Spring 2018 Backcountry Line Up MarkSpencer


By Mark Spencer


While the weather continues to favor Arizona backcountry in the central desert, plan on attending one of APA’s backcountry weekends at the Grapevine Airstrip (88AZ) for one of our third Saturday BBQ’s. Of course you can fly in on Friday and stay the weekend, or if you are more of a loner, visit Grapevine anytime you like thanks to the efforts of your fellow pilots, the APA, and the RAF. Grapevine BBQ’s for this winter/spring are: January 20th, February 17th, March 17th, April 21st, and May 19th. 

As the high country weather begins to warm up, we’re looking forward to a good turnout at the old Double Circle Ranch the weekend of March 23-25, with a backup weekend of March 31 through April 1st. Our annual Memorial Day weekend at Pleasant Valley (Young 24AZ) will be May 25-27.
