Night Fly-In, Dinner & Trivia @ Livermore (KLVK)

Is anyone up for a Night Flight "Fly-In" followed by Dinner and a Trivia Contest?

On the "Full Moon" night of January 15, 2014.  I'll be departing Tracy Muni (KTCY) and heading to Livermore (KLVK) to eat dinner and participate in a FREE trivia contest hosted by Beebs Sports Bar & Grill (adjacent to taxiway "Juliet").

Trivia starts at 1830 hours and normally goes until 2030 hours. Teams for trivia range from 1 to 6 players and prizes are awarded to the top winning teams. Beebs can be accessed via the Northwest Apron @ KLVK, adjacent to taxiway "Juliet." After parking and securing your aircraft.  Head North towards the golf course and through the chained link fence gated door.  Beebs will be on your right, directly in front of the putting green.  Please DON'T FORGET TO GET THE GATE CODE COMBO BEFORE EXITING.

***  If your NOT familiar with Livermore Airports layout or; you've been but, not to Beebs.  Don't hesitate in asking for a "progressive taxi" like I ALWAYS DO. Livermore is an extremely busy airport and it's really easy, even for the veteran pilots to get lost in shuffle of Livermore's Towers & Ground Communications.

Sunset on the 15th is at 1707 hours.  My plan is to depart Tracy and land at Livermore around 1730 hours to have dinner.  After which, I'll test my knowledge by playing some trivia.  Before leaving KLVK, I plan to complete my night currency before heading back home.  FYI - The (Full) Moon rise on the 15th is at 2053 hours.  If the sky's and weather hold, I'm betting on a breathtaking views of the Bay Area on my ride home.  

**** Make sure to fill-up before leaving Livermore.  The current fuel prices for SS 100LL are $5.10 and, $5.70 for FS. 

Below, I've listed a few links to help aid with your flight plans & navigation.  I've also included two links detailing information about Beebs.

I hope you join me for what I think will be a fun night out.

    How was the Meetup? Let me say this. No meetup, even if attended by just one person will ever be bad. I arrived late again but, it was nice walking in and seeing Mark and his family and, it was great meeting Franck. Beside out little group, I guess some other pilot or fly-in groups had the same idea tonight because, there were eventually two other groups beside ours getting together for meet-ups and trivia.

    Because of the other groups and all the confusion associated with others telling staff they were the pilot group as guest came in. We ended up making a new friend and a possible new member as well. If your reading this Eric (KPAO). It was great meeting and hanging our with you.

    Sorry I missed it. I was on a multi-leg trip in the Dakota and decided to RON in Paso Robles. Perfect night for flight, though!

    Hey everyone. Had a delay getting back to school tonight so I won't make it. I hope is a great event and I'll see everyone next week.

    Looks like 10 of for tomorrow night. I'll arrive early and secure a table for us. I know Mark and Roland but I'm not certain if I've met the rest. So, to make things easy and less awkward. If you can't find me or our table, just ask the staff to point you to the Hungry Pilots table.

    I called Beebs this evening to ask about age restrictions for trivia and, I'm sorry to report that trivia is NOT going to be played this Wednesday evening.

    To turn lemons into lemonade, after dinner I'm planning a Bay Tour to take advantage of the full moon.

    Nope.. I didn't even look at the AFD Mark. Was looking at AOPA's site when I was typing the post:

    Skippy, according to AF/D ATC shuts down at 2100 (0500Z) local...
    Are you sure about 1800? I think it's the airport facilities that shut down at 1800. Anyone else familiar with Livermore know differently?
