Re: Spring Fling


Hi Jay?
Thank you to you, Fish & Marstall for chiming in.
I’m thinkin out loud perhaps the weekends before or after Memorial Day.
I’ll get w/ the airport soon and begin to fill in some blanks.
TTY all later.

So glad to hear Mike is OK.

Hello everyone,
I've been talking to Jerry about the possibility of hosting in Terre Haute, IN. Jerry has flown to HUF and is familiar with the facility there. I also know Sam and Terry have been there too.
There are a few logistics to work through but wondering from y'all what the interest would be in a Midwest venue.
Take a look at KHUF and let me know your thoughts.
If generally positive I'll look into it and get back.
Thanks, Keith

I was recently reminded that there is not a Spring Fling planned for this Spring. Kevin has been gracious enough to pick up the ball for FOD and therefore won&#8217;t be hosting Spring Fling this year.

It would be a terrible thing not to have a Spring Fling; it's a long-time tradition that I believe began with Kevin Boddiker 10 years or so ago. Nancy and I, in the past, have investigated the possibility of having either SF or FOD in or near Asheville, NC. Each time we find that the local environment (Western NC, Northern SC and Eastern TN) does not fit the bill. The bigger airports are towered and some have commercial airlines ( Asheville &#8211; 7, plus landing fees for non-locals) which greatly limits spontaneous fights.

The smaller non-towered airports that would be appropriate are in the boondocks; several miles from motels, restaurants and transportation. Plus they don&#8217;t have hangars for our Q&#8217;s or anyplace to gather.

From what Kevin tells me, there isn&#8217;t much to do as far as preparation &#8211; give him a call.
I would really like to see you folks this spring. Jerry Marstall
