HOT has been rescheduled for JULY 12-14th!!
It appears that tropical storm Andrea will impact our area. Friday is looking to be a total wash. Depending on which forecast you look at, Saturday is questionable, with at least the early part of the day being over cast and chance of rain.
There are quite a few of pilots traveling from different states to be here on Friday, so we had to make the decision today as to the status of the event.
HOT is cancelled for this weekend, ( Friday, June 7, Saturday June 8, and Sunday June 9th )
BUT, fear not, we are going to select another date for the event.
We hate the thought of HOT not happening this weekend but we really feel this is the best decision at this time. We want everyone to have a great time and get in plenty of flying, and the forecast is not going to cooperate with us.
We will email everyone very soon with the new dates.
The Pilot Flight Log has been updated thru March 2013 and can be found under the Flight Log Page.
People! New rule in place. If you log your sorties by hand at the field and you do not sign your full name, there is a good chance your flights will not be recorded. I know most of you by first name, but simply can’t remember all of you, especially new members, or members who only frequent the field a few days of the month.
So please, if in doubt, sign your full name. If you are a new member, include your AMA# the first time you log a flight. (Just one time )
Or better yet! Use the online flight log system!
