Default 9th annual ice cream social, Inyokern, CA: 11th March

The 9th annual ice cream social will be held at Inyokern, CA airport on March 11th from 1100-1400.

The ice cream social is just an excuse to get together, eat some free ice cream and fly.

If you would like to attend, please email me at axel_alvarez "at" hotmail "dot" com Use "Ice cream social" on the subject line of the email for spam filter reasons. If not, it will end up in the "trash/recycling bin" and I won't know you are coming. The head count will be used to figure out how much supplies my wife and I need to buy. All I need is your name and the number of people attending by March 3rd.

-The airport's web site is http://inyokernairport.com/

-Our preferred runway is 33.

-Runway 20 is the only runway with non-standard traffic (right pattern).

-Click 3 times on 122.8 for AWOS info.

-R-2506 is closed on the weekends. You can contact Joshua Approach on 133.65 if you wish to request flight following and restricted area over flight.

-When you are in the pattern, stay West of Highway 395.

-If you are coming from the West you can follow the red route. If you are coming from the North/East, you can follow the blue route.


Some things to remember if you are not familiar with airport operations.
-You are responsible for yourself, kids, family, etc. NO EXEPTIONS! You are there at your own risk, be vigilant around the flight line.

-Aircraft are the greatest invention of mankind however, they can also be dangerous. Approach every aircraft as if it were "ON". An encounter with a turning prop or intake can yield very bad injuries.

-DO NOT touch an aircraft unless you have the permission of the owner/pilot.

-Please leave your pets at home. No need to have your dog, cat, lizard, liger, etc. around each other, food or aircraft. If you MUST bring your pet, please have it on a leash (especially if it is a liger).

-Please make sure you dispose of your trash. If you don't, it could potentially do damage to aircraft engines/props.

Location
same as last year. The picture below depicts the area. It is the IYK terminal building. When you come off runway 33 or 02 on Taxiway B3, it is the building right ahead. BTW, the location is inside a red restricted area. It is NO LONGER active. That being said, this is probably the last year we can use the facility as an airline is scheduled to return this year.




Hope to see you and your family there. The only thing better than ice cream is free ice cream.

Axel and Alisha

Additional info:
I am working on a fuel discount. TBD at this point.

Update:

This year we will have cupcakes again and to-go boxes in addition to the ice cream.

I am working on gas prices however, we will have to wait until the next load of fuel is bought before I can get a final price.

About 3 weeks out. get the RSVPs in. Thanks.

Default Ice cream

Axel, Alisha,

Skip and I are coming. This will be our first ice cream social and we're looking forward to it. I thought I replied when you first posted, glad I checked in and saw I had not. Sorry 'bout that.

Cathy

One week out.

Awesome Cathy.

Just worked out the gas price. It will be $4.09 per gal.

On a different note. If you sent me an email about attending, thank you. This year for some reason the emails have been minimal. I have about 20 people called in thus far. If you are coming out, please let up know so we can buy enough supplies. Thank you.
