    To help us plan, please register and submit the Volunteer Liability Form before 25 May:

    The Oregon Department of Aviation (ODA) is under pressure to close and divest the State of non-revenue producing airports. Unfortunately, this means the futures of many remote airports are threatened. We pilots need to get involved and demonstrate to the State that these airports are important to us.

    To that end, the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) has been collaborating with ODA to hold a volunteer work party at McKenzie Bridge State Airport (00S) on Saturday 02 June 2018. The objectives would be to demonstrate our commitment to the airfield by making it safer and more attractive for the recreational aviation community. Volunteers are needed to help accomplish several maintenance tasks, and to show ODA that the airport is important to us.

    Spouses, kids, and dogs are all welcome to participate. Volunteers are welcome to camp on the airfield beginning Friday afternoon. Please refer to the attached site drawing for information on access.

    If you plan to fly in to help, please arrive Friday night, or before 09:00 on Saturday. Once we start operating the tractors to repair the airstrip surface, it will be difficult to accommodate a lot of aircraft arrivals. If you camp on the airfield overnight, please use the indicated area.

    As an added bonus, the Eugene VW Bus Club will be showing a Godzilla movie on Saturday night! Bring your own chairs and refreshments. We’ll
    have a BBQ potluck on Saturday afternoon after the work is done. Tony Hann from Infinite Air in Albany will be firing up the grill, so bring a dish to share and your favorite beverage. Stop in at S12 and buy some fuel and say thanks to Tony.

    It will be helpful if you could please register before 25 May so we can plan. In addition, the ODA requires submission of the attached Volunteer Liability Form prior to starting work. Please complete and forward directly to ODA as indicated on the bottom of the form.

    Come to show your support for recreational aviation and make some new pilot friends. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

    Thanks in advance for your support.
