I just got off the phone with Gary to confirm May 19-20-21 for this year.
I've been getting questions about the dates so I wanted to get this out there so we can all make plans.
Look at the field pic.below if you don't already have them you can enter in the field address to get the GPS coordinates.There will be a 35.00 dollar flying fee no pre registration required.You are welcome to show up on Thursday.
We are all so lucky to know a guy like Gary that is so generous with his field. Anyone that has been there knows it's like flying off putting turf with plenty of room to fly.The Weaver field has earned the reputation for a fun relaxed good time without all the hype.
There will be noon time demos for all levels of pilots who want to on Friday and Saturday with a pa so bring your own music or we will have a lot to choose from.We will have a acrobatic auto contest and a spot auto contest for those who want to enter.
Watch out for the sprinkler heads when you pull in.
