I recieved an email from Steve Bush who is the airport manager up in Salida, CO. informing us of their upcoming 50th anniversary Fly-In event being held on Saturday June 28th, 2014. We participated with them last year at this time with a static display of RC aircraft and some RC flight demonstrations also. Steve has given us ample notice this year that they would appreciate our support by returning again this year to help them celebrate their milestone anniversary.
I sent out an email awhile back letting our Fremont County Radio Control Club members know about them asking for our support again and I also sent the invitation out to the Pueblo Sky Corral RC Club members along with the Colorado Springs Pikes Peak Flyers Club to inform them of the celebration also and I have recieved several inquiries back in regards to some of them wanting to do some flying demonstrations and static displays too. I haven't heard back from too many of our own club members regarding attending this event yet, so please let me know at your earliest convenience one way or the other about attending and participating.
We will set up a booth again to pass out cards and club information and answer the publics questions about this great hobby of ours that we enjoy so much, and hopefully gain some new RC flying participants or club members possibly.
There will be overnight dry camping available and the restrooms will remain available for use overnight at the airport terminal building, if anyone decides to camp there for this event.
I look forward to hearing back from the club members very soon regarding our club's support of this event.
Come on up to Salida and enjoy viewing all of the Fly-In planes such as warbirds, experimentals, jets, helicopters and also general aviation aircraft also.
Don't forget your camera to capture the spectacular scenery that abounds and surrounds the airport, along with the car show and planes that will be attending this event.
Thanks for your support,
