    Old Guard Fly-in at Gaston's Resort

    For those of you who have followed the story telling on the Old Guard thread, we are now starting a thread to tell you about the Old Guard Fly-in that we are having at Gaston's Resort in north central Arkansas. After reading the other Old Guard thread, Eddie was inspired to call some members that had been to some of the "old" fly-ins to see if they were interested in attending a "new" fly-in. They were, so Eddie called Mike Sisemore who called Gaston's and got the ball rolling. The fly-in will be over Memorial Day weekend. Mike and Patty and Eddie and I will be there on Friday May 24th. We encourage anyone, young or old, to join us. Come for one day or the whole weekend. If you are planning to stay over one or two nights, we encourage you to make a reservation as soon as possible (check online at Gaston's.com). Gaston's has a wonderful restaurant, great landing strip, is situated on the White River, just a beautiful place! We are going to start this thread so let us know if you have any questions...or comments.
    Ed and Charlotte Doyle and Mike and Patty Sisemore

    Bummer! Can't make it due to our Granddaughters HS graduation.
    As a reminder, the new owners of Gaston's DO NOT ALLOW CAMPING.
    Looking fwd to seeing and hearing all about it.

    Since Gaston's is local to me now days, even though I'm not part of the "old guard" as far as the SC list goes, I hope you don't mind if I stop by during the afternoon for day or two.

    Fdx Lou! You're not old enough to have a granddaughter...especially one that is old enough to be graduating from high school! We'll just have to continue having these fly-ins periodically since it is impossible to get to everything we want to in these "golden" years! And you are right...no camping allowed so we have a friend of ours who only camps (along with a group of his buddies) checking out camping possibilities in the area. We know Bill and Yevette (close?)Tracey won't consider coming if there aren't camping possibilities!
    And Cub Builder, you are absolutely welcome any time you can drop by! I personally would like to meet you. My family moved to AR back in the 1960's (Rogers/Bella Vista/Hot Springs) but I was out of high school...and in love with Ed Doyle... so I stayed in KS. It shouldn't be hard to find someone associated with the group any time you would stop by. This might not be the way you do things here on SuperCub.org, but my cell number is: 785.410.3640. Text me if you have any questions at any time.
    And CamTom12 from Huntsville AL and JD Williams, just know we hope you can get those work situations handled! We want as many people as possible so "new" people can meet "old" people and new stories can be created.
    If we haven't said this enough, "EVERYBODY IS WELCOME!" That's how the "old guard" membership got so large! I can remember meeting EV Roosevelt and Chuck Kinsberger at a fly-in at Gaston's. Chuck flies from FL to KS to hunt in the fall...he always comes by to stay with us for a day or two. I encourage everyone who plans to attend for at least a little while, let us know by posting.
    Finally, for those who do not know, I am Charlotte Doyle, wife of Ed Doyle (who does not "type"). We started dating at age 15(!!!), got married at age 21, and will be celebrating our 55th wedding anniversary this year...do the math and you will see we are senior citizens! I tell you this so you understand that I will be the one making the posts for the Flying Ds (chosen after returning from the first Red River Redneck fly-in and learning about SuperCub.org. I put it in "favorites" and taught Eddie how to mouse! the rest is history!). Until...
    Charlotte Doyle (enabler of Eddie Doyle)

David, the manager said they would try to arrange transportation into town, KFLP is 4 mi SW of Gaston’s and they have 24 hr self serve fuel.

    I donít know if I will be back from Alaska by then or not,but will do my best to be there in the ďUgly DuckĒ (PA 22-20 160). Check out H34, Huntsville, AR. We have the cheapest gas around and a 1200í crosswind grass runway. Anyone that would like is welcome to camp at my place (I live in my hangar on the airport).

    Since the term "old guard" is largely thought to have originated with Napoleon's Imperial Guard, I presume a statue like this should be one of the door prizes?

    And what exactly qualifies one to be part of the “Old Guard” vs member of SuperCub.Org?

    We have contacted some of the local pilots who like to fly "back country." They are excited about coming to Gaston's. I guess since we have been involved in so many fly-ins like many of you...I'd better start worrying about the weather that weekend. Now that will do a lot of good!

    I think you and Chris know the way well from following all the road signs to and from Gastons in the past. The return trip was quite entertaining from above.

    This whole "Old Guard" thing got started by some of the original members of Super Cub.org . The unique thing about this website has been how new members get accepted into the fold. Old is a relative term. I saw this at the restoration seminar we held in Graham, half of the folks had been there before and half were new. After a day or so nobody knew the difference. Cathy and I will be there. After the little gathering at Kirby's after Christmas I can assure anyone attending some great stories and you will figure out some of the little digs some of us get in on each other from time to time. Gonna be a great weekend with folks we don't get to hang out with enough. Hope to finally meet you Cub Builder and CamTom12.

    I'm getting this thread back up so people who may have missed it can see the info. I have been doing a little spring cleaning and found a Red River Red Neck shirt and an OK 18 hat so I have my wardrobe for the weekend. Eddie is encouraging me to make name tags (maybe to help him remember some of the names!), but I also remember how much some of you hate name tags!!! My friend Fraudman in Sioux Falls definitely would not let me name him! This is just going to be so much fun!

    Well, as I said several weeks ago, it is time to get this thread back up since, can you believe it, NEXT WEEKEND IS THE FLY-IN AT GASTON'S!!! We have been watching the water rise in Tuttle Creek Lake. We live 2 1/2 miles from the lake, but it has rained so much in the last two months (and the Missouri River is full), that the road we generally take into Manhattan is 38 feet underwater! The creeks have backed up to our farm and out a little on one of our fields! And rain is predicted today and tomorrow night!
    BUT I CHECKED THE WEATHER FOR GASTON'S NEXT WEEKEND AND IT IS PERFECT...80's during the day and 70's at night! Eddie and Mike have been talking about "what's happening" so I'll be reporting what I find out from them. We are looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Just talked to Sisemore. Mike and Patty will get to Gaston's on Friday...so will we. When will the rest of you begin arriving? This will help us do a little planning! We have had another 1 1/2 inches of rain so we are plenty soggy! Gaston's is looking great!

Eaton, Mike Sharp, Randy and Julie Corfman, Kirby Crowe (are you bringing your daughter who is also definitely Old Guard?), David Childs, Eric Taliaferro and ? (Eric and his dad, Jimmy, were the ORIGINATORS of the Red River Red Neck Fly-in that started all of this!), Rick Papp (great Rock and Roll dancer!), Joe Beck, Tom Powell, Matt Wittler, Dan Wild, Terry Chizek, Doug Wilson, Eddie Foy, Joe Edwards, Ray Mason, Tony Terrell, Ed and Charlotte Doyle...and others??
    Here are people who should be coming: Bill and Yevette (sp?) Tracey, Jay Pratt and Carol Beard, Dean Nordsving, Chris (and wife whom he courted at the Redneck Fly-in) Keating, John Blocker, Terry Dow, Sy Smith, Dennis (Shooter) Smith...and others? Are there any local Arkansas pilots coming?
    Please keep me up to date!!!
