Some more news
OK I talked to the owner of the Country Club in motel in Holdenville. She gave me some rates for the Fly In. She also said they are negotiable too.
I will post a link later to their site.
The rates on their site are not going to be as low as what she gave me.
Also the rooms have been remodeled since the pictures on the site were taken.

OK next I talked to the Chamber today. I will still be doing a presentation in August. But this was a preliminary meeting.
They will have a booth at the Fly In. And will be handing out suckers to the kids.
They also have a drum we can use for the raffle drawings. Sure beats the coffee can!

I will have more news later as things develop.
So anyone else get anything done for the Fly In?

Fourth of July and the Fly In
Ok the local people ( City vendors etc) and stepping up big time and wanting to participate in the Fly In.

So I want to make sure people are still going to want to come.
So if you are at this point wanting to/or planning to come speak up!! There are some I know will be there if they can.
If you are interested even if you have not posted before let me know if you want to come!

Now about the 4th. I want to get a good idea of how many want to come for this.
Just a low key thing. Flying food and fun. Not a contest or anything.

Talked to a couple of nice guys from the Civil Air Patrol. They thought the Fly In was a great idea. And are going to check about having their unit join in.

Bringing aircraft as well as having the cadets here to help with manpower.

That should bring the thread up to date. I did not move all the posts, just the ones that pertained to the Dust Bowl.

Of course anyone can post in the thread and I will keep it up to date.

Subscribed. I'm still hoping to attend, but 9/11 is my father's birthday, and he's having a huge birthday bash in his hometown of San Antonio, Texas. He is inssting I attend, but I'm still trying to weasle out of it!

This year's Dust Bowl sounds awesome, and I don't want to miss it!

One suggestion -- the donated prizes should be listed well ahead of the event -- after all, the whole purpose of the donated prizes is to get more people to attend!

LOL -- I currently only have three in stock! However, I like the idea -- let me run some numbers and see if I can afford to donate a Profile-38.

I'll be there with a truck load of planes and a coffee can full of streamers . I wish I could be of more help but I just don't have the time. I am seriously considering hooking up the camper but I will have to see how things are going closer to time. If I can get that Friday off I will camp.

The Super Cub will be coming home. Cool.

I will bet we will have some kids wanting to fly the Cub, and probably some parents also.
