Fly in Friday afternoon - Beach burgers and Dancing Friday night to live music. Satruday (all day) Oceano, CA Airport day - Fun, games and stuff - I'm going Friday Night and spending the night (provided weather is clear, VFR pilot only).

Here is the writeup from the actual website:

Join us May 10th and 11th for a good old-fashioned airport celebration at Oceano Airport.

Friday night May 10th: Beach Burger Fry and Dance featuring the San Luis Jazz Band. Tickets for the dinner/dance are $10 and available from any FOA volunteer or at the gate. Enjoy a burger, hayrides, strolling under the stars on the ramp and a great time shaking your groove thing.

Saturday, May 11th is Celebration Day and begins at 8:30 with the 5-Cities Lion's Club famous pancake breakfast. Family friendly, free admission. On display will be emergency responders, private airplanes, gyro-copters, trikes and more! In our campground there will be children's activities and booths.

There is overnight camping in our campground for $10. We have a lodging discount at the Pacific Plaza Resort [$65]. Oceano Fuel is once again bringing their Wheel of Fortune to spin for great prizes and discounts.
Please bring military care package items for donation. The Friends of Oceano Airport are teaming with a group that sends care packages to our front-line troops. We need hard candy, baby wipes, granola/protein bars, cup o'noodles, gum, travel sized toiletries, jerky, dark socks and trail mix.

      It was nice to meet you and Laurie at the Pilot Lounge!

      May 12, 2013

    • Robert g.

      Yes, nice meeting you as well Joe. Oceano has another "fun" evening event a little later in the year called "Fly In Movie Night" - Beach Burger Fry, then they project a movie on the side of the hanger. Last year it was "Airplane" - Regards -B-

    This is a really fun fly-in. This is my second year in a row. The band is outstanding and the burger fry is very tasty. Lots of fun airplane people to meet and hang out with. I look forward to this trip every year!

    I tried to book a room at the Pacific Plaza Resort and found that it was fully booked for the night of the 10th.

    March 2, 2013

    • Jolie L.

      Michael, I called and talked with the front desk gal, Summer who said there were plenty of rooms....

      March 11, 2013

    • Michael

      Jolie. Just made my reservation as well. Apparently, they had put a hold on rooms so that they were listed as booked on the website. Glad you called and thanks for letting me know. See you in May.

    Any updates on pacific plaza?

    March 3, 2013

    • Farley S.

    I just booked a room for 2 nights, May 10th & 11th. At first they mentioned that it was Mother's day weekend and the rate was $232/night. Then I mentioned the fly-in rate and it went down to $75/night.

    March 2, 2013

  • Robert g.

    Hmmmm... I was counting on Pacific Plaza Resort - I'll check with the organizers and see what other ideas they have...

      Should have mentioned I'm also a CFI if anyone want to do a BFR or something at the same time.

      March 2, 2013

  • Gary

    Would really like to go if anyone has an empty seat available From South County or Watsonville. Need my BFR and medical and not sure if I'll have it out of the way by then.

    • Farley S.

      I'm leaving from WVI and have a spot in my C172R. Let me know if you are interested.

      March 2, 2013

  • Farley S.

    Sounds fun. I've always wanted an excuse to go to L52. Roland, let me know if you decide to camp and I may join you.

    Hey Roland is this something a passenger can attend? If so, how much for flight expense? Sounds like a blast!

    March 2, 2013

  • Claude G.

    Same day as Hayward Airport open house with military hardware and EAA B17.

    March 2, 2013

  • Roland

    Hey Robert, if we camp out, which sounds fantastic, are we able to have a camp fire and tents around the fire? This sounds great. Anyone in the group want to go to this meetup but cant fly? I have room in my plane and would love to have some help with the expense of fuel and such. Really geeked up for this one.

    March 1, 2013

    • Robert g.

      I would plan on staying in the Motel, they offer a discount to Pilots using L52 - Laurie's not the camping type. But joining you at the campfire for a bit sound like fun and doable - The camp ground is right next to the runway and is a large grassy area. - B -

    Not 100% certain, but I am going to try my best to make it.

      Great... the organizers (Jolie Lucas and Mitch Ladding) are great people and always put on a well run and fun event. - Bob -

    Oceano is about 1:40 minutes from Bay Area (at 90 knots) - I'm flying if the weather is VFR. The Main Event is Airport day on Saturday May 11th, but the fun starts Friday night with Beach Burgers and dancing to live music. Motels in walking distance and they have "loaner" bikes at the airport.
