Long range weather forecast is looking pretty good!

Matthew left his mark, but we'll be in good shape for the jet meet next week.

If you've been on the fence, let me know ... only a few powered parking spots on the main flight line are left. There are also spots with no power on the main flight line plus powered spots on the 2nd flight line.

Small jets (eg. inexpensive foamies) and prop planes can be flown on our 2nd flight line which is behind and parallel to the main flight line. Bring what you want to fly!

Jamie and the gang!
Thanks for a great weekend. Wind was a little blustery at times, but, the facility is great.
We'll definitely be back.

I second that - thanks to all who put this on.

This is a fun, laid-back event at a *really* nice grass field. The runway is long, wide, smooth and very well kept. In a lot of ways, I like grass better than hard-surface - its definitely more forgiving. If you haven't been before, give this event a try...
