Default Fly-out Friday after Thanksgiving LULU's - Gulf Shores, AL KJKA

Howdy Airplane People!!!!

Coming up next month I am inviting you to fly to Gulf Shores, AL for the day!!! In the past years we have had a great turnout of airplanes and lots of fun. I have confirmed the Restaurant will be open.

Airport: KJKA
Date: November 24, 2017
Time: All day Ė Lunch suggested time ~11:30am local
Place: Luluís Restaurant
Fun: Everywhere
Who: Anyone interested in airplanes,
You will need to plan your own transportation from the airport.

Some like to walk it is only about 1 mile from Salt Air and 0.6 mile from Gulf Air Center. In the past the FBOís have helped shuttle but you need to check in with them.

There is no planned program and sometimes the group is large enough that we get split up at Luluís and do not even get to meet everyone. If you have suggestions to help us get to meet each other, make it known.

I will post this on several aviation boards. Feel free to distribute to your aviation friends.
