The 2022 Taildragger Fly In is almost here.
EAA 284 TDFI Preparation
Date: September 3 & 4, 2022
Place: Red Stewart Airfield (40I)
The fly-in will be held on Sunday, September 4th with set-up on Saturday the 3rd as is our usual practice.
Tim and I have purchased the non-perishable food items. We have a new banner promoting the Pancake Breakfast.
For set up on Saturday please try to arrive by 10 am so that we can get the work done and out of the way. The Stewarts will have their annual Air Show at 5 PM and there will be a concert with the Repeating Arms at 7 PM. There will be food trucks on the field in the afternoon and evening.
On Sunday morning please arrive by 6:30 AM so that we can start serving at 7:30 AM. We should be able to get everything cleaned up by noon or 1 PM on Sunday. I will need one person to help me on Monday put things away and put a good coat of Vaseline on the griddle surfaces to keep them from rusting.
We will do our Young Eagles Rally late in the morning; I will be registering Young Eagles during breakfast. I will need someone to buy the cold and frozen food (sausage, milk, OJ, and margarine) and ice either late Saturday or early Sunday. We gauge the amount of food we buy by the weather. The coolers are cleaned and ready to go. We can work out who will get this task on Saturday. Be sure to wear a hat when working in the kitchen/serving area. I look forward to seeing everyone on both Saturday and Sunday.
