Help!
Triple Tree Dates. ******ALERT*****

OK Guys

After the MidSouth last year the TTA asked us to come back. They really liked us as we were zero effort for them.

If you have never been there ask the guys who came to this event for MidSouth. It is first class. Even the restrooms have granite counter tops. Its just a great place.

So here is the problem. MidSouth is in Louisville this year so that weekend is out. I would not step on the MidSouth toes as this is a great event that should continue.

The next logical date would be July 4th weekend. I was thinking 2 days of ALES and 2 days of TD. So possible July 3-4-5-6. I could do 1 day of ALES if it helps attendence.

I have to get approval from TTA but I think they will go for it. Their calender is also pretty full so its tuff. I would move it up some but My son is getting married in June.

Thoughts? Just looking for guidance. Any other dates you guys think might work. Just throwing this out now.

The one bad thing is it will probably be hot. But it is the south and its a warm up for the NATS.

Comment here guys

Update:

I found out this weekend that July 4th weekend is NOT available as the field is being used for a full scale tire testing of some kind. I asked for Labor Day but this is not avalible either as the arriving aircraft for the full scale fly inn will start the following wed. The month of August is pretty free. I'm trying to go to the NATS so the beginning is out for me. I'm gonna shoot for something later in the month.

Very tempting since I have that week off. Although in general that was the problem with the NATS last year - lots of folks have family reunions around the 4th of July weekend. Speaking for myself, I'd bring the family along this time. Triple Tree is so nice it's a worthy vacation destination!

Anytime you can get for us to fly at TTA is good.!

From my perspective, keep them as single day contests - I can arrive on the 3rd., but if others can be there earlier why not?

I'm in. It was a great time last year and camping was the way to go.

I assume you will need winches.

I'm pretty sure Noah and I would be game on for TD on the sat/sun, which I think is the 5th and 6th

Apparently, everyone else is familiar with this event. My first question, however, is: Where is the event?
