Old Farts Arcadia (X06)
Fish Fry Reminder & Update

For Thursday, April 14th, 2022… 

Old Farts...

Tomorrow… Thursday, April 14th is our Fish Fry at Arcadia (X06). We are being hosted by EAA Chapter 66. I currently have 52 aircraft and 94 people on my list for Lunch. We have food for a few more, so if you’d like to sneak in a late reservation, please use the RSVP button below. Cost for this great lunch of Atlantic Cod and sides, drinks and a dessert cookie is just $20.00 per person. The profits all go toward EAA Chapter 66’s hangar fund.

I’m hoping this goes well, and can be a blueprint for other EAA Chapters to host The Old Farts Flying Club as a fund raising venue. This could open up some new destinations for us, while providing revenue for these chapters. Good for them… good for us!!! Our ability to provide a reasonably close count on the number of attendees is a HUGE benefit in planning these lunches. 

FUEL… I talked with Arcadia Airport Manager Shelley Peacock. Fuel price on Thursday will be $5.31 per gallon. Shelley is lowering it ten cents just for Old Farts. As we all know… Shelley has traditionally made every effort to keep her fuel price low, to help stimulate traffic. Unfortunately, the load she’s working from right now came in a couple weeks ago, when fuel was at its highest. She is hoping the price will go down with the next load. Shelley also asked that I mention her low prices on aviation oil. Please check inside for pricing. You will need to pay with cash or check… as they are not equipped for credit card purchases in the FBO.

WEATHER!!! There is a front moving down from the north. I’m seeing VFR conditions until later in the day, but there is some scattered light rain around. With that in mind, we will be trying to begin serving promptly at 11:00, and move things along for those wishing to get home a little early. Winds are forecast to be from the southwest, so runway 24 will be the likely choice. Please plan to enter the pattern at a 45 degree approach to the downwind. If we’re all on the same page, there is less chance of being cut off in the pattern.

EARLYBIRDS… Shelley and her crew will have coffee and some light fare for you. As always, early arrivals help cut down on congestion in the pattern. Please see the parking diagram. Try to reserve the hard surface ramp space for out heavier aircraft. Light planes, especially taildraggers can taxi back to the wooded area near the pavillion. Please be careful not to prop blast the food! 😳

That’s about it! Keep the Shiny Side Up!
