I have been to busy trying to sustain my aviation hobby that I neglected the feedback on this site.
All is in place. Avgas and Mogas food and drink. Airfield and camping facilities. Ons is lus vir die ding.

Seems like we will have more campers this year. Ablutions with showers for ladies and gents. The gents shower is now inside not the breezy army style we had in the past.

Food and drink available from Friday midday until sunday breakfast bun
Friday evening we will have soup and braai.
Saturday evening prize giving and braai with all the extras
Sunday morning basic breakfast roll and coffee on the run.

ATC will be active from Friday midday on 120.20
FANY
runway 10/28 1200m and wide enough for the nose draggers. elevation 3950.
you can fly as much as you want to all weekend long.
and for the lurkers this is not an airshow it is an event for pilots to come and have fun. Very much the same as a gholf day but for real men :wink:

If you don't enjoy it you have yourself to blame 8)
for any info call or whatsapp me. The day of the event my phone is very busy so I prefer if you ask your questions before then.
And yes the weather will be fine. This is Nylstroom the weather is like us mostly nice. :wink:
