The Second Annual East Tennessee Fall Fly-In will be held October 10, 11, & 12 at the Elizabethton Municipal Airport (0A9). For those of you who came last year, the schedule will be much the same. Friday afternoon/evening we'll do a short fly-out to a couple of local strips, fly the Nolichucky River, Watauga Lake the back to 0A9. On Saturday we'll do a much longer fly-out, probably the Nolichucky River Gorge into NC.
The storyteller on Friday night last year was popular so I'm going to have another one come and Saturday night hopefully we'll have a Bluegrass band. The meals will be handled much like New Holstein with Friday night, Saturday morning and evening and Sunday morning catered. The shower facilities at the FBO will be available again as will the airport crew car for any runs for supplies.
I'll ask for a show of hands next week to get an initial head count and then I can get an idea for the meal costs. Probably again in line with what SJ charged at NH. The camping fee will be $10 per night.
For those of you who didn't come last year the weather in East Tennessee in early October is usually warm days and cool nights so plan to bring a jacket. The leaves will be changing color but I have not heard a forcast yet on how the color will be this year. The FBO will be offering fuel discounts to fly-in participants.
Hope you can join us this year.
