what i herd was the CD from last year lost his job takes a ton of time money and effort to put a gig like the CA. JETs together,so some of the jet guys in the club requested that maybe an openhouse would be next best thing .would like to see a strong showing from the EDF guys on here to help the club make a bit of money .they are trying to make improvments to the flying wont be as good as the fly-ins that Kenny Falconer put on but it is way better than nothing. i plan to camp there for 2 to 3 days .

they might ...i have seen it done there on a sat ...we have to have a radio on at all times when we are flying .....i think you would have to park at the very end of the runway .but you better ask the club pres. i could get you his e-mail.

I think for CA jets they had a NOTAM that the AD was closed, I doubt it would be for this event, but like always....check the NOTAMS before you go...

I'm looking forward to it Rodger.

We'll be there with at least our:

SAPAC Viperjet
3 Habu 32's (2 shown)
HET L-39

The "Wild Child" L-39 was lost last summer, but it's been replaced with the Black/white/yellow one

We'll be camping on site..

There is a remark in the airport directory that radio controlled model aircraft are "in the vicinity" at L62 but no standing NOTAM. For an event of any significant attendance there really should be one. Do BARKS guys monitor 122.9?

yes as stated above we have a club radio that MUST be on and monitored during modle activity.for CA jets it was a AMA sanctioned event ,not sure if this one is as it is only a " open house" let me get with the BARKS pres......looks like we have more full scale than models
