This from Ray Peterson, our Safety: Guy

The TFR is only Sunday, however you should stay away from the race track the entire weekend because of the crowd.    Note that the TFR extends inside the KCBS  towers (at Gnoss Field).   Maintain a downwind no more than a mile from the runway, if you are going to KDVO.

Displa Day (and fly-out)

This Sat 21 Jun. is a Display Day at Petaluma Airport.

However, your Humble Web Master got this from Ed “the banker” Steiger for your consideration:

Fellow Aviators – Willits (O28) is holding their annual “Pigs Fly-In” on 21 June and I thought it a reasonable
idea to support them in the best way possible – FLY-IN! This message has been forwarded this to most of the
Chapters in the N. California region and now it is your responsibility to get it out to your members.
See for all the details. Aviate, Dave Walters, EAA 512, Placerville
