Currently it appears Friday is going to be a good day. Therefore, all the speaking, give-a-ways, bonfire, the cookout, and random fun stuff will happen that evening. And yes, the Rascals of Ragtime band will be here too!
Saturday is cancelled due to weather. We will not have food on hand on Saturday, but, if anyone shows up Friday and plans to camp through to Sunday, we’ll make runs to town for food. Sunday is not cancelled.
As for the people who have asked if we could postpone the event until another weekend, we’ve already committed to $5000 worth of vendor support. This is spent, event or not. That’s not counting the dollars it takes to get the place ready. OR, put a different way, when you’re half way through building a new home, you can’t expect the builder to put it on a different lot.
If there is no way to make it due weather, feel free to help out by clicking here to bid on some of the great products our sponsors have contributed.
That’s all we have for now. Thanks for your ongoing support. Watch www.leebottom.com for other possible updates.
Please remember our sponsors. When events are affected by weather, so are they. We will never forget all the companies and individuals who have supported us through the years.
Revision: It appears some are going to show up and camp anyway. Four planes have arrived today (Thursday), with more daylight left. Therefore, although technically cancelled, it looks like we'll be doing a very stripped down version of the fly-in on Saturday. Stripped down means we'll all be figuring out how to make it work, running to town for food if there are enough people to warrant it, watching movies, and or telling BS stories. As one friend said, "The best memories are made when things go to sh_t." Additionally, if you want to car camp, we'll do our best to find places for you - most likely up on the field. But, you should bring food as we've cancelled nearly all the Saturday food. If you want to come spend the weekend roughing it, feel free to do so. Please remember though, it will not be much more than camping at an airport.
