Anybody going to OK18 Taildragger Fly-in in Oklahoma?

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”.  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)  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!

OK18 Taildragger Fly-in

OK18 Grande Isle Airport, Adair, Oklahoma

May 26 thru the 29, 2011

Hosted by Mike & Patty Sizemore

Camping, Barbecue, Poker run, and lots of flying!

Word is, they’re going to have a special camping spot for the lady taildraggers!

Poker Run:

Everyone will all leave OK18 Sat morning and meet at Ketchum airport 1K8 for fuel, breakfast, short field demonstration and Poker Run briefing.

1st stop is Mel & Don Amos Cherokee Strip 1AR5 near Siloam Springs – I need to OK this with Don & Mel. (Ladies, this is home of lady taildragger pilot Melanie Amos!!)

2nd stop is Cookson 44M where when we land will be a Spot Landing contest and they will have lunch for us, they have fuel available.

3rd stop is Whitehorn Cove OL20

4th stop is Clu & Buster Colvin’s Stearmans Roost 50K3

Then we do a touch and go at Ketchum airport to add activity to their Air
Fest Day, or we may make this the 5th stop for the 5th card

Then back to OK18

    I wish, maybe someday I will be able to join in the fun. Have a great time for me and enjoy the open sky.
    God Bless

    Cathy, looks like I’m going to get to meet you & Steve! I’ve heard so many great things about OK18 I’ve got to get there. I’m planning on flying my new Rans over and hope to get there Friday; Saturday if I get hung up in Indy. Sure hope to see lots of other lady taildraggers there – what a great opportunity for us all!!

    Steve and I will be at OK18. Hopefully we will have all 3 kids with us too. This is absolutely one of the greatest fly-ins. Mike and Patty Sisemore are the perfect hosts.

    Sounds like a fun time… but I’ll bet the price of gas and dodging thunderstorms will keep me from venturing out there with the Waco! 🙁 I hope you all get a group together and have a blast!!
