Rough River Canard Fly-In


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out how to get there. Not a problem w/scheduling, but flights to Backwoods Airport are a handful of $$$.

 

I am doing my best to get myself there... Posted Image

I was referring to Owensboro, KY, which is ~35 miles away and a $551 commercial flight. Commercial into Louisville is $280 and ~55 miles away (I understand a 90-minute trip). Looks like I'll be flying into Louisville. :cool:

Hey,

 

Anyone know if there are any Aero Canards showing up???

We are in the "what plans do I want to build stage" I like the room I may get with the Aero Canard and would like a looksee. I am brining the bride and these things are important :) I'll also be interested in any Rotary Turbo'd machines.

 

See Ya There

I hope so, since I'm building one. :)

 

I'm flying in commercial, sharing a rental car w/Jerry Schneider and Larry Wimble, but have no idea where I'm staying other than I'm bringing my tent, toothbrush, and soap.

Now that was fun! Outside of the pizzazzle of Sun-n-Fun (not mentioning my transportation there) and what I guess would be the craziness of Osh, this event has my vote as THE must-see fly-in of the year for canard enthusiasts.

 

I'll upload a few more pics to my Web site when I can, but in the meantime I attached a shot of Jack Morrison saying "goodbye" by going 1,000mph down the runway in his supercharged ERacer.

 

*Also, to stir the snipe out for the retracts vs. fixed gear debate, pictures like this are one of the reasons why you get retracts. ;)

Due to increased fuel prices I suggest we start now and chime out who is going. Maybe we can attract those by car/plane pooling to those who otherwise had decided to not go this year. My vehicle is now full of passengers. Who else is willing?

 

It would be great if we could show our brotherhood/sisterhood of Canardians during difficult times and break last year's record.

I am going, this year with my wife, and am dragging another builder w/his wife to spend 2 nights in the luxurious town of Falls of Rough.

 

I had no problem keeping busy nonstop last year, but I have no idea how to pull this one off.

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm looking for a room at the Rough River lodge, :cool: that perhaps someone may have reserved and for some reason decided they weren't going to make it. Anyone who has a room reserved with a change in plans, give me a shout, I'ld be happy to get those reservations. :envy:

 

Thanks,

Rod (and anyone else looking for lodging), the weather looks great for camping!

 

Looking forward to meeting everyone there!

 

I too am NOT in the lodge.

Looks like I'll be landing in Louisville at 9:00 AM on Friday. I'll have a car full of 4 people, so I'll catch up w/everyone at the field.

 

I've been on the phone with the lodge daily since last week.

You can get a local room here.

 

See you, and everyone else, there!
