Utah County Flying Schedule 2014

Utah Flyers Organization 2014 Calendar

At this time the rumor is that the sod farm will re-seed for the next season so we may have one more year with the present facility but it probably will be our last year there. If you are aware of other open areas where we would be able to fly please let us know.

As we have to make the transition to other flying sites, let's make some plans to have some adventures and set up a calendar so everyone will know where we are flying.


Most of our flying days will still be at a location where we can fly combat but let's plan other activities at other sites across the valley and in the hills above the valley. With a everyone's ideas and input we can find places to fly and increase the variety of things we are doing.

Please post your ideas and I will get them on the first pages so everyone will know where to look for flying events.

We have flown at many places in the valley including many many schools:
There are very few schools with open fields and no wires we haven't flown at.
The Sod Farm and surrounding fields to the South.
Lakeside Park (also called Vinyard Park)

In the past we have flown at many mountain sites including:

The top of Timpanogos
Squaw Peak Lookout
Rock Canyon Overlook
Widowmaker - Point of the mountain
West Mountain south of the lake off the observatory road
The cliffs at the mouth of Provo Canyon
The bowl east of Pleasant Grove Jr high

It's always great when you start a new thread and the Headline is sheer comedy.

Thanks Lee

Poor Lee. One wrong character, and we all jump on it. It's like tripping up stairs. Hey, everyone laughs at you, but you know what? I'm still, like, 999 for 1000, that's pretty good, right?

How do you know I didn't mean 2017? Huh??? (If this is the worse thing I did today I am doing OK.) At least I got your attention.

I wish we had a Freeze Fly still on Jan 1. It's only "flyable" about half the years due to weather, but that's one day I'd love to start a flying tradition.

When and where? Let's do it. It's on the schedule now. Notice that even though it wasn't one of the days on the schedule I quickly added it.

When you have an idea for an event, tell when and where and I will add it to the schedule. Everything doesn't need to be a planned event with food and all just a time and place and map.

I will keep the schedule up to date. I will not always be able to attend all events but I will come when I can. I will try to set up something for most Saturdays burt I will wait till about 2 weeks before to give you the chance to come up with an idea. First come first serve.

How would you like to take the wives to a club dinner at Pizza Pie Cafe which is a salad pasta pizza buffet in Provo Friday the 24th at 7PM?

Who is planning on going to St George this year? Are you taking night planes? Shall we plan a dinner while we are there?

The Freeze Fly was a Ute Club thing up at the old field they had before it was bulldozed. I'm not sure where we'd do one "off the cuff". Art Dye may be the best choice, but I haven't been there since the last snow.

The parkinglot may not even be accessible -- and almost certainly not usable as a landing spot.
