The 16th through the 19th of June as best I can determine. I anticipate the Leadership of the NAA will be forthcoming with details presently.

Bummer......I thought it might be anywhere they have AWOS but I guess not. The closest to us is MSP.
Thanks anyway,
Mike

Anyone going to Middletown from the Pacific northwest? I`m considering flying my Champ from the Seattle/Tacoma area and would like to go with another Aeronca or two.

That would sure be a great trip Jim. Are you coming across the Rockies via Montana or via Arizona, Texas and across?
You would certainly get the farthest flown trophy!

It would be across the Rockies and Montana. It would be more fun with another Aeronca or two. I think if I left now, I would make it in time!

Richard Holcombe of Florence, Oregon regularly few that northern route to Oshkosh each year. He can share much information about the weather he's encountered and routes he has flown. I think it could be an easy one week trip here and another week getting back. :)

25 days until Middletown 2016

All my bags are packed
I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside the plane
I hate stand around to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin'
It's early morn
The Champ's a waitin'
It's fueled and warm
Already I'm so anxious
I could fly!
