    BACFest 2016 - REGISTER NOW! for the best value in aviation....

    Members-

    It is July 18 and our annual event will be here before you know it. Our BACFest event this year will take place in Branson, MO. The dates are Septemebr 22 through September 25. Our host hotel for this event is the Branson Radisson. We have a wonderfully discounted rate which includes breakfast each morning. The Radisson is just off off the famous Branson strip where fantastic music shows abound, water parks, miniature golf, go-karts, Ride-the-Ducks (on Table Rock Lake - one of the most beautiful lakes in the Central Unites States). The activities are endless for young and old... Here is the contact information for the Radisson Hotel and when you make reservations, please tell them you are with the Beech Aero Club event for the special rate: Website: www.RadissonBranson.com Radissson Hotel Branson, 120 South Wildwood Dr., Branson, MO 65616 Phone: (417) 335-5767

    Our host airport for this event is the Graham Clark Downtown Airport (KPLK). They are ready to help you with any special needs you might have for your aircraft while staying in Branson, including the availability of hangar space if you desire. Call them today if you need a hangar: https://www.airnav.com/airport/KPLK. Let them know you are with the Beech Aero Club event.

    The Official Schedule of Events is as Follows:

    Thursday - September 22 ARRIVAL DAY at KPLK Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, beverages (Adult and non-Adult) starrting at 3PM through 7PM. Shuttle service back and forth from the airport to the hotel. If anyone is flying into Springfield, MO on a commercial airline flight, please contact me by private message. We will be providing shuttle service for arrivals at KSGF. It is about a 45 minute drive from KSGF to Branson. Your evening is free, so feel free to explore the nightlife of the Branson strip -take in a show, tour the Titanic Museum, visit Ripley's Believe It or Not, visit the Outlet Mall just up the street from the hotel, etc... All of this is within walking distance or less than a 5 minute ride.

    Friday - September 23 FLY OUT/FLY BACK and SERVICE CLINIC - This year, we will gather at our host airport, KPLK at 9AM. We will have a fly out to Gaston's White River Resort (3M0) http://www.gastons.com/. Non-flying members and family will be whisked away in a luxury motor coach for a 2 hour ride through the Ozark Mountains to Gaston's. Gaston's is a famous and wonderful resort just off off Bull Shoals Lake on the White River - famous for amazing trout fishing. The flight over is about 30 minutes and it promises to be full of beautiful scenery. The runway 6/24 at Gaston's is grass and measures 3200' long by 55' wide. We will enjoy a wonderful luncheon in the scenic and historic Gaston's restaurant overlooking the White River. Gaston's also has a small little wildlife zoo area of indigenous animals. There is a quaint little gift store that is also available for perusing... My wife never fails to leave with some little gift that accents our home. Non-flying members and family will depart once again on their luxury motor coach back to Branson. Pilots and passengers will depart Gaston's starting at 1PM and arrive back at KPLK for our service clinic. The Service Clinic is chock-full of valuable nuggets including a ADS-B seminar with potential solutions for our aircraft and compliance with the ruling. We will have a group event for Friday evening... Stay tuned for this announcement.

    Saturday - September 24 - Club Meeting Day and Banquet - BAC Board Members will meet in the morning to discuss the business of the club. Non-Board members and family have the morning to once again enjoy the magic that Branson has to offer. Perhaps a boat rental and cruise on Table Rock Lake is in order. Parasailing more your style... Skeet shooting? Zip lining.... Silver Dollar City (http://www.silverdollarcity.com/theme-park)? It's all in Branson... Lunch will be served for all who would like to participate... There will be a all member meeting following lunch... all are invited to attend. Our evening will be full of merriment and cheer as we enjoy a wonderful banquet with a full menu.

    Sunday - September 25 - DEPARTURE DAY - Shuttle service to and from the airports will start as early as requested, but officially at 8AM. Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the hotel before you depart, or perhaps extend your stay and enjoy the finest that Branson has to offer such as Championship Golf or Fishing.
