A reminder from the Board of Directors - Guest pilots at the field
Guest fliers must be pre-registered in order to fly at our field. If you want to bring a guest pilot to the field, you must contact one of the board members (Tony Bill or Mauricio) and make sure that your guest is registered. Failure to do so will result in a field rules violation and could jeopardize your membership. As always, your guest MUST be AMA member and you MUST be present while they are flying.

Over 160 car loads of people came into our venue to watch the show.
