Saturday, May 14th, 2016 Pancake Breakfast Fly-In

 Location: Haddock Field, Erick, OK


We had six visitors, Dean Vaughn, Hunter McGuire, Stone Oren, Shayla Sutton, Damian Hartpence, and Brian Zinn.  Dean drove in from Cheyenne. Damian and Brian flew their Cherokee 180 from Wiley Post. 


Members In Attendance: Dave Hill, Earl & Nancy Reed, Issac King, Todd & Joyce Sutton, Ricky Laster, Dusty Lowarance, Ben Tignor, and Troy Carpenter,


So what happended?

It was cold and windy but the food and friendship were great.  Thanks goes out to everyone at Erick for making our fly-in a success.  Special thanks goes out to Todd & Joyce for providing food and cooking.  Also thanks goes out to Nancy for helping cook.

I did it again.  I forgot to put out donation jar.

I briefly shared a little about my recent trip to Oshkosh for the Leadership Training Academy.  It was awesome.  In particular I want to share just how awesome the EAA Young Eagle program is and that there is a lot of money available for Young Eagle Flight Training Scholarships.

Coming Up:

Our June 2016 event will  be volunteering our services to help the City of Hobart, OK with their annual Celebration of Freedom Fly-in on Saturday June 18th.

We will be helping direct aircraft ground traffic and assist with the pancake breakfast.  The Pancake Breakfast and Fly-in start at 7:30 and we need to be there about 1/2 hour early which means we need to leave Elk City for Hobart by 6:15 am.  We will meet at the Elk City Airport, hangar #14 at 6 am to organize flying down and car pooling.

2016 AIRVENTURE:  2016 AirVenture at Oshkosh is coming quickly. It would be great if we could get a group of people to go together. I promise you it will change your life and you will have a blast. Let me know if you are planning on going.  It looks like we will be camping. 


Thanks guys for showing up. Meeting with you all is the most fun I have all month.




Dave Hill
