    Default RANS Fly-in???????????

    Hey guys. Starting this thread looking for feedback and comments. I'm not sure if any of you have ever attended the RV gathering on the mountain at Petit Jean in Arkansas but if so you know it's an amazing event. I've been going a few years and a few weeks ago while watching everyone interact and rekindle relationships that have been formed over the years it hit me we should have a similar event for us RANS FANS!!!!

    Consider this the preliminary announcement of the "1st Annual RANS FANS Gathering". The exact dates are still in discussion but it will be sometime in May of 2018 and held at 23AR in northeast Arkansas. The event will be 3 days and will include lots of great food, games, giveaways, awards, aircraft judging, fly outs, and most importantly hanging out with new and old friends. I have been talking to Shelly and RANS is fully behind me on this and going to assist with promoting and elsewhere as needed. This will be a no-charge event and I will only ask for donations by the attendees to help offset food cost. I run one of the most popular BBQ trailers around here and I will promise amazing food throughout the weekend. Camping will be available at the airport and I will have transportation to a local hotel for those who prefer more comfort.

    My question to you guys is this. Who would be interested in attending such an event. I would love to make this a yearly event held here or even hosted by other RANS FANS around the country!

    Thoughts?

    I knew I could count on you Glenn. Question is how are you going to get your 20 and your 19 both up here.

    Chicago would be doable in a 12. Probably 6 hours. Another option would be a cummuter flight on airchoiceone. They fly caravans and Jonesboro is a hub. You could do Chicago to St. Louis to Jonesboro for around $100. I can pick you up at KJBR it's only 6 miles from 23AR.

    May is light years away in my world, but the schedule is clear so far. Count me as a hopeful yes. I’ll probably have to hitchhike my way there.

    Sounds Great; If I can get my 20 completed and hours flown off, could be the first trip for the wife and I.
