Title: Kanab EZ Fly-In Update
Post by: Joe Dubner on September 04, 2010, 02:59:38 PM
Yesterday after 5 hours of flying in a straight line describing diagonals of Oregon and Nevada, my blond ballast (Harriet) and I arrived at Kanab (KKNB).  (Flight track:http://tinyurl.com/2fs8dg4 (http://tinyurl.com/2fs8dg4))

This is what the ramp looked like at about noon today:

More EZ arrived after this was taken including Marc and Deanie Zeitlin, Tom and Myla Jewitt, and a fair number of others whom I did not know.  A fourth row of parking (to the left in the picture) was being used.

Earlier in the day, Jim Price, Rob Martinsen, and Harriet and I flew out to St. George, UT (KSGU) for breakfast.  Flying back to Kanab I noted an O.A.T. of 73F at 8500 MSL.   Perfect weather for lounging around the pool at Aiken's Lodge for the afternoon until pizza and beer this evening.

Tomorrow there's a pancake breakfast on the airport, then the "timed event" (formerly known as "the race" http://www.mail2600.com/Kanab06/index.htm (http://www.mail2600.com/Kanab06/index.htm)), and then a dinner finale at Nedra's Mex/American restaurant.

Nice way to spend the Labor Day weekend.  Thank you Char and Gary Spencer for organizing things.

Thanks for your comments, flyingwaldo and Bruce.

I'm back home now after logging 12 hours flying time this weekend.  There were so many good activities that it is hard to decide what the best part of the fly-in was:

Char and Gary Spencer should receive kudos and our thanks for organizing this.  At first I was apprehensive about the travel distance but I'm very glad I went and am already counting the days until next year.
