    Smoke In the New Year! Smoketown, PA 1/1/20

    Let's join in with a growing grass roots fly-in. Smoketown has long been a general aviation haven known for good food adjacent to the airport. Below is a synopsis of the event from the organizer. (We will have our banner and make our own photos too!)

    1 Jan 2020: The Annual New Year's Day Fly-Out to Smoketown, PA 11th Year

    -For a pilot, there is no better way to start the New Year than by FLYING and breaking open the logbook on New Year's Day!

    -Come join us for our annual NEW Years Day Flight to Smoketown, PA, S37, a fantastic, friendly and fun little airport in Amish Country of Central PA! Cheap fuel available.

    -Land and then a short walk over to Joni's 34 Diner!

    -Land S37 between 11:30 and 11:50. Meet at the FBO for a group photo, and then all walk together over to Joni's Place 5 min walk, nearly connected to the airport -Late Lunch with your pilot buddies, old and new, at 12:00pm! Cash helps Joni, but all forms of payment taken. The lunch will take about an hour.

    -There will be a very short dedication to all beloved aviators who Flew West in 2019.

    -MUST be day VMC to go, pilot's call. Winds must be reasonable for light aircraft.

    -No RSVP - just show and go! Looking for 5000 foot ceiling, 7 miles vis and winds less than 10 knots.

    -Last year we had 20+ pilots meet, so this is a growing event. The variety of aircraft was something to behold.

    What a great winter fly - out!

    This will be a great event, IF Joni is still there. She's in the process of relocating the diner. Date unknown.

    I will make this an official event of the BAC Northeast Region.
    If you go, save your receipts and apply for reimbursement of your meal.

    Our Ice Runway Fly-In will be February 8, 2020 at Alton Bay, New Hampshire.

    I will take care of the meal (Plus a hefty tip!) and then submit it all to you for reimbursement. Not only am I invading the NE Region, I'm plundering too!
