To get a grasp on how many are coming, and help the BBQ master decide how much to cook; please fill out this quick little poll.

Thanks!

Just so everyone is in the know...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is the first Southern Style Aeronca Fly-In but it’s shaping up to be a good one. It’s setup to be an easy going weekend, for everybody to come hang out and have a great time. There is no official schedule, except for BBQ and Margarita’s at my house Saturday evening (50yds from the airport). Some things to know…..

Location: Peachstate Aerodrome (GA2)
2400x100 Turf marked with cones and tires, Runway’s 13-31 with a slight dip in the middle. RW31 has a displaced threshold for (use full length at your discretion and with caution; you can’t see the other end except from the displaced threshold on.) The runway has a bit of washboard to it in the middle that can get a little rough.

Registration Fee:
Yep, there sure is. Until I win the lotto, you guys will have to help me out.
$30 per person; that helps cover the Saturday Evening BBQ and all the extra stuff like port-a-crappers.

What to Bring:
Tie-Down’s
Sunscreen
Camera
A folding Chair can come in handy
A great Attitude and stories to tell

Fuel:
Is located on the field. Last I saw, fuel was $3.40/gal but that can change between now and then. Other options are; Griffin (6A2) 5 miles East; Thomaston (OPN) 15miles South; and Tara (4A7) 10miles North.

Food:
There is a restraunt located on site; www.barnstormersgrill.com You are on your own for the weekend EXCEPT for the Saturday Evening BBQ and Margarita’s. I will have a cooler stashed by the registration tent with some water in it through the weekend. I’ll try to have them open up early on Sunday for breakfast, or get the local EAA to do up coffee, pancakes sausage etc…
Saturday Evening 6pm – BBQ and Margarita’s and all the other good Southern Humidity you can stand will be at my house; 50 yards from the airport.

Shelter:
Good ‘Ol fashion camping. I’ve got a shower at my house (50yrds from the airport) for those interested. For the likes of David Johnson and other discernable characters, I have a hose out back to make you feel at home. But if that’s not your thing… several hotels are located about 6 miles away in Griffin.

Best Western
Howard Johnson Inn
Comfort Inn
Days Inn
Super 8

Transportation:
We are working on getting a loaner van/bus from the Church to shuttle folks to and from the hotels and airport. If this falls through; we’ve got enough vehicles to cover.
But if you are Maverick and like to go solo…
Economy Rent-A-Car 770-227-5966
Enterprise Rent-A-Car 770-223-2830

Things to Do:
If you’re interested in touring the local area; Peachstree City, FFC is 15 miles away and home to Aircraft Spruce and Specialty; Atlanta Motor Speedway is about 10 miles to the North, (Mark Lamon will be happy to take your airplane around the track...) For a pleasant flight and sight seeing; river-run the Flint River into the Pine Mountains. It’s about an hour round-trip more or less. If you ever wanted to fly a Stearman, J-3 or need a BFR, Tim Preston is the resident CFI and can set you up. www.flytailwheel.com/Index.htm


Here you see the general layout of the airport. We'll try to fill up the parking on the far right of the picture first, since it's the smoothest. And the RED arrows show the general taxi routes.

One thing I forgot to mention... Runway 13 is a RIGHT pattern.

Nathan,
It looks like Judy and I will be there. I'm going to try to be in ATL mid week before the show. See you there.

Paul, did you get the POH emailed last nite? If you want to look at the 7HC, we are about 2 hrs north of Nathan. We will be driving to the fly in. David J.

David,
Yes I did receive the manual. I'm trying to get to ATL on Tuesday before the Fly-in. If it's not a bother I would like to spend a day North in your area so I can look at the 7HC. Let me know if that works for your schedule. I'll confirm as we get closer to the date. This pass travel can be tricky.

Paul, As long as you don't bring Nathan north of ATL. Kinda need to follow the rules.......May not be able to spend a whole day with you, but can probably get Mr. Thompson to escort you around the balance of the time. Depends how much work comes into our body shop. You need to see his shop/junkpile anyway. I will be working pretty hard so I can be off most of Friday to go down south. We will make something work, come on out. Keep us up to date. David J.

I'm not allowed north of the Mason-Dixon line anymore... or is it the Donna Dixon line?

YES! Do you want me to bring the joiner down when I come in a few weeks? I will leave it with you till you get done or you cut your fingers again. Whichever comes first. What will you need help with Friday? Didn't know what to plan on. I guess you saw I was planning on coming down as early Friday as I can. May be a day for Paul to come up here and get the Grand Tour. If you are free I will get the waiver approved so you can come too. David J.

When I grow up I want to be just like Tater. But I can't figure how to do both at the same time..........David J.

David,
I should be there Tuesday afternoon. I planned to head north for a couple of days in your neck of the woods. If Nathan needs a hand during the week count me in!
