Gals, I don’t normally put these invitations on the Home page but we all might want to seriously consider meeting at this fly-in. I’ve never been but Diana Votaw (Sport Cub) says “absolutely fabulous flyin- wonderful group of people, fabulous hosts, great time”. Â Leave your comments and we’ll see who might be able to get there!!
I got a note from Bill Tracy saying he talked to Mike Sizemore (owner OK18) Â and the lady taildraggers have a special invitation to this grass strip flyin! What a great event to kick off our summer flying. Anyone already planning on going? Seems like a nice spot for a bunch of us to meet up!
