Some additional information!

Mac Hodges will be performing Friday AND Saturday at about 12:00 noon.
If you have not seen his exhibition in real life, come on out and see for yourself! It is awesome!

There will be door prizes for registered pilots! Very low "landing" fee- contact Sal Vezzi (info in prior post) for exact info on that.

We'll have concessions daily, and we're planning on a pilot's dinner too!

Is starting to come together, so make your arrangements to come out and have a great time!!!

More to come....

Some more info.

The landing fee is a low $20. We want everyone to come out and enjoy themselves!

We have free RV parking and camping on site. No hook ups, but porta-johns are on site. Generators are welcome.

We are having cutomized T-shirts made up for the event. Really nice!

Our field is only a mile or so off of I-95, if you are travelling, swing on in and enjoy the event for a few hours!

....more to come!

Bob

WOW! Only about a month away!
If your planning on staying at the local hotels, you may want to give them a call.
Can't wait to see what ya'll bring!
I went out and bought a small P-51 just to be able to fly that weekend!!!

Only a little over a week to go!
Hopefully some of you can make it. It's worth the price of admission (free!) to see Mac Hodges in person (Friday and Saturday around noon!)

If you want to fly, a $20 registration and AMA is required. See above posts.

See you there!

It was a great event. The pilots dinner was fantastic. The field was fantastic too.

Nice job for setting this up. I had fun flying my C-130 with the lights on in the evening after the "GREAT" Pilots Dinner...

Gunny11,
Thanks for coming! It is the pilots that really make the event.
I'd like to thank all the pilots, vendors, spectators and Mac Hodge's crew for making our 1st Annual Warbirds event a great success!!!
I'll post a few pics within the next couple of days.

P.S. For those that waited on me for their french fries, I appreciated your patience! You just can't rush a good crispy fries!
