less than 2 weeks away. I need tent orders by Monday 10/9.

Let me know now if you want a reserved parking spot with power, otherwise you can just show up and parking spots will be first come first served.

A special thanks to BVM Jets who is sponsoring our awards and Boomerang RC who is sponsoring our pilots dinner.
