    Hay Clippedwing,

    I read your post on "Classic Right Tank Fuel Starvation" and your last line is a great one "Now letís put together a west coast, Pacer fly in somewhere!". I would like to volunteer Kern Valley Airport "L05" as the unofficial location for the unofficial Fly-in. (remember the COVID-19 thing). It's centrally located, grass to camp on, a river 100-yards off, a lake a little farther, a great tourist town, and a push-over for an airport manager, I have have him in my pocket.

    Let me know what y'all think.

    Sure good idea, yet it has been my past experience over the years, that most short wing folks for whatever reason do not like to fly very far, so attendance may be limited. Plus with average age of this short wing group, many may not want to mingle with others.
    I am not being negative, just trying to avoid a lot of work on your part and no one shows.

    I will gladly come from the Seattle area.

    Thank you for presenting this to the group.

    It’s about an hour from So cal, that shouldn’t deter anyone (for the flying aspect.) The other part, I won’t speak to because it just pisses me off.

    I'm in! L05 is a great place for a gathering. There's a pretty good gaggle of shortwings at TSP so it's just a short hop to Kernville

    I will absolutely be there... next year! That is as long as I have my license by then and my plane flys.
