• BEECH DAY June 4, Kennewick Vista Field - update

    Well, only about three weeks left until Beech Day at Vista Field, Saturday June 4 (S9, hosted by Chep and Kay Gauntt. http://www.airnav.com/airport/S98<br />
    <br />
    I talked to Kay today, and the hours for this relaxed and fun day at the 'hanger' are 9-3. BBQ about noon. Time enough for everybody to fly-in and tie down, and then pop open the chairs and umbrellas and get ready for some great hanger flying!There's NOT much housing in Kennewick that weekend, but nearby is Pasco (KPSC)<br />
    Pendleton (KPDT) and my home base at Walla Walla (KALW) with places to stay!<br />
    <br />
    Chet's working with Ben Tuttle Aviation for a fuel discount, and Chep even went<br />
    out there with his road grader to flatten out some more parking!<br />
    <br />
    The Gauntt's have sent out about 400 postcards to their friends in the Bonanza<br />
    Society, and if they get 10% - that's at least 40!<br />
    <br />
    I've got a pretty big list of MusketeerMail and BAC members, and I'm telling Chep<br />
    that we can get more of our Beech Aerocenter planes there than he'll get Bonanzas!<br />
    <br />
    OK! The gauntlet has been thrown down, so let's get our planes and flight plans<br />
    ready!<br />
    <br />
    Chep and Kay assure me that EVERYBODY is invited - even though it's BEECH DAY -<br />
    get your friends and get off the ground (but don't forget that RSVP please?)<br />
    <br />
    Here's the list I have so far - if you see your self on there, how about sending<br />
    me a yes/no so I can get back to Kay with some numbers for her shopping list?<br />
    <br />
    Also, if your status has changed, I'd appreciate hearing from you.<br />
    <br />
    If you know of another owner who's not listed, how about filling me in?<br />
    <br />
