Al Madero is planning our May fly-out to Ashland KS to visit the town and airport that was at the edge of the recent grass fires.
Ashland Airport, K58, had two grass fires, and is located SW near the Oklahoma border 115nm.
Ashland has The Harold Krier Field Aerobatic Museum housed in the Pioneer-Krier Museum. Harold Krier was a former national aerobatic champion. One of the aircraft that Krier built, as well as trophies and other memorabilia from his collection are on display in the museum.
Al has been in contact with the City of Ashland, and will be at the April KPA meeting to provide more information on the fly-out.
Al's idea is to meet in Ashland at 10:00 AM and has two possible dates for the fly-out (May 6 or May 20). Maybe we could set up a frequency for KPA to talk with each other on the flight to Ashland.
Butch Amey is in charge of the Annual Meeting and elections of Officers.
