Registration begins at 8:00, and flights are normally conducted from 8:30 until noon.  As available slots tend to fill up quickly, an early arrival is suggested.

August 18 (Saturday) - Chapter Breakfast Fly-out

For the June fly-out Saturday June 16h we plan to fly to Tri County Regional airport at Lone Rock WI. The identifier is KLNR, it has a runway 9/27 with 5000’ of good asphalt, and for you STOL guys it has a much shorter crosswind runway – 18/36 with 1850’ available. Distance from Lake in the Hills is 103 NM on a 313 track.
This airport is in a nice valley with the Wisconsin River on the South, a range of hills on the North and the home of Frank Lloyd Wright to the East.
The attraction there is Piccadilly Lillies Restaurant on the airport at the NW end ramp, so let us plan to arrive at KLNR at about 9:30 AM that should give us enough time to get the airplanes squared away and walk to the place.
The FBO is Tri-County Airport; 100LL price is presently $ 4.38 – do plan to buy some fuel there.
Please call or email if you are planning to come, or need a ride, or have extra seats. This is of some importance if we want to sit together. My contact # is 847 639-5408 or cell 847 826-1935 or oleeva@sbcglobal.net.
If weather is a problem, we will meet at the Colonial Restaurant in Crystal Lake at 9:00 AM; if you have indicated that you are coming, I will call you in event of cancellation. (Or if in doubt you can call my cell)
Keep the blue side upWe established last year that the third Satur-day of the month would be the day for a fly-out; This does not work for July because Oshkosh starts that same weekend. But July 14th has no known issues, so that is going to be the date for the fly-out. We used to fly to Ja-nesville for breakfast quite often. But the res-taurant there has been closed for quite some time. They are working on it, but It is not ex-pected to open till August – I am told. Howev-er, there is a nice restaurant at the nearby Glen Erin Golf Club – it is only about a half mile from the Jet Center on the south-east ramp. We could walk that far, or bicycle – or the Jet Center will run us over there. The res-taurant does not open till 11:00 AM, so let us meet at Janesville Jet-Center on the 14th at 10:30 – 10:45 AM, and proceed to the Glen Erin Golf Club. They do not serve breakfast, so the menu is a lunch menu. If you are driving there, the address is 1417 W. Airport Rd. Ja-nesville.
