the grass on the side of the taxiway will be used for pilots and some vendors. there is grass straight out from the runway that has been used in the past although i am not sure of its current condition. we will keep an eye on it, but i dont anticipate it being an issue. one thing to note...this is a full scale private airport so there are some landing lights. we will cone them appropriately so people like pablo, bob b, and jack can aim for them

Why don't we make it more fun and add points to each cone based on expected difficult hitting them!

I see from the Google Earth search that there is plenty of grass for Bungee AC. I presume the launching will be done to the left or right of the flight stand. But landing will still be a little tricky as the runway is probably 75' wide and that would make landing about 100' away from the pilots station. Solution.......roll out 400' of sod on the runway every hour for bungee'ers to land on. Then just roll it up at the end of the hour

Here is my contribution from 2010. A couple guys next to our tent assembled 2 jets and had Pablo what I believe flew the maiden on this one.

Hope not, it's against the AMA safety code. No insurance if anything bad happens.
