I thought id get this up early . Please feel free to suggest locations  for our next pnw fly in. Final decicions will be made by the original organizers of the event which is tom tabbs, george balaz, david coy and henry imagwa.final decisions will be made based on safety of location accessability and mc conditions  and the general safety of all levels of piloting skills. Please dont hesitate to put up information and discussions on the wall. 

   I also want to thank ed evans , liegh ann evans and henry imagwa for all the terrific work they did  and including lee homestead and his pilots association for having us at homestead airpark. I think everyone knows what a sucsess it was  and how much fun we all had making new friends and enjoying some beers laughing around the campfires.

    I hope we can continue  in the efforts to pull together the entire pilot community for some just plain down to earth pilot comodery.      Thanks everyone David coy

    So far it has been suggested for shelby washington . There is a nice beach landable airport their. Also hamilton montana has been suggested and their is a hugh grass strip there.   The airport manager at plains ap has been begging me to host it there as well. We have plenty of time so dont hesitate to put up ideas and discussions!

      Also it has been suggested that we move the dates  not to conflict with arlington and osh kosh. Please dont hesitate to discuss you ideas and opinions   thanks

    White Eagle, 

    I lived in western WA for 20 years but I have never heard of Shelby. Please help me find it?

     

  • Leo

    I think it's shelton, not Shelby....not sure.

    In any case, I'd like to submit Polson as an option.

    1. it's closer ( for many of us including back east pilots if they come out)

    2. it offers, 10K plus mountains, lakes, farmland, open plains and fantastic rivers.

    3. It's diversed in terms of pilot skills, from begginer to advanced.

    4. The airport was open, spacious and friendly to camping.

    5. Lots of great restaurants, supermarkets, gas stations.

    6. And it has some hangars, plus grass tie downs right in front of your camp/RV.

     

    I think it's perfect for these meets and the size they have grown to. Personally I  loved it and would go back a second time in a heartbeat.

    Yes shelton thanks for correcting me leo . I couldnt remember.  I will make note of polsen we also have plains and it has water. Lets just keep the ideas rolling.

  • FlyDiver

    Whew, thanks, Shelton I know. Lived there and flew out of KSHN for 17 years. Only problem with western Washington is lots of rain and fog. August often the best month for flying but you can still get rained out. Now you know why I retired to Texas. Chelan might be a better weather choice.

    I will say that I love Polson but I would also like to go somewhere that I havent been.

    Shelton looks like it has lots of amenities, pastoral fields, beautiful rivers and shopping and dining nearby. the one thing that it lacks is the lake.

    1st choice Shelton,Wa

    2nd choice Polson, MT
