Thursday evenings: (April –September) Training 6pm to 8pm

 

More. On Wednesday mornings 9-10am, other than above, it is suggested some pilots also fly those Wednesdays, to insure that they will not be alone at the field for safety, etc…..

 

OT - At Old Timer & Sept 16 events, lunch will be available with a donation requested.

Refresher instruction is for those who have not flown recently, want help or are beginners.

 

Float Flys - The budget includes $15-20 to subsidize chase boats. However, at the last float fly, with Bob Turner doing the chase boat, he firmly said he didn’t want any money for this. He had his boat/trailer fixed to go….. June 23 depends on advance observation of other lake activities on Tuesday evenings.

 

2019 - Tom V used his weed eater again to cut grass, etc east of the parking lot & around dock area for pit areas….. City provided picnic tables for Float Flys (when needed given 2-3 days notice via e-mail to City Maintenance Foreman II, Bill Andersen)….. To avoid conflict, a kayaking club was notified via e-mail (woggworks@yahoo.com or 402-660-4819) in Jan -Feb when the FFs were scheduled. The City Parks scheduler, Brenda Paul, was also notified then of the float flys.)
