IMPORTANT Fly-In Notes That Don't Fit Elsewhere.

The following items are important things to know and or things we hope you will enjoy or use:
There will be a charging station for cell phones and electronics during the fly-in.  It is being organized and run by instructors and students at the Shawnee Aviation Program.  It will be open on Friday from 5-7pm, Saturday 8-8, and Sunday 8-Noon.  We hope this is a useful service.  Be sure to let us know how it goes.
In recent years everyone has been getting rental cars and therefore nobody has been using the shuttle to local hotels.  Therefore, this year we are not having a shuttle this.  If you need one, let us know as soon as possible by email.
This year is the 100th Anniversary of the first air mail flight and we will be fortunate enough to have a 1928 mail plane on hand for it.  Look for the vintage Stearman by the Lee Bottom Family Member tent.  If you contributed to the airport operation fund this year (2011), be sure to stop by the tent to pick up some items that will recognize you as someone who made a special effort to see there is a future for this fine little airport.  Thanks again for your support.
We will once again have an ice chest on hand with bags of ice for sale. 
There are several new Lee Bottom Apparel items in the store we're sure you'll like.  All apparel sales revenue goes toward paying fly-in bills.  Therefore, any time the fly-in is over and we are out of shirts, caps, and sweatshirts it is a good thing.  Please take time to look through the store near registration to pick out something special for yourself or that special someone you left at home to feed the dog. 
Please be sure to Register.  Yes, when you register you also pay for your fly-in ticket.  But registering is also how you get on the list for the limited edition calendars and for airport updates.  Please do not attend without registering and paying.  The funds go directly to paying fly-in bills so that we can have another fly-in for you to enjoy.  No bucks, no Buck Rogers
Once again, there will be no fuel on hand at the fly-in.  Self-serve fuel is available seven miles north at Madison (IMS). 
If you want to see all the minute details on everything fly-in associated, please see the website.  There you will also find the suggested arrival procedures.
Some local guys will have a collection of old one lung engines and other assorted items on display down by the red brick house.  Please be sure to go down there and ask them to fire one up for you.  They love to show these things off and share them with others.
