Might be road tripping to this one.

Where's the best place to look for a hotel around there?

Let’s have a jet meet! We are a week away from the start of Tiger Meet 2020. Weather outlook below ... winds expected to be light.



If you haven’t contacted me to reserve a powered parking spot, please do so. You are also welcome to just show up and we will get you parked on a first come, first served basis. We have plenty of parking at the facility ... just a limited number of powered parking spots.

I look forward to seeing everyone next week! Safe travels!

Hey Jamie,
Just a couple of questions...….. Looking at your thread, I think folks are going way too easy on you as a CD !!!

Can I bring my dog.
Can we camp.
Is there sewage pick up?
Can I park beside ^$^%#$%# and his crew
Are campers allowed?
Is there Jet "A", Kero or Diesel on site?
Do you have my T-shirt size?
Do the neighbors like us?
What kind of chilli ya'll serving on the hot dogs?
Do you know if Josh Bunn will be there?
Do I need my AMA to be current?
Is the weather really going to be great or what?
Do you think I should wear tennis shoes or boots to fly in?
Who REALLY killed J.R on the show Dallas?
Do you watch TicTok videos yet.
Do you think my jet is pretty?
Are we allowed to do big loops and flippy floppy things when we fly?
If I crash, are you going to report it to my wife? Hmmm,,, that reminds me. Don't you owe me some money??
Can we get a group together to do karaoke the Mexican restaurant?


Well,,,,That's it for now. I think,,,,,,,? Oh,,,forgot one. Is it true that Steve Hester is only bring 3 people from the Fayetteville area,,,counting himself? That's really disappointing! I mean,,,,,Josh cant even come now, and we're STILL bringing a convoy of guys from the eastern NC division to see you guys! Gonna have to have a sit down talk with that guy.



BS aside,,,, Looking forward to it. Will be awesome to see a lot of the jet community at an event again. See ya soon.

Can I bring my dog. It is encouraged. I like dogs better than most people.
Can we camp. As long as you sing camp fire songs.
Is there sewage pick up? Dump station on site!
Can I park beside ^$^%#$%# and his crew? You ARE ^$^%#$%#!
Are campers allowed? If they can make it here. If not, they’ll have to ask the people where they break down.
Is there Jet "A", Kero or Diesel on site? Yes ... what everyone brings for themselves.
Do you have my T-shirt size? XS short, petite ... right??
Do the neighbors like us? Love us.
What kind of chilli ya'll serving on the hot dogs? Hot dog chili
Do you know if Josh Bunn will be there? Josh “Hot Dog” Bunn is apparently afraid of crossing the SC border.
Do I need my AMA to be current? Only if you want to fly.
Is the weather really going to be great or what? It’s a definite maybe but possibly not but probably so.
Do you think I should wear tennis shoes or boots to fly in? You’ll be in SC ... Cowboy Boots are encouraged.
Who REALLY killed J.R on the show Dallas? Watch it on Netflix!
Do you watch TicTok videos yet. I’m too old to know what that is.
Do you think my jet is pretty? In the air they are all pretty.
Are we allowed to do big loops and flippy floppy things when we fly? Whifferdills and whatnots are preferred.
If I crash, are you going to report it to my wife? Hmmm,,, that reminds me. Don't you owe me some money?? If you don’t show up I’ll tell Jacqci what your jets cost. Wait ... she knows already!
Can we get a group together to do karaoke the Mexican restaurant? If I get to pick the songs!


Well,,,,That's it for now. I think,,,,,,,? Oh,,,forgot one. Is it true that Steve Hester is only bring 3 people from the Fayetteville area,,,counting himself? That's really disappointing! I mean,,,,,Josh cant even come now, and we're STILL bringing a convoy of guys from the eastern NC division to see you guys! Gonna have to have a sit down talk with that guy. We’d be happy just to have Steve from Fayette-nam...others are a bonus!
