Becky and I will definitely be there this year. Hold our space. We plan to have a killer deal on main blades. We are also planning to pick up cool power on the way up.

Greg and I may try to make it, though it will depend on if I can take that Friday off. It will be without the camper, truck, and dog; heli's in the back of the G6 and a hotel!

The address to the field is the land owners home address. But it is close enough to the field. The house is located less than 1/2 mile from gate to field.
Here is the GPS coordinates standing in the middle of the flight line.

GPS Coordinates
N 33deg. 19.512’ W 086 deg. 57.155’

Someone asked on another forum about camping at the field. RV's usually start arriving as early as Monday or Tuesday before the event starts on Friday. At past events on the last several years, it is not uncommon for there to be several RV's setup by Wednesday evening. So if your camping and coming in early, just let me know so I can tell you how to get in the gate. I am usually at the field nearly every day the week of the event.
