Default Reno 2017

With Reno fast approaching, I'm looking forward to meeting many VAF members and others there on Saturday and Sunday. I'll be hanging around the Sport Class pits near Andy Findlay's orange Stihl Lancair (Race 30) a lot. Look for the guy with the SDS T shirt and feel free to tap me on the shoulder.

There will be some new entries in Sport Class which is good to see.

Should be a great time!

Cool, would be good to meet up with you again Mike. I'll try to make it to the BBQ. I have a list of about 13 people to meet up with this year so far. Looking forward to it.

I'll be there from Wednesday thru Sunday. Even tho I grew up around the Shafter Skunk Works, this will be my first year hitting Reno. Super stoked.

I'll look for you. I emailed you about the SDS system for my -4. Want to pick your brain some more.

You guys know of any hangar or tie down space at Stead or International? Will be there Fri thru Monday. I've been in contact with Atlantic Aviation at RNO. Trying to find out their daily rate for a RV-4. Regardless of that, they are charging a $75 special event fee if you stay between the 13th and 18th. Hoping not to get gouged on the daily rate...

Carson City might be a better bet but maybe hard to rent a car now from there.

Odds of flying into Stead are low. I haven't read the NOTAM yet but I'm pretty sure it's closed from morning until early evening when everything shuts down for the day. Nowhere to park unless you have some pull or know someone with a hangar and space from what I gather. Atlantic Aviation at RNO is taking reservations. I made one last night. $75 special event fee plus overnight fees is what I received in an email after reserving online. I replied trying to see what the daily overnight fee will be and if there are any waivers with fuel purchase. No reply yet...
