West Coast Regional Fly-In - Harris Ranch, CA - May 4, 2013

Last May we held our first West coast "Regional" Fly-In: a one-day affair with lunch at the Harris Ranch. Seven TMGs and two power planes. A great time was had by all, with fabulous food, a lovely facility, and a short stroll to the restaurant from the Airport.

We're planning on doing it again this year - May 4th - at 12:30 for the chow bell. We'll again have our own section of the restaurant. If anyone wants to make a longer time of it, Paso Robles is just over the hill to the west. Several of us are thinking of spending the night at either the Harris Ranch, or cheaper motels across the street. For those staying over, we might spend the afternoon flying over the to Avenal glider port, about 10 minutes flying time to the south west of Harris Ranch. There's typically good soaring in the foothills. I'm not sure what they're doing for dinner there, but I'll check it out if there's any interest. Of course, there's always the opportunity to have another "small" meal at the Harris Ranch, or a local Denny's. Check out photo's from last year in the Gallery.

So, sign up in the Events tab > Future Events section, and let's party!

Please pass this along to any of your flying friends.

Seven aircraft and 17 people descended on the Harris Ranch, California to have lunch at one of the best steak houses in the state (no, there were no three-place TMG's; the extra's came in power aircraft...but all were TMGA members). Attendees came from both the Sacramento and Los Angeles areas, plus the Sierra foothills.

A great time was had by all and two hours sped by. See pictures in the Gallery.

If there are TMG'ers in your area (region), use the Map and organize a lunch Fly-In at a central location. With the TMGA website capabilities, it's a relatively simple undertaking.

Regards,

Richard Pearl
