Please get this information to your members ASAP
The Golden West Fly-In will be held at the Marysville Airport on
Saturday, October 15, 2016.
The October venue should
provide cooler weather and subdued winds for this year’s
gathering! The format for Golden
West 2016 will again be a one day Fly-In, open to the public at no
charge ($5 auto parking fee).
EAA Chapters will continue to have a large role this year with
the inclusion of Young Eagle
Flights, Wings Seminars, and the annual EAA Chapter vs. Chapter
This year the Chapter Competition will include 1)
traditional Aircraft Judging, 2)
Flight Competitions (a Spot Landing and Bomb Drop contest), 3) Plus
additional points will be awarded to Chapters providing Young Eagles
The winning Chapter will be awarded a
1st Place Photo/Plaque and Prize Money, which
at $350 for 2016 plus,
for the first time, the 2nd Place Chapter will be awarded
$100! All Competitors and
Young Eagle Aircraft (and their passengers) will receive a
free breakfast voucher
courtesy of Golden West. A
Saturday Fly-Out with a free breakfast and a fund raiser for your
Chapter….sounds like a winner to me!
As an additional bonus, Golden West will be providing a fuel
discount for all aircraft attending this year’s Fly-In.
