We had 46 registered pilots last year, this year should be even bigger.

We all had a lot of fun.

Thanks,

Don

I went to the first of these I think. I remember Curtis Youngblood was flying. Dang that was quite a while ago. Odd because I was just discussing this with my friend the other day and then I run across this. Count me in.

Hopefully there is more night flying then there was at Las Vegas fun fly.

Fri Night they kept turning the lights off so no one could fly.

I also forgot to mention that our runway and pit areas are being resurfaced tomorrow.

The field will be looking great this year for our event.

That isn't that bad. If I lived in the Continental US I would be driving to funflys all the time. I am going to a funfly that same weekend but I have to fly for 12 hours. Then I will drive with a friend all night for 7 hours. Sucks but worth it.
