*** (depending on how many people attend). 1st RSVP's have priority.***
Donation bucket will be easy to find if you want to help pay for expences.
Warning: The grass runway north end has a powerline. If landing to the south, it can be hard to see. Eaglesnest is making a displaced threshold for the event.
Air Frequency at FD44 is 123.15 which will be monitored by airboss (Doug)
Use Ground Frequencty 123.45. Gound crew will help guide to parking spot. Don't talk a lot on these frequencies, keep it simple stupid!
Bomb drop contest: Volunteers needed to judge and figure out prize. (anyone have some grapefruit or oranges that we could use for this??)
See below pictures to see what to expect. This is a private fly-in and your aircraft operations are at your own risk. If you don't accept this, don't come.
Flying: Suggest (within 20 miles or more) to listen on the frequency 123.15. Annouce where you are at 10 miles out and then again at 5 miles. If the frequency is congested, stay away and delay until it frees up. There isn't a need for everyone to arrive at exactly the same time.
Parking: Seaplanes land on water and either park on beach on NW, N, or NE shore, or if you want to ramp, use wheels to go up the ramp and park. Follow directions from ground people on were to park. (see pictures of parking in past years) Overflow is on east side of Runway about midfield in lot. We may need some amphibs to park on the beach, so bring tiedown stuff like anchor.
Updates will be posted here on this page, so check back at this page on the day of event as I may post anything pertinent on here.
