People are up for the 40 minute Drive to Sister Bay
Or, local family favorite “Scaturo’s” in Sturgeon Bay
Near airport and Potawatomi St. Park, if we didn’t get bike riding in Yesterday..

Afternoon : Departure…..








You don't want to miss this!!!

Basically ' a 3 day weekend during the fall season of Door County'....
We'll have a welcome/burger cookout, but rooms etc will be on your own.
Remember that this is a "MINI' Event, so the MBS/Henry is taking minimal responsibility for finances/food
I am MORE THAN HAPPY to help with hotels, etc, but there is no 'central MBS coordination'
*  Nice downtown Egg Harbor Motel:   https://www.thelandingresort.com/
*  Quaint, down the road 'looks like a Midwest version of 'Dirty Dancing' resort: http://www.alpineresort.com/

Depending on how big of a commitment we get, we are willing to make the deposit for something like a "Trolley bus Wine Tour", but will be less committed to things like horseback riding that we are more than happy to provide transportation to, but will back off on deposit/finances for. Ditto for nearby and excellent Golf course!

I have a house and a minivan up in Egg Harbor.
We can set up a "Welcome Center" in the FBO Friday afternoon/evening.

Someone could take the van and go shopping if they don't want to do the wine tour, kind of thing.
I'm open for ideas!

This is the PDF I've put together for ideas and a suggested itinerary.

Details: $15pp 'Registration' to cover cheese, etc.
Use the ACTIVITIES section a) to register/pay your $15, but mostly b) to 'show of hands' for who MIGHT be interested in Trolley tour, horseback riding, Park tours, etc.  Rather than me sifting through emails, this gives me a nice report of 'who is interested in what'.  The prices listed are estimates that you would pay directly to the Trolley/Stable, not MBS and are there for reference..

This is an 'adjunct' to Sandy's "Come visit us in Shelbyville - just S of Nashville" post (below)

Let's see if we can make a weekend out of it!
This is a 'MINI event" which means that the MBS is not doing any formal registration/money-taking.
We are just coordinating.
Interested?
Nashville is a BLAST!
Sandy has organized 'official' trips to Nashville for the SE Bonanza Group in the past that were a BIG HIT, but let's start out small and do this as a 'mini' event, and take it from there.
One note: If you have never been to Nashville/Ryman/GrandOlOpry, you GOTTA get this on your bucket list!
Interested:
Here's what you do:
1) Just click on SIGN ME UP
2) Then we'll coordinate with you the hotels/events/ that we can meet up for!
That simple!

Historic Chattanooga !!!


Event type: Mini
Airport ID: KCHA
Location: Central Kentucky
How long: 1-2 days
Start time: Friday evening?
Time zone: CT
Event place URL: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g54946-Activities-Chattanooga_Tennessee.html
Event resort URL: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g54946-Chattanooga_Tennessee-Hotels.html

It's a competition with Nashville for this weekend!
Presuming most people are '6 of one, 1/2 dozen of the other..' when it comes to ' a fun place that we've never been to before...' and each within 30 minute flight of the other, let's see if more folks w/b interested in Chattanooga this weekend, or Nashville - we'll go to whichever one becomes the most popular. Ok, here's the Chattanooga pitch!

Historic Chattanooga is the home of beautiful - some would say 'undiscovered' riverfront beauty and the source of numerous civil war sites, being on the North/South dividing line. Southern hospitality and cuisine, but with OUT the hustle and crowds of Nashville (whose promo I also wrote! :))
Laid back, beautiful, educational - what more could you ask for, for a weekend with the hubby/wife and maybe even kids? 

Apparently, there IS such a thing as the "Chattanooga Choo Choo!" ( https://www.choochoo.com/ )  <-- HOTEL Room  and/or Restaurant!!!
AND "Ruby Falls " (an underground waterfall under Lookout Mountain (https://www.rubyfalls.com/ )

I will set up something with The Landing Resort in 'downtown' Egg Harbor for accommodations, but there will probably not be any 'volume' discount, reserved block, etc..
I have a house and a minivan up in Egg Harbor.

If there is enough interest, we will negotiate discount pricing for the Chairman's Hospitality Tent at the Race grounds

100% Matching Donations by an anonymous donor!!!!
If you ever said "I oughta help those in need....", here's your chance to not only do that, but ALSO HAVE SOMEONE ELSE DOUBLE  YOUR DONATION!!!!


Every day the phone rings at Angel Flight Central and someone in the Midwest, desperate and scared, shares their story. In all of these calls, Point A and Point B are seemingly insurmountable distances apart with no means for travel.

The quiet, yet significant, need for charitable aviation is enormous when you consider that any of us could become quickly overwhelmed with expenses and stress in the event of a family crisis that involves a need to travel. A general aviation pilot is often our passenger’s last hope due to their geographic location and medical condition as much as their strained financial situation.

By leveraging our resources to arrange transportation through volunteer pilots as well as other aviation resources, we are coordinating an average of five successfully completed missions every day for children and adults in need of accessing life-saving distant medical treatment. Disaster response and compassion missions are also included in our scope of services.

Through AFC’s linking relationships with collaborating organizations, 
approximately 24,000 charitable non-emergency missions take flight annually!

Your financial support is what allows Angel Flight Central to continue its matching service between unique aviation resources and urgent community needs. Join us in “giving hope wings” by enjoying a great day of golf at Prairie Landing! All tournament proceeds will be matched by an anonymous donor in 2017!

Solar Eclipse: NEW Sites -Carbondale is now CLOSED


Event type: Micro
Airport ID: KMDH
Location: Southern Illinois (Carbondale)
How long: 1
Start time: Eclipse is at 1
Time zone: CST
Event place URL: https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com/?gclid=CPen3NzZuNMCFUi2wAodpjYA4Q
Event resort URL: http://www.siairport.com/

If you have not pre-registered at Carbondale, it is too late to do so now.
You will need to find another airport   And as a public airport, ATC cannot turn you down.  First come, first serve.

To help you plan alternates, here's the path, using ICAO airport identifiers as the 'line' that you can draw on Foreflight/FlyQ/etc to look for nearby alternate airports
Below the airports i choose to 'draw a line', with the time of Total Eclipse. The eclipse begins about  1.5 Hrs before totality
KGRI   Grand Island, NI   1:00 CDT
KSTJ    St. Joseph, MO    1:10 CDT
KMDH  Carbondale, IL     1:21 CDT
KHVC  Hopkinsville, KY   1:27 CDT
KSRB   Sparta TN            1:30 CDT
I am NOT recommending these as airports to go to, just that THESE airports will 'draw a line for you' of the total path, from which you can then choose your airport :)
and from a PWK (Chicago Executive) member: Metropolis, IL (M30) airport has nothing planed so there should be plenty of room. 

, anywhere less than 20
miles from the centerline of the eclipse should not compromise our experience
meaningfully.  The path of totality in our part of the country is 71 miles
wide (and doesn’t vary that much elsewhere).  SIU/Murphysboro Airport is
less than 11 miles north the centerline and only 3.6 seconds less of totality
than at Makanda, which is right on the centerline.  Of course, right at
the edge of the path, as seen on maps, totality will be a brief flash, not
worth traveling.  Chester, though not towered, has a 1-1/2-mile long, 



The partial eclipse will begin at 11:52 a.m. and end at 2:47 p.m.  Totality will begin at 1:21 p.m.

From Lorn Honey ============================================================================================

Metropolis, IL (M30) airport has nothing planed so there should be plenty of
room.   Anyone wanting to stop by can watch the event from the ramp.
  Me.  I plane on watching from my lawn chair in the back yard.
  Metropolis is just across the river from Paducah, KY.  Both areas
are in the total eclipse coverage.   Paducah's Barkely airport is very
busy (KPAH) but still may have some room.   If anyone is flying into
either of these airports you can call me right after the event if you wish and
I will come out.  (270-443-4919).   At Metropolis there is no
transportation from the airport to town but usually anyone at the airport will
be glade to give a person a lift.  Motels in the are have been booked for
weeks and rooms are going for $700 / night and you have to book for three days.
 If anyone gets stranded at either M30 or KPAH you can give me a call and
you can stay at our house if necessary.  I will be leaving in the morning
for Chicago to pick up the Grandkids so they can come down and  watch the
event.   I will be back on Saturday, 8/19/17.

From Dave MacAllister (Poplar Grove), from HIS FRIEND, Ed Myers:
=====================================
Ed Myers says: 

It appears that Carbondale, IL (KMDH) is not accepting any more aircraft for the eclipse. If you do not already have a reservation, do not go to KMDH.

Here is a list of airports I have put together as potential alternates. These are all uncontrolled airports that advertise that fuel is available.

As always, check NOTAMs before flight and consider contacting the airport you decide to fly to before departing to be sure that they can accommodate you.

And, if you get any pictures while you're there, please post them to the Chapter 1414 Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/EAA1414/


Take Care,

Ed Myers
