Road Trip - E-Jets Of The West in Tucson


Calling all you jet jockeys, it's time for another GQF road trip! Just like we did last July up to Flagstaff and in October to FEAR, it's time for GQF to hit the road again and "invade" another fly-in.

This time, it will be E-Jets Of The West to be held April 9-10 (Friday and Saturday only) at the TIMPA field just west of town. This is the same location as the Tucson Shootout. If you've never been to this field, it's just like the AMA field (paved runway, covered pits, electricity, running water) except no ditches on the ends and LOTS of open flying space!

This is the inaugural event and it is being put on by Clay & Debbie Sherrow. They always put on a great show at the regular Tucson Jet Rally, and it promises to be a nice relaxing 2 days of flying just EDFs. I plan to be there with a few planes, plus I will have a vendor table as well to promote my Nico Hobbies stuff. Team EJF will be there as well.

There's plenty of room to set up camp (but no RV hookups), so let's get another group of guys together, head down to Tucson for the weekend, and sit around the campfire at night singing "At the GQF!"

But of course! Beer and brats, doesn't get any better.

(Oh, and they like to have golf cart races up and down the runway at night. We should fit right in! )

For all of you aspiring Jet-Jocks, it will be a great place to see some awesome planes and pilots throwing it all out... all with no Turbine guys complaining!

Sounds like just another excuse for a bunch of hooligans to fly fast planes, drink beer, and sing loud boisterous songs.

$20 Pre-reg before April 2nd, $25 after that. A very good price for what is shaping up to be a top-notch show!

Well, seeing as it's only Friday and Saturday, most of us will be heading home Saturday afternoon.

You need to come Friday night.

I think I'm going to go down Thursday night. Still undecided on that. But definitely camping out Friday night.
