Default R3 BBQ/Race Party

As usual, time flies when you're having fun. I've been having so much fun lately that I have almost forgot to get the R3 Race Party sign up going. So....... here she goes. As usual , Greg Arehart and I throw a little party at my hangar on Saturday night , after the last race jet lands. This year it happens on Sat, 16 Sep. The rules are to be invited to our hamburger/hot dog BBQ are; you must be flying a RV, building, a RV, or know someone who is flying or building a RV. I think I will expand that rigorous list of attendance requirements to include those who are really, really, thinking hard about buying a RV or building a RV. And as usual, I don't remember how to post a Google Earth picture of the location of my hangar, hopefully the good guy who has done it every year will do it again. Thanks in advance. If you haven't heard, there is scheduled to be 133 race aircraft this year, a bunch of highly modified RVs and 18 Unlimiteds. Should be a full week of high test fuel fumes in the air. For a head count, please reply to this post with who and the total number of people with you. I think the RV line is going to be across from my hangar row, the same as last year. Dan from Reno

I'll be in for sure - bringing two other gearheads with me. I've been parking my 9A at KCXP the last couple years, is there a better place? I won't be flying in until Thursday, so by that point Stead is pretty much already locked down, and KRNO is just so blasted busy with the biz-jets nobody wants to mess with the little guy.

Built an off-plan 9A with too much fuel and too much HP. Should drop dead any minute now.

CXP is about it South. O02 West, and N58 North. Carson has services and rental cars, Narvino has services but no transport, and Tiger Field has nothing but a fair-to-meddlin' runway. The choices are limited. There is Truckee, full services, but a little far away. Also if you leave your airplane parked there for very long, you may get a property tax bill mailed to your out-of-state address. Dan from Reno
