3rd Annual Wilson Fall Fun Fly (WF3)


The third annual Wilson Fall Fun Fly (WF3) will be held the weekend of Fri Oct 6th thru Sun Oct 8th.

As in the past, this is just a fun fly. No entrance fee. No t-shirt. No organization. The WF3 is a non-event open to everyone who loves flying at Wilson, and at least for us out-of-staters, an excuse to come back to central Kansas and fly the wonderful slopes around Wilson more than once a year.

Come one! Come all! The more, the merrier.

Post your intentions on this thread.

'looking forward to flyin' with you at Wilson again in the fall.

... Greg

(As in the past, I'll probably arrive either the Monday or Tuesday before the weekend and in time for some late afternoon / evening flying. Then fly thru the week and head back to Colorado on Sunday, Oct 8th.)

In the spirit of pics, I've been putting some new bling on old planes...

I am looking forward to being there with a bunch of old planes and maybe a new one or two.

Sorry no pics, you've already seen my old beat up planes and my new ones aren't built yet.

There seems to be a strong undercurrent to move this year's WF3 to the weekend before: Sept 29th - Oct 1st. I'm neutral, as I feel the more the merrier. What are your thoughts?

Mike, Todd, Chance and myself vote for this earlier date. I'm on the road the week prior and will save a lot of driving to combine with "Nashbro"

hope to see you'all soon,

There is an aerotow in Wichita the on the 5th to the 8th of October, (the current weekend we are scheduled). We might pick up one or two by moving it a week earlier, but no guarantees.

You are looking at changing the date within a month of the scheduled event?

Change the date of WF3? Possibly. It depends on which week/weekend works best for the most pilots. WF3 is just a "non-event" fun fly. A gathering of slope junkies who enjoy flying at Wilson, and need more than one "fix" (the MWSC) a year.

Well... It appears the earlier date (the week of Sept 24th) works better for or is available to the majority of pilots... So... by the power vested in me ()... I so declare...

The 2017 Wilson Fall Fun Fly will be the week of Sept 24th - 30th, with the majority of action being Friday and Saturday.

'looking forward to seeing you there!
