Just FYI, We mowed and trimmed today. The adjacent grass runway is 50' x 500' but kind of rough due to mother nature and the extremely dry summer and the petromat runway is due to be replaced later in the month - ragged in the edges but smooth in the mid parts and useable.

The weather should be good and we have our fingers crossed as we have been either blown out or rained out of two events this summer.

Well the weather is not optimal but the kids still need presents for Christmas so the flyin is still ON. We WILL have coffee about 9:30 and lunch. So dress warm and bring a toy.
We may alter the raffle so that if you fly you get a prize.

Even if you cannot fly tomorrow, please come by, have a cup of coffee and drop off your toy. Our event provides a large number of the toys that are collected each year by the city of grapevine. We're counting on y'all.
