Thread: BAC to Ohio

    BAC to Ohio

    Morn'n Folks,

    In search of a Fly-In I can actually - fly - into - as I keep missing out due to weather... Maybe I'll have better luck in the North Central region ??? I haven't really flown in that direction before so it would be kind of cool as a new experience... Seems the next one that is in realistic range for me is in Ohio on a Sunday... Since it is kind of a long haul - I was planning to make a weekend out of it (weather permitting)... 8 to 10 hours in a plane - depending on winds - is a bit much for my girlfriend in a single day... Anyone else planning on going to this event ??? Can I get a PIREP for the area - decent place to stay - attractions - something to do on Saturday - etc etc etc...

    JP's Barbeque Ribs & Chicken, (KTZR) Columbus, OH
    Sunday - July 10th
    Event Type:BAC Fly-In
    Event Location:Bolton Field (KTZR) Columbus, Ohio
    Paid or Fee/Free:Free
    Fly into Bolton Field and join us at JP's Barbeque Ribs and Chicken located on the field. Restaurant opens at 12:00 noon. Arrive by 11:30am so we can go in as a group. http://www.jpsbbq.com/bolton.asp .

    Scott,
    I have been to Bolton Field and JP's Ribs several times. It will be worth the trip. KTZR is a towered field just to the southwest and outside of Columbus Class C airspace. Easy, friendly airport. Car rentals are available and hotels of all shapes and sizes a few miles toward town. Haven't done much in Columbus, but here's a tourism website: http://columbusoh.about.com/od/artse...Do_Path.htm#s3

    I plan to attend and will bring a few guys with me from 27K. We're a little over an hour's flight south. See you there.

    Hey guys!

    I'm a new BAC member located in Columbus. I'll be just getting back from vacation on the 9th but will plan
    to come out. Not an owner (yet) but will look forward to meeting any attendees- assuming the weather
    cooperates- it's been pretty nasty here all year!

    Hi Jim,

    Welcome to BAC - sir... What do you fly and where do you fly from ??? These are definately great little planes and a blast to fly... I learned in a 172 - and - I would never be happy going back to them... Yeah - we really need a break on the weather - I haven't had a decent trip since last year... Hope to see you there...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Jim,

    Yes indeed, welcome to the club. Looking forward to meeting you and saying hello. Surely the weather will be cooperating by July 10. There are ribs and barbecued chicken that need to be consumed!

    Hey guys!

    Moved here about 2 years ago and finally started flying out of Marysville (kmrt). They had a great Archer with 430 and autopilot until the engine went kaput. Owner didn't seem interested in fixing so the leaseback fell apart. Now they have a 180hp 172 that I got checked out but- ick- I learned in Cessna but really don't like them anymore- except maybe the 177. I'm in the market for a Sundowner or Super III and talking with a couple of sellers now but nothing firm.

    Hope to see all of you on the 10th!

    We are a week away from the fly-in. Based upon the responses it looks like we will have a good turn out. I talked to Carol at JP's after I learned they have putt putt, horseshoes, and volleyball. All are available before they open at noon. So, if any of you would like to join me before we eat for horseshoes etc. let me know. I'll move up my arrival time.
