For all you backcountry adventurers, we’ve lined up a few weekend fly ins this fall where we can catch up with each other and enjoy the backcountry! 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 also 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! We’ll also be introducing a new airstrip this fall, an opportunity to spend a few days at one of the finest dude ranches in AZ, south of Alpine.
Pleasant Valley, Young (24AZ) - This fly in was another very special weekend for those attending. The weather was great, and many enjoyed meals in town at the new local restaurants, the Pleasant Palate and Bruzzi’s Vineyard. Thanks again to the local folks who helped out with transportation, Vern and Kathy are just wonderful, and Barry Dille showed up with his entire band for entertainment!
Double Circle Ranch (AZ66) - It’s time to gather at the old Double Circle Ranch again. This place is simply incredible! Join us for three days of camping and Saturday night Potluck dinner in the old lodge. We’ll be doing basic runway work, brush clearing, as well as log preservation on the lodge. You’ll not want to miss this last of our spring fly ins!
Our last monthly weekend event at Greapevine, AZ88 will be on your own, with no lunch provided as this is the same date as our annual meeting at Casino Arizona in Scottsdale. Please join us at the meeting if you can!
