From Larry Vetterman....

Badlands flyin is scheduled for Sept 8-11 at Hot Springs, SD (HSR). We are including an extra day as there are two additional events scheduled this year. Arrive Thurs. South of the Border buffet at one of our great restaurants. We will have the complete upper floor to ourselves.

Friday. bus trip to Mount Rushmore and Keystone, or Walt Aranow has agreed to bring his prop balancing machine, so if your engine has a little vibration, get it balanced by the best while you are here. We will have the grill fired up for burgers or hot dogs at the airport on Fri. Evening - Pulled pork meal along with your favorite beverage at Vetterman's hangar. Last year one attendee, whose name will not be mentioned did his best to empty the beer cooler, so this year we are prepared for him.

Saturday, fly the Black Hills, ie. Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Spearfish Canyon, Devils Tower, Bear Butte, Wall (lunch at Wall) fly the Badlands and return to Hot Springs. Saturday evening meal at Allen Ranch -choice of steak or salmon. This was a huge success last year.

Transportation- There will be buses running all weekend long from the airport to the motels.

Food, Just a reminder to call or email us to let us know if you are coming, how many there are, and if you would like steak or salmon at the cookout. The chief cook does not want any one to go away hungry and he needs to know how many steaks to round up and how many salmons to catch.
