Andy’s List March 15th

Lots of activities are coming in now. A gentle reminder of the way this Aviation Events List works: This listing is intended to be a very brief list of upcoming area activities. I only publish events sent directly to me. When you send events please list the date, location (including the airport identifier), brief description of the event, the cost – if there is a charge, and contact information – preferable an email and phone number. You can send flyers. I will not include attachments to the weekly email but I will hold the flyer until after the event and forward to anyone requesting a copy.

I received confirmation today that in honor of my birthday, the Cookson Oklahoma 24th Annual Wild Onions ‘n Eggs Breakfast Fly- In is scheduled for April 20th, 7:30-10:30. This is one of my favorite fly-ins because not only does it provide a great breakfast, it is also the unofficial kick off for the fly-in season. I will be posting more information as the time gets closer.

Mike from Joplin suggests that I tell everyone about the Socialflight app and website where you can post and view events.  It’s a free service and the more people who post events there the better the information will become. Here is the link to it:

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day.

Special thanks to those who attended the benefit chili cook-off fly-in at Harrison last weekend. The weather was nearly perfect. We had 63 aircraft on the ramp; 54 fly-ins and 9 locals. The parking lot and all available grassy space was filled with cars, motorcycles, and other land based vehicles from the many who motored in to show their support. We received $3,629.50 for the Perry’s to help defray their medical expenses.  Oh, yes, the various types of chili were great also.
