We are starting this thread to keep all of the planning details for activities. Please participate, add questions, suggest activities, etc.

The 2011 TMG Fly-In was a roaring success. Twenty four (24) ships graced the flight line, including: Grob, Taifun, Ximango, Stemme, Lambada, Samba, Phoenix, Diamond, Pipistral, and Fournier. Aircraft came from California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Florida. Between pilots, friends, and prospective buyers, 40 people participated in the flying, presentations, and meals. We believe it is the largest gathering of TMG's in the country, and most likely the world. Five ships went on to Parowan, Utah to link up with the Auxiliary-powered Sailplane Association's annual soaring event.

Responding to suggestions, we are adding a day to the event this year, starting on Thursday July 12th and concluding on Sunday July 15th. Perfect weather is guaranteed! With an extra day we can organize a fly-out to an area airport for lunch. Besides, it is Minden, Nevada, with some of the best soaring conditions in the country, so let's take advantage of it.

SoaringNV will again be the on-site host, providing facilities (office/hangar for meetings), general logistics and soaring expertise. We'll also have presentations on topics of general interest: weather, soaring, and mechanical issues.

If you have any suggestions, please let us know. For those interested, you can link up with the ASA fly-in at Parowan, which is scheduled for July 2 – 12. We are also thinking of a side trip to Sedona.

... As long as you keep the lead cleaned out of the oil tank it won't hurt it. Rotax says ethanol up to 10% is okay. His concern with ethanol and Pipistrel
