Goose, good to hear you're able to attend again. Flying in I presume. To any other full scale pilots, there are two runways at this airport. Runway 9-27 is open during event hours.

Larry, always good to see new faces & jets. We'll try to live up to what you've heard. Feel free to contact me by PM if you have any questions.

Goose, always good to have some folks on site over night. Please do.

Ken, yes you are so ready, because I've already received your pre-registration.

Speaking of "Pre-registrations", you only 3 1/2 weeks left to get them in. Pre-registration ends Aug. 24th.

I don't think a real 777 driver is going to having any problem getting back "on the sticks". Good to hear you're getting to attend again.

Pre-registration ends Aug. 24th.

Nick, received your check today. Thanks!

Keith, looking forward to some more of your tasty vittles. Yum, yum!

Goose, see you then.


Final reminder: This is the last week to send your pre-registration checks. Get them in the mail "TODAY" or you'll forget.

Jason, still haven't received yours. That will save you more bucks to spend at the auction.

Pre-registration form: Attachment 2261634

There is a spectator gate fee of $5 per adult for the whole weekend that goes entirely to the local airport fund.
