Re: Fly in

This airstrip is owned by the town and the event was funded by this small town of two hundred people. It is a grass strip but I wonder how many fields/towns might do the same if asked.

How fantastic Paul. Wish there were that sort of thing in the UK.

How does the financial side of it work?
Who foots the bill, and why?
I assume that there is no landing fee to subsidize it

Attended a great little fly in at 76V this weekend. Free breakfast,
free lunch, prizes and can you believe it $50.00 bucks gas money for
every pilot that showed up with a plane. Hope they don't find out
that we would pay $50.00 to come down to the grass strip fly in like
this. Flour bombing and balloon popping contest and a toy drop for
the kids.

Glendo is a tiny town of a few hundred people and owns the airport.

13 planes, a powered paraglider and one hot air balloon showed up.
Don't you know I will be going back next year. Oh yes, and about 5
nice RC planes. About 200 people just came to enjoy the day.
