Greetings fellow Canardians
It's not too early to start planning your visit to the 8th annual Canards West at Columbia Airport in N. California.
If you have not visited Columbia you are missing an experience. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains it is a jewel not to be missed.
It is a short walk to the old gold mining town of Columbia which has been preserved as it was in the heyday of the 49ers Gold Rush .
The town has good restaurants and an authentic hotel from the gold mining period..
The camp ground at the airport has clean toilets and hot showers and a clubhouse that we will be using for presentations and the Saturday evening dinner.
The last 7 Fly Ins have been a great success and we intend this year's to reset the standard.

Canards West at Columbia
June 22, 23 & 24th 2012

Although there is no charge to attend the Flyin, to cover operating expenses there is a charge for the Saturday June 23rd dinner in the clubhouse.
The charge for this is $25, this covers the dinner with desert, wine, beer and sodas.It also covers all the expenses for the event. You will have to pay a camping fee and an overnight tie down fee. These are Columbia airport fees payable to the county.The tie down fee is $4 and the camping fee is $8 which includes the tie down.These fees will be collected at registation.When you have parked your aircraft be sure to register to collect a meal ticket, pay tie down/ camping fees and to get the latest seminar schedule.
Although there are adequate facilities within 1 mile radius of the airport if you want a broader choice of resturants you will have to go into Sonora.
If you decide to do this you will need transport. Now is the time to get together and consider renting a car

I would appreciate you sending in your $25 as soon as you know you are attending. I am working with a caterer and numbers for dinner are required ahead of the event to allow the caterer to purchase supplies.Check on the dinner link below for details.
