    Help needed for Arlington 2011 Fly in

    Well it's time to start planning once more....... and this year we need some special help.
    This year the Fly-in is scheduled for the 6th - 10th of July

    Before we commit to participating in the event, we need to ask for some SERIOUS assistance.

    In years past I have pretty much ran all the leg work as well as manning the booth at least parts of all 5 days of the fly in.

    This year, that will not be possible. I am committed to be out of the state on the 8th - 10th and am hoping (read: begging) to get someone to step up and sort of run the show for the BAC booth.

    I am still willing to do all the leg work, including the gathering of volunteers and making all the arrangements with the Arlington staff, but we need to move RIGHT AWAY!

    They have been gracious enough to continue their "special" deal with us as far as the booth fee goes.... And the Executive committee feels (as do I) that it would be a shame to lose the momentum we have produced thus far by our presence.

    This is a call to action, preliminary as it may be, but we need to commit with the staff there ASAP. But I personally just cannot commit to the entire show this year.

    PLEASE examine your circumstances and see if you can't make room in your schedule to step up to the bat. I would consider it a pleasure to help all the way till the last possible moment, in any way I can!

    Please email me at thom@beechaeroclub.org with any questions or volunteer offers.

    OR you can leave questions and opinions in this thread.


    more later...............

    It looks like I'm going to be there. I will expect to see you there John. Also Jack and Mark. Do bring the girls with you as I will also (I hope). I'll bet that Ben and Heather will make it from Sun River, then we can have a family get together, with the exception of Uncle Thom. It would be nice to see other club members there too. I expect that Jon from Hillsboro will make it up and perhaps more of the Northwest region will be in attendance this year. We have a great tradition started and I'd like to see it flourish and blossom into the most significant BAC event on the Left Coast. This is a great fly-in that grows every year. The PacNorWest is the best kept summer getaway secret in America. The weather is great and plenty of niffty airplanes and events to see at Arlington. So, make your plans and get your reservations in now........ don't forget the umbrellas.

    I expect we'll be there Wednesday and Thursday as usual. Robin and I really enjoy the excuse to camp next to (the tent won't fit under) our wing. See you in July.

    John,

    Don't worry, I'm bringin' the artillery, if you get thrown in the slammer, you get one phone call, call us and we'll spring ya!

    Jon,

    Will be good to met you. I really hope you can make it.

    All, we will have to work on an "evening BAC event". Seafood last year, maybe we can try the new steakhouse at the Casino just up the hill from the Skykomish River. Also, make your reservations now! Hotels will be filling up fast. I'm hoping for the keys to the Suburban again, so I should be able to provide transport to and from. Last year I broke away on Saturday and flew to Roche Harbor. Great lunch! Maybe we can do something similar instead of dinner. Perhaps Orcas Island. Love to see a formation of 5 or 6 Mouse's over Puget Sound. That would make another great picture.

    I am so happy Marty has stepped up to run the show this year.... He already sounds like he has a great handle on things! Looking forward to another memorable event! I just posted a news article, so PLEASE... everyone interested in volunteering, or even if you just plan to attend for a short time, stay tuned to this thread for the latest info.

    Your posting in this forum thread also keeps it alive, instead of rolling off the home page, and keeps it fresh in everyone's mind.

    You will not regret attending and volunteering, ask anyone who has.

    I will update the news article after I get home tonight.

    Well, we have one Volunteer.... John Radysh from Quesnel BC will be flying down Thursday, and if if our EAPIS guinea pig doesn't get thrown in jail, he will man the booth at least on Friday and Saturday from 11am-1pm.

    Thanks John!
