Get ready for STEAK! One of California's best steak houses is at the Harris Ranch, which has its own airstip (308). We're planning a lunch fly-in for May 12, 2012 to enjoy the food and camaraderie. We're hopeful that this can be coordinated with the Carat group's fly-in, which might stretch out over a few days. I attended their fly-in two years ago.
The facility is readily flyable from both northern and southern California, and is located in the Great Valley immediately alongside Highway 5 at Coalinga (San Francisco sectional). 2,820 X 30 runway; field elevation 470 ft. There are some nearby obstructions (power lines) so check a directory. There is a very nice hotel adjacent to the restaurant/airport if you're so inclined.
We've established a separate sign up sheet in the Events section. If you're a definite, obviously sign up; if you're a potential, check that box.
Please encourage your TMG buddies to attend. As the list develops it might be fun to "team fly" to the event. We're in the process of developing a Member Map and this will be helpful in setting up a flying caravan. We'd like to schedule arriving around 11:00 or 11:30. Depending on the size of the group we might be able to get a separate section of the restaurant, so sign-ups are important for planning.
If you have any thoughts on the event, please post them here.
