Fly-In Pizza Lunch @ Westover Field (KJAQ)

Come join me and my family when I fly them into the Amador County Airport (KJAQ) for a Pizza Lunch catered by Pizza Plus in Sutter Creek.

Once you've landed and parked, we'll meet at the Amador County Airport's Administration Building to decide what type of pizza to order for delivery by Pizza Plus. According to some very close friends, Pizza Plus is supposed to be one of the best kept secrets in Gold County (http://www.yelp.com/biz/pizza-plus-sutter-creek). The cost per person will range between $5 and $8 dollars and is totally driven by the total number of persons who attend.

I hope I planned this far enough ahead that most of you can make it. It sure would be nice to see and hangout with everyone before the winter season grabs a hold. ========================================

    What a fun fun time. It was nice to meet everyone and have some great pizza. Yum. Had a great flight home, but was pretty scuddy getting in to Santa Maria.

    Skippy and Eve, that was great. Thanks again for organizing everything. It was my first visit to KJAQ. I had fog and low clouds, drizzle, gusty winds, and a 31 knot headwind on the return leg, but it was all worth it! The pizza, weather, and company were all great! We need to organize more of these. Carol and Victor had some great suggestions for good food by airports, which i'd like to try soon.

    No need for thanks Mark. Wouldn't have been a great day without all of those who came out. Pizza was Amazingly good. Almost worth the 45 minute wait. Next time, I'm going with Jae's idea and calling from headset.

    Outstanding day. An earlier delivery of the Pizza would have made it even better.

    Thanks for setting up lunch today Skippy. Bumpy ride home, didn't spot Lodi airport on the way home until about 3 miles away due to the dust Luckily the wind was right down the Rwy.

    Since this is my family's home drome I can help with anything needed being brought to the airport. I believe there are picnic tables near the FBO. If you need ice, or whatever just let me know. My cell[masked]-6619. Maggie will be parked over by my Dad's hangar, but I will move her to the group on Sunday.

    I might actually be able to come. I will be in JAQ to celebrate my Dad's 91st birthday!

    A couple of last minute thoughts. 1. Make sure you bring some cash. The pizza will delivered to the airport and I don't know if the driver accepts ATM or credit cards. 2. In case we can't secure an area with table/seats, make sure to bring a folding chair or two and maybe an umbrella. 3. Please plan on being on the ground on or before 1230. I'd like everyones input on the pizza but, the needs of the many will outweigh the needs of the (missing) one(s). I plan on arriving before 1130 and I had planned on bringing my kids but, it looks like the 180 hp C172 is down for maint. So, N62209 (white with blue stripe) will probably be my chariot for the day. If needed, my cell number is:[masked]-7044. Please call if your running late or can't make it. The lunch count is being planned solely on the "Yes" RSVP's.

    I'll see you all on Sunday which I suspect will be a great day. Make sure to bring a camera.

    FYI... I'll be landing in the Cessna 172 N19897 (White/Green/Orange)

    I'll be there if my annual is all wrapped up. Never been to KJAQ.

    Wow! 10 pilots and guest so far. That's awesome. Since I'm not too sure where or what the schematics look like at Westover Airport, I'd suggest: If you have them and if you have the space in your W&B, bring a outdoor folding chair or two. I'm bringing at least three chairs and a folding picnic table that seats four.

    • Tony "Skippy" A.

      Okay. I'm send out an email tomorrow to some folks. It will probably be either TCY or LVK for pick ups but, I'll keep you posted. If and when I get an answer, I'll tell them to contact you directly via your email here on this site.
