Re: 2014 FOD
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Ever sence Spud invented Field of Dreams (after the GIG - Grazing in the Grass with the EZ boys in KS) in Kansas; the dates for FOD was carefully set not to interfear with the CSA Rough River Fly-in. ... at which one year three Q-1's ( Terry Crouch, Keith Welsh, and Roy Shannon ) flew-in along with N-202SH ... from the photos, I remember there was a short guy from Ashville NC showed up with his lovely wife in a freshly panted Beech.
These two fly-ins (Rough River being the largest canard fly-in in the country) have always co-existed no closer than a week apart.
I asked Terry Schurbert (editor of the CSA newasletter) of CSA's 2014 and 2015 dates which are listed below.
These are hard to change since the field is in high demand for fly-ins of various marks ... I know for a fact the lodge reseverations are full three years in advance. (usually 60 to 100 planes show up each year despite the weather) But thereare also cabins in the park as well as motels across the street. ... I ve stayed in both.
Therefore, wouldnt it be nice to schedule the 2014 FOD for the weekends of Sept 19, 20 & 21st ... or
Oct 3rd, 4th & 5th ?
I think Oct would give the best shot at clear weather, but the third weekend in September would be fine as well.
So guys, which weekend would be best for the Field of Dreams, tandum wing get together?
I look forward to hearing from yall (you-all).
... and like Alan alway says ...
All The Best
