Wekerle Field whenever you are in the area.  

Our 600 feet by 70 feet hard packed DG runway 

easily accommodates larger aircraft.  

Open airspace gives plenty of maneuvering room.  

We have lots of shade, prep tables and safety run-up stands.  

Instructors are available and pilot trainees are welcome.

Mike Valdez, President  (661) 809-0700,   

Harry Worley, Vice President,

Fly In at Buttonwillow Airport. Saturday November 30.

By Stacy Bond.

Planning is still under way, so keep in mind that things are subject to change, but I wanted to give you a heads up on what we hope to have. 

o Sweepstakes giveaway - We will have a secondary prize giveaway that will involve the purchase of tickets.  This giveaway will have some prizes that have been donated to the club for this purpose.  If you have anything you would like to donate, let us know.  The drawing on this may be a drawing where the winner gets to pick from the prizes that are available.  Another possibility is that we could have cups that you put your ticket into.  So if you buy ten tickets and there are ten prizes, you could put all 10 into one cup (if it's a prize you really want), one ticket in each of the ten cups, or any combination thereof.  A winner would then be drawn from each cup to receive the prize the cup represents.  More information will be available once we see what we have and how we prefer to run the sweepstakes.  Again, should you have anything (in decent shape) to donate (planes, equipment, parts, flying related stuff, etc), let us know.

o Swap Meet - Have old planes, equipment, accessories you no longer need?  Bring it with you and sell, trade or give it away in our swap meet.  I'll bring one less plane so I have room for an extra one on the way back!!!

o BBQ - We'll cook up some lunch and maybe even have some donuts or something for breakfast.  A list will go out later for people to sign-up for what they'd like to bring.  Basically the same thing we've done in the past.

If anyone would be interested in any contests just for fun (fastest plane, lowest flying plane, spot landing...   you know, the kind of stuff us guys do every week).  With all the other activities, I don't think we should do too many or have it officiated like our normal Fun Fly, but we could have some spontaneous unofficial challenges if you like.  I'll bring the GPS meter just in case.
