Hi there group. I have just heard from Bob Timms regarding Texada fly in 2012. The date has been set for Sunday July 15 and the organisers have kindly offered to help with rides or accomodation searches. I know this is early days but it is just nice to think about the Summer. . See you all at the Big Ridge tomorrow.
The bold explorer in Sechelt quizing the weatherman to find out where the low cloud sprang from? From there to Chilliwack where there was a good turnout from our flying group. Six airplanes in for lunch on a cold but sunny day.
Because of the success of our Christmas get together lunch last year It has been suggested that we do the same this year and I have been asked to organise the event so here goes.
Same place as last year, the Big Ridge Pub on 152nd, close to king George at noon on the 18th of December. I have booked for twenty to thirty people and would like some idea of how many are coming. All are welcome, spouses, friends even Arnold.
Some of us are planning to overnight at the Texada fly in, in July. We have visited this one before and it reminds me of the great fly in we used to enjoy at Powell River. There may just be some partying happening. This is just a heads up as we have some weeks to go before the event. I hope we get a good turnout.
Our third fly out of the season was a success. A great lunch at the Pub at Quilchena. They have a new chef who is very good. Bruce brought along some friends for a first ever flight.
We will be posting a new destination most weekends now the weather is co-operating. Those of you interested in joining us should check our Blog a couple of times a week and sign up for the email notification of new posts.
This weeks fly out is to Quilchena for lunch on Saturday. Wheels up your choice. The plan is to meet there between 12 and one pm. If anyone would like to pass the message on to other groups, please do so. See you there.
Some of us are considering flying to Quilchena this coming weekend. The actual day and wheels up time has not yet been decided. We will be watching the weather before making that decision and posting details on Friday. This is a heads up for those who may be interested. If anyone has an alternative destination to consider please speak up, if not then it's Quilchena for lunch. Hope to see you all there.
Well, we had the first organised fly-out of the season this long weekend. Six airplanes and crew flew to Hanson's Field on Cortes Island on a beautiful sunny day. Jim and Diane treated us royally as usual putting on a great lunch. Most of us hiked to the beach and relaxed there for a while before the flight back. A great trip and one of many we are going to plan for this flying season. We will post some pics later.
The blog has not been used much during the winter but now I invite you all to post idea's and suggestions for flights out. It would be good to have something planned most weekends for those who wish to participate.
Small improvements this year include more visible touch-down markers, and widening the runway 20 exit near the freeway by about 20'.
As always I must recommend that pilots thinking of touching down at DairyAir for the first time. Please consider flying accompanied by a another Pilot having landed here previously. Come walk the runways first, or at least call for landing instructions if possible.
Having said that. The grass is freshly cut. I've put the coffee on.
I keep thinking I hear the Red Baron calling for landing instructions. It must be my Tinnitus.
