June 22nd 2019 - Saturday 10:00 AM
Where: Bernie's Farm
Our June monthly meeting is moved to Saturday as Bernie will host a fly-in at his farm.
Bernie's home has a nice airstrip, so we encourage members to fly in. He has a hangar with several planes and projects in it - all of this situated on a beautiful lake.
Time: 10 am - 8 pm. Bernie asks that you please RSVP to him so he can plan on how many will be coming and how much food to have.
Address: 1501 S. Sylvan Rd Wasilla, AK 99654
About 1 hour from Merrill Field. (But well worth the drive!)
From the Parks Highway Take Sylvan Rd. south at the intersection with Pittman Rd. (which goes north).
Fly-in information: Bernie's airstrip is "AK45", which depicts on ForeFlight but not on the sectional. The strip is 06-24, 2,200' x 50' turf. This is only 2 miles SW of Wasilla (PAWS), so watch for traffic in their pattern. If your airplane would require landing at Wasilla, call Bernie at: (907) 301-2666 and he will have someone pick you up there.
July 3rd 2019 - Wednesday 7:00 PM
Where: Las Margaritas
Join us at Las Margaritas Mexican & Italian Restaurant at 541 W Dimond Blvd (on the north side of Dimond between Arctic and C Streets). When you walk in, turn left into the front room that is separated from the main dining area and we'll be on the right. So come, get your margarita and nachos and we will talk about aviation and maybe do some Chapter business. As always, all Chapter 42 members are invited and encouraged to attend.
