This location would be ideal for a fly-in and even better for an RV gathering with kids or Young Eagles event.
The playground is outstanding! I take my son there every so often for lunch (It is just a few miles from home) and every New Years day, weather permitting.
When we do YE flights, we typically leave from the east side of the runway as it is easier to control the YE riders from the general public, which can be a big safety issue.
A couple years back, the LancAir guys had their fly-in there. I just happened to stop in for lunch on the way home and was surprised to see a ramp full of LancAirs. It crushed me a little bit when one of them had an issue and no one brought tools or even knew how to work on their planes.
Snopercod, where you?
RV-9 (Yes, it's a dragon tail)

Build the plane you want, not the plane others want you to build!
