Fall 2018 Backcountry MarkSpencer

By Mark Spencer

 

For all you backcountry adventurers, we’ll have weekend fly-ins this fall with a purpose! We made such great strides over the last few years re-opening our backcountry to aviation, and had lots of fun and friendship in the process! Each of these airstrips needs a little TLC to keep them in safe condition for all, and with a little effort from all, this TLC is made light work. There are many unsung heroes out there that have taken on regular maintenance of some of our more remote airstrips, for example Red Creek, and our thanks go out to those folks who have unselfishly given of themselves to keep these strips groomed for all of us. So take a look at the schedule Tommy has put together for this fall, join us at one of the TLC weekends this fall.

October 12-14:
Pleasant Valley, Young 24AZ - We need to mount our new windsock pole, bring shovels and picks!

November 2-4:
Double Circle AZ66 - Runway work, brush clearing, and log preservation on the lodge.

December 14-16:
Grapevine AZ88 - New windsock pole, general clean up, etc.

Of course don’t forget our monthly fly in camp and lunch on the third Saturday of each month at Grapevine, AZ88. We still need volunteers to host a couple of these Saturdays! It’s a lot of fun and satisfaction seeing the smiles of fellow aviators! Contact Mike Andresen to sign up:
