Fly-In Event and RV Rally August 2015


15 June 2015 21:35

Hello again, FMCA Fourminians!

The Rally Calendar entry is there in the FMC magazine, and in the FMCA app. However, the description is a bit short of details. So, here's what's >> really << coming up!

Grimes Field airport (FAA identifier India-7-4) in Urbana, Ohio is hosting an event called "MERFI" -- the Mid-Eastern Regional Fly-In. Kitbuilt aircraft, vintage aircraft, restored warbirds and just about anything else with wings and a power source are gathering there on the weekend of 21-23 August 2015.

There are "dry-camping" sites available for $10 during the Fly-In, but quite a few of the RV'ers I talked with said that they would prefer a powered site. I am therefore hosting the "MERFI's Law" Ohio Noamds Chapter Rally on 20-23 August. 30-and 50-ampere sites are available for us at the Champaign County Fairgrounds, south of mid-town Urbana, for US$20 per night. There will be a Saturday dinner with your choice of either bison burgers, freshwater fish tacos or veggie fajitas, and a Sunday party patterned after a USO show -- wine, beer, cheese, munchies and so forth. Wear your 1940's styles, or come in uniform.

A US$8 per person rally fee covers the food.

Motor coach or towable, FMCA members or not, there is space for you. Check out the Calendar page at ohionomads-dot-com, and visit merfiurbana-dot-com for information on the Fly-In. It's kind of like the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, or Warbirds Over Wanaka in New Zealand -- just more up close and personal, and a heck of a lot less expensive!

"Happy Cybercamping!"
