Race To Ridgeland [R2R]
This year we've moved the date of our annual fly-in to Saturday, the 11th of November [Veterans Day]. You won't be watching Pro Football that weekend---due to the NFL Veteran's Day boycott [!], so...you might as well fly into Ridgeland Airport [3J1] and enjoy some exciting grass roots flying.
This is your official "one month" notice to put this event on your calendar. Here is our official event description, just to back it up:
"The "Race To Ridgeland" fly-in will occur this year on Veteran's Day, Saturday, 11 November, 2017 with events beginning at 9:00 am. The Race To Ridgeland is free to all attendees and is a traditional county airport/local style fly-in conducted to promote and celebrate grass roots aviation. The "R2R" will feature a light aircraft race, spot landing contest, helicopter candy drop for kids, radio control model aircraft flying, and much more. Food and drink will be available for sale but otherwise, there will be no charge for attending. Regional aircraft owners and pilots are genuinely encouraged to fly in and to participate in any and all of the scheduled events. The public is invited but is of course, advised that children and pets must be kept under full parental control at all times. Scheduled events will be conducted until 3:00 pm but flying and aviation camaraderie will of course continue until the departure of the last aircraft."
Thanks for considering attending...we're going to have a great time!
