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

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

The ice cream social is just an excuse to get together, eat some free ice cream and fly. It started as a way to get folks involved and has grown every year. Last year was a bust due to weather. Hope we can make for it this year.

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 2nd. Please DON'T wait until the last minute.

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

-Our preferred calm winds 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. I will call them and give them a heads up.

-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, liger, emotional support peacock, 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. (And I will have to clean it up)

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.



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

Axel and Alisha





I hope to have the new project out there.

Update: 1 week out.

This year the airport will be CLOSED from 12:30 to 1:00 PM. There will be a NOTAM issued. There is a reason for it but you will have to be here to find out why. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLAN ACCORDINGLY.

The weather is looking good thus far. Just a little cold

Not sure why but I have only received about 20 replies. By now we are usually around 90-100 people. Hope this is not getting to be old and folks had enough.

see you all soon!

I’d be there Axel, but I’ve got a well-known painter coming to my place at the end of the week to put color on the new airplane - and we’ll be working every day until its done. However - if he doesn’t get here and the weather is nice, I’ll need somewhere to go!
