May 9 (Sat): Chili Fiesta Fly-in

Fly in, Drive in, rain or shine, with your best chili recipe and/or hors d'oeuvre item (optional). This annual event attracts local towns folk, and if weather permits, a large contingent of interesting flying machines. Festivities begin at 11 AM and go until 4PM. As always, keep an eye out for "no-radio" aircraft. See the story here of the 2014 Chili Fly-in.

ATTENTION PILOTS:
Position reporting on 122.9 is recommended. Numerous NORDOs, see & avoid is the rule! We like to use Runway 02 for arrivals if winds permit, as it permits easier egress from the runway.
