I have created a Whatapp group for those attending Nylstroom Taildraggers to ensure we keep track of those flying and driving.
The tradgedy of Claus and Mavine in the Taylorcraft could have had a better outcome if we had known earlier that they were overdue at Verreniging.

Could I fly in Saturday for lunch, or do you want to keep ad-hoc arrivals down during the event?

Just keep eyes open and listen out. Lots of aircraft, slow and fast, at the same time. Great fun!! Frequency very busy, keep RT as short and clear as possible.

break-break:

Paul, how is the WhatsApp group doing? Very good idea. Perhaps you should repeat the post? Can we join when we depart from home-base and not days ahead? Will the ATC have access to this group to know who to expect at what time?

Justin no problem to fly as and when you like.
Rotorkop the only restriction will be chopper ops between the parked fixed wings for obvious reason but you being a sensible guy I know that you will be considerate. My nr has always been o82 49O 6227. Network not always very supportive though.
