We are only two weeks away from our fun-filled flyin.  September 21st, Saturday, will be a day to remember in Granbury Texas.  The weather is predicted to be perfect to fly-in or drive-in for this annual event that will take place between 9:30am-4:00pm.  Come to the Nutcracker Golf Couse parking area, park and take advantage of our free golf-car taxi service.  Pecan Plantation is a gated community.  The guard will give you a map to the parking area.

We will once again be serving our awesome hamburgers and hot dogs as our primary fundraiser for the year.  You won’t want to miss our famous desserts all made by our local chapter. Monies support the Young Eagles, send young people to AirVenture and various other charities throughout the year.

Highlights of the day include our own version of KidVenture.  Flight simulators and aviation related activities and crafts will be available throughout the day in the big hanger.  Along with KidVenture, we will be flying children from 8-17 for Young Eagles. Pre-register on a first-come first-fly basis from 10-12 and fly from 11-1:00.  We typically fly about 100 kids so come early!

Our silent auction under the big tent will have you drooling for your favorite items. Items have been donated from members and local and regional vendors, mostly related to aviation. Our big ticket item will be an IPad.

Bring your lawn chairs, sit under the big tent or stroll around the dozens of airplanes and watch the showcase of planes coming and going.  We have a  very pleasant, relaxing event.  Make this a family affair and bring everyone.  We have something for all to do!

Please forward this to all your aviation contacts, family and friends … everyone is invited.

Invite your friends and join us YOU in September! We guarantee an awesome day.
