Chapter 's annual fly-in at Anahuac will be October 16 through the 18 but many stay until Sunday morning. This year we have renamed the fly-in from the Gatorfest Fly-In to the Steve Weir Memorial Fly-In and have moved the event from September (the date of the actual Gatorfest) to October where the weather should be much more bearable. We will have food and drinks on site. T-Shirts for sale. And a raffle featuring a GPS. More details to follow.

That's great...I was worried it would conflict with Reklaw Fly-in...but it's the following week:

29th Annual Flying M Ranch Reklaw (Texas) Fly-In and Campout Oct. 24-26, 2014

The last fly-in one had 400 aircraft...the most was 542 aircraft in 2008.

Did they ever get the Jet-A pump working?

I can finally RSVP that I will attend a fly-in...by actually flying in! Last time I was at Anahuac I drove there with a friend and got time with Desmon.

Just a bump, I'll do this every week until the fly-in so nobody forgets.

NOTE: The banner at the top has the wrong address, it is actually the weekend prior, October 16 - 19.

We will be out there that Saturday and will pull some of the gyros out for show, probably some flying, but otherwise it wont be an event for us, per say.

Hope to be there about Tuesday 14th ... help with anything we can to get the event set up & fly OZ'rora about before it gets busy!
( I hear the runway is rough like Mentone's ... looks like I'll be able to really test Jake's shimmy guard!!!! ;) )
Planning some cool XC's with Kent - while in that area! :)

Had a bunch of delays with Calif Power Systems returning my rebuilt carbs to me- terrible customer service. Hope to get them installed this week and still planning on flying down from Colorado to attend Anahuac and the Flying M Ranch flyin the next weekend.
