Run: A poker run in your aircraft for
Friday the 11th, leaving TVI at 5:00 PM (1700 or 2100UTC). The poker run will be short but give you
the opportunity to see some south Georgia landscape and visit some nice
airports nearby. We will allow plenty
of time even at Cub speed to be back in TVI before dark. There will be a nice
prize for the best hand.
Candy Drop for the kids is always a big hit; join the fun Saturday at 2:30
PM. Thank you, Tallahassee Helicopters!

Landing Contest: This year a spot
landing contest will be held, traffic permitting; we will work hard to make
it work. We have had a lot of requests
for this. Rules will change for this
year’s spot landing contest. In years
past, pilots would power up to the line, chop power, and bounce off the
runway, not really landing. This year
a real landing will be required. Close
the throttle when spot is directly off left wing tip and do a 180 degree
power off approach. You may clear the
engine one short burst before reaching short final. Short final will be 100
feet before reaching end of runway. You must cross the line with all three landing
gears on the ground; nearest the line wins.
Next time you fly, practice this!
Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3 places.
We will continue to provide
shuttle service to/from town for those who need it.
