Default Hop-Along Fly-In 2015

There's a definite lack of threads in this sub-forum. Let's fix that

My preliminary feeler indicated a lot of interest in resuming our traditional early summer fly-in gathering at the farm for grub, river floating, and possible overnight camping. It seemed some preferred June 20th but a few could only make it on the 13th.

Solution: schedule it for June 13 and keep the 20th as a "Stormy" weather rain date. I am such a genius

Mark your calendars. Saturday June 13, all-day fun at the Boyd farm, including lunch, afternoon river float, fire pit, overnight camping if anyone wants it, and breakfast for the hardy souls who do. Early arrivals get to help with ATC, Unicomm, parking and grilling.

Covered-dish sides, BYOB and desserts are a tradition for this event, but we will provide the meat and the drinks.

We have ten river tubes but you may bring your own gear if you want. Remember sun screen, bug spray, and footwear that can get wet. The river bottom is lined with rocks and pebbles which are uncomfortable to walk on barefoot. Even if the river is not your thing, there's a hot tub and I hope there will be a new pool and deck (the RV-10 project may have to wait another year) by June, so bring a bathing suit (and somebody make sure Vlad knows this is not a Speedo we are referring to.)

Those staying later in the afternoon or R.O.N. may want to bring some shooting toys; we do have a rifle and pistol range, but there will be limited times to use it (same general area as the camp sites) and NO mixing of alcohol and firearms. All safety rules must be followed at all times, just sayin'.

Looking forward to it, everybody. An R.S.V.P. would greatly help in planning, of course. Post it right here.

Planning to camp for an overnighter and leaving the speedo at home so Vlad will have full honors.
