The fly-in has been expanded to include the noon meal as
well as the evening meal. Grills will be hot at both times.

Picnic tables and grills will be set up in Alan's hangar and
Kelly and Alan will making ice cream.  Bring something to

The runway is in great shape and we have plenty of space
to park your aircraft. Come fly all day and enjoy the excellent
weather we have on order.

Radios are optional but CTAF is 122.7.

Help us spread the word. Tell your friends to fly in also.

Take care . . .     Rick G.
