I will be there for both days and would not miss this event.

For those that have not attended in the past, this is one of the best flying fields east of the Mississippi, and the hospitality is unmatched. Attendance has grown each year, yet there aren't too many pilots so that you can fly all you want.

Looking forward to enjoying the company of the Coffee Airfoilers in Tennessee!

I agree! John and I had a wonderful time there last year. Unfortunately, he will be recovering from a knee replacement at that time this year, so won't be able to make it. Perhaps I can coerce the wife into coming with me this year

Hi Eric,
We are planning on being there again this year. I think it will be
Boyd, Haskel, Alex and me coming up from Fort Payne, AL.
I'm really expecting to reap the benefits of the drawing
table a little better this year!

Less than 4 miles as the crow flies!

When did you guys get the paved runway?

Looks nice! A lot different than when I was a member 20years ago.


Have a great event!

getting current again and looking at a partnership opportunity in a cherokee 180. Not real optomistic at this point, but if that works out I could fit a few things in there.

That would be great. Bring whatever fits and I know a guy who has a Ferat that you could fly all weekend!

We can dream, can't we? That would be great if you could make it! LOTS of hotels are within 10 miles--most within 5. Take a look at this page from our club website: http://www.cafes.net/herb/Map.htm
